    HELP UPLOADING MP3 FILES (I can't)

    Just wondering if there are any tips for uploading my MP3's for the Strictly Thread's? I can do it on the PC at work (which has fast internet link) but not my own PC at home, which is 56K dial-up (and old...350MHz).

    Unfortunately the only solution is to either wait a lot longer for it to upload, or reduce the bit rate of the file considerably.

    You can try http://www.rapidshare.de or http://www.megaupload.com to upload your file. If you're on dial'up, it may take several minutes.

    It isn't the fact that it takes longer, it just always times out and WON'T download. I was wondering if it was a tech problem w/my PC?
    I'll give those other links a try, thanks JHR.

    I'd encourage you to upload your files to iBreatheMusic rather than another site if this is a strictly contribution (our server shouldn't be any slower than the ones that JailhouseRock mentioned). The only thing to bear in mind is that we have a file size limit of 1.5MB per mp3 file (if it's larger, it won't get through). If your file complies with this limit, then it shoudn't take much longer than about 5 minutes to upload on your dialup connection. Perhaps give it another try?

    My files have been right at 1.5MB, so maybe that's why it won't take them...I'll edit them and give 'em another go. Thanks again!

    To be precise, the limit is 1572864bytes
