Moving a 11 GB file from #! to Galaxy S5

Using the first method detailed here i was able to transfer a pic to the smartphone...

Yet what I really want to transfer are mkv files, movies. when I tried to move the 11 GB mkv file by dragging and dropping it in the android-device directory - all the physical and virtual RAM is gradually consumed..when there'smore RAM I'm prompt with this

That's the first method..I tried transferring it using Airdroid

I've transferred a 110 MB file to SD Card but when I try to transfer the 11 GB file I'm prompt with

Failed to upload. not enough free space on SD card

Although AirDroid acknowledges that I have 30GB of free space on the SD!!

Any transfer to External SD fails.


Right now I can only transfer movies by removing the microSD card and connecting it the PC using a card reader...which is quite a hassle..because of the Otterbox cover.

Surely there's an easier way?..

Re: Moving a 11 GB file from #! to Galaxy S5

I am not wanting to burst your bubble, but I would suggest instead of trying to transfer an 11GB file, that you use ffmpeg to shrink the file.  Maybe to 480  Learning command line of ffmpeg will aid you for years down the road.  There are also gui's for video manipulation for linux. 

However I do not own a smart phone (old dumb samsung rugby) and I do not have any 11 gb files on my computer.

@837183:  Check out WiFi File Transfer Pro in the Google Play Store:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta … ransferpro

You may need to install Google Chrome if you want to transfer more than one file at a time.  It appears the app uses flash and multi-file transfer doesn't appear to work in any other browser I've used under Linux.

...use the SFTP client in ES File Explorer (all you need is SSH on your computer), or an Android FTP server or something (upload via FTP). I do the former.

@KrunchTime

Thanks, using that software (I paid for Pro) I can download from the SD, but not upload it....there's no manual for this app (there was but the entire site smarterdroid.com is down) and the only contact information for this app is on the app page to a Gmail address, I've sent the developer an email to said address..but I'm not so hopeful he'll help :S

@twoion

Thanks, I'll try it..

Re: Moving a 11 GB file from #! to Galaxy S5

So are you saying you can transfer files from your phone's SD to your computer, but not from your computer to your phone's SD?  I use the app to transfer files to and from my Samsung tablet.  I haven't experienced any issues other than not being able to transfer multiple files at a time since I stopped using the Chrome browser.

I wonder if it's an issue of the size of the file you're attempting to transfer.  Even though it appears that you have enough space, maybe a temporary file is created, thus doubling the size of the transfer.  I've heard of this happening before.

Re: Moving a 11 GB file from #! to Galaxy S5

I'm not able to move files from internal storage to external storage on my tablet except with the file manager that Samsung provided.

Re: Moving a 11 GB file from #! to Galaxy S5

hmmm... i tend to agree with paxmark1, but let's just assume you have a good reason to copy an 11GB video to your phone.

my gut tells me, don't do this over wlan, use the usb cable.

i'm not sure about the "first method" you linked in your first post, is that the gphotofs method? which gives you a folder accessible by standard utilities? it say there that "The media folders can now be displayed in thunar." - so not the whole sd card? and you are sure you still have enough free space within those media folders?

another thought, don't use your file manager for copying, but use "cp".
there's also low-level mtp (or adb= android debug bridge) tools that would allow a direct copy, iirc.
