Problem downloading files up to 100 mb

No problem with smaller files. When the file reaches its size it just stops an the legend ''a few seconds to finish'' can stay all night. Changed antivirus, even formatted hd and the problem stays.

Well, here's a bit complicated, yet effective method that just might reduce your downloading headaches... Let's say you're connect to the Internet using a 28.8K modem and that your Internet service provider lets you telnet to their server. Of course, your provider's server can download files much faster, so the idea here is to download the file to their server at high speed, split it, and retrieve parts at the highest speed you can to your provider's server. Generally speaking, this method not only is a faster way to download files, but it is also a more reliable method since you'll be downloading many smaller files rather than one large file.
First, find out the FTP address of the large (larger than 16M for example) file that you want to download. For example:
ftp://ftp.x.com/bigfile.zip
Telnet to your Internet service provider's server.
telnet x.com
From within the telnet session, download your file to your provider's server. Following is a "screen shout" of a sample file transfer on an UNIX compatible server. Blue/bold text represents your input.
ftp
ftp> open ftp.x.com
Connected to ftp.x.com.
220 ftp x.cpm FTP Service (Version 2.0).
User (ftp.x.com:(none)): anonymous
331 Anonymous access allowed, send identity as
Password: my_address@x.com
ftp> binary
200 Type set to I.
ftp> get bigfile.zip
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for bigfile.zip
226 Transfer complete.
ftp> quit
221 Thank you for using x.com! Once the file is download to the server, the next step is to divide the file into smaller pieces so that you will not waste too much time downloading should your Internet dial-up connection go down.
split -b 2000b bigfile.zip
You're almost there! Now simply log off from your telnet session and start downloading (from your provider's server to your computer) smaller files (not the bigfile.zip) which the above split command (on most UNIX compatible machines) created.
Once you have all the files, simply merge them and you got a good copy of the original bigfile.zip. If you're using DOS or Windows, you can merge files using the following command (assuming that bigfile.zip (16000 byte file) was divided into 8 2000 byte files named xaa to xah):
copy /b xaa xab xac xad xae xaf xag xah bigfile.zip
Don't forget to log back into your Internet service provider's computers and delete temporary files (bigfile.zip and xaa..xah) once you've made sure that your downloaded copy is in good condition. Doesn't sound like the above steps could make your downloads faster or more reliable? Well, in most cases it does; specially if the file you're downloading is rather large. The reason why this method could possibly be faster is because you can download files from your provider's computer to your computer faster than from most remote sites. Of course, the reason for reliability is that downloading many smaller files makes it possible to resume a download without wasting as much time as resuming a larger file download would.

When i try to attach a file its pops out a legend where it says that internet is hving a problem but it does not specify what exactly is the issue, i can not attach any kind of file what can i do


What size is the file? There are maximum file sizes, like Gmail will take 26MB, Windows Live, I THINK,
is 20MB. Try sending a smaller file to yourself as a test.

I have my S610 set to take photos @ 5MB. But when I download them to Picassa, they are ~1.2 MB. Is this a camera setting or Picassa?


Neither. The camera is taking pictures at 5 megapixels resolution. The file size of the image is only loosely related to the resolution. You'll note that your pictures are all different sizes. The size is dependent on the content of the picture. If you take a picture of a blank wall or a plain blue sky, the file size will be smaller than the file size of a picture of a cluttered scene, because it takes more bytes to record detail.

If you look at your pictures in your image viewer, you'll see that the pictures are all the same dimension (width and height), regardless of the file size.

Why does youtube stop playing and then starts again while a circular motion appears in the middle of the screen?


It is very simple youtube uses a streaming system based in flash, this means that the youtube player calls a file of an indetermined size stored in a server, did you ever noticed that in the playing bar below the video there is a red bar that fills the bar progresively this is the bar that shows the amount of video downoading of the file in the server, when the size of the file is to high it takes more time for the video player to download it, what happens is that the playing time is shorter than the download time so the player reaches the amount of video played faster than the video downloaded and it stops until the download progress a littlle bit more to continue playing the video, so if the video has a smaller file size the less the player stops, but small size videos could mean a down of quality in the image of the video depending also in the length of the video and in your internet connection speed.

Good luck

How do I make an image file smaller so I can send it by e-mail?


To make an image file smaller for e-mail transmission, change the image file size in "Exif Viewer" or "FinePixViewer". Changing the size of an image file 1. Start up the Viewer and select the folder containing the image you wish to send. 2. Double-click the thumbnail for the image file you want to resize to open the image in its own full-size window. 3. Select "Image size" in the "Image" menu. 4. Set "%" as the "Unit" used for file size display. Then enter a value lower than 100 as the "Width" or "Height" and click the [OK] button. 5. Select "Save as" in the "File" menu to save the image. (You can also reduce the image file size by lowering the quality in "Save as type".)
