    Whenever I try to move a large file to my Treo via QuickInstall, the Treo shuts off automatically part way through and I end up getting an error.

    I have tried going into preferences to keep it from turning off automatically, but that is not an option. I can only increase it to 3 min.

    Right now I am only trying to move a movie file to my card to test out playing it on my Treo. I dragged it to QI, which "converted" it. When I hotsync'ed, it began, ran for several minutes, then died with an error.

    (i even tried to move it to my SD card by going to the C drive and finding where Palm queue's the file and just moving it myself to the SD card. The Treo could not find / read the file when I did that, though.)

    Any help? Does anyone else have this problem when moving large files to their Treo's SD?

    Get an SD card reader. That is the only practical way to move large files onto SD cards.

    Hotsync is badly designed for moving large files. The best method is to use an SD card reader (see TC's latest article on the subject); an alternative would be an application like Palm File Browser (available at MTDN) or Card Export II (available at softick.com).

    Card reader is the "best" option.
    Card export will work too. I used card export to put a movie on my SD. A two hour movie took Ten minutes... but it worked flawlessly. You can get card export at www.softick.com

    SD Card Reader: actually that is what I tried when I said I tried moving the files myself. I have an SD card reader.

    I have some .wmv movies I want to watch on my Treo. I read the best way to do that was to drag and drop them into Quick Install and let it convert them. I did that. Hotsync'ing after that did not work. I found where QI "stores" the files and moved them from there to the SD card. But my Treo wouldn't "recognize" them.

    There is my problem. I use the SD reader, but why won't my Treo read the files?

    thanks again.

    That is what I was understanding also.

    Which goes back to my original question: How do I transfer them if my Hotsync keeps timing out? Do other people not have this issue? How do I circumvent it?

    When I first upgraded to the 650 I thought that quicksync converting my movie clips to a viewable format was awesome. But the process is so long it just wasnt worth it to me. Plus i was running into some of the same problems. My quicksync would lag and the movie wouldnt finish.

    I decided that trying to view WMV on the treo was just too much of a pain in the ***!
    I will just wait until a player comes out that supports it... hopefully it will be TCPMP.

    But I have read several threads on here from people that have done it. I switched from a Pocket PC to my Treo (no regrets), so I have a few Gigs of movies saved in the .wmv format. I just want to be able to watch them on my Treo. I figure there has to be a way for it to happen. I have faith in the board regulars to let me know what that way is.

    Is there a utility to change them into a different format? (I'm on a Mac so not sure what tools you have)

    The only utility that I have read about so far is the Quick Install. Which is why I want mine keeps getting errors and "timing out". I am just curious if others have done it successfully, and if they have any tips.
