    Hi, I'm trying to use MSN to transfer some files to a buddy of mine. The files are about 300 Mb each, there are two files total(600Mb).

    Each time I try to send a file out MSN tells me that the transfer failed and timed out. Is there a limit to the file size that you can send through MSN?

    How are you sending it? Email has a limit, of course. But there should be no limit on size if you are using FTP or something like that.

    I'm using MSN Messenger, the chat program. I'm not sure what you mean by FTP, will I need to download another program in order to transfer my files.

    What is your connection internet speed? If it is 56k you have no chance! And yes MSN Messenger has a limit but i'm not sure what it is. you are best off sending the files on a cd!
