    I am unable to upload Flash files in Fetch. Tried it in both 3.03 and 4, and the Flash movie never loads properly. An example is http://www.jpwebdesign.com/staging/home.html

    These same files work perfectly when loaded up by another person (not using Fetch) on a distant computer to a different subfolder:
    http://www.jpwebdesign.com/SEAMUS

    If anyone knows why this is happening, I'd be much obliged to know.

    thanks,

    JP

    Have you tried uploading the file in Raw Data format? Are there any other Flash files on that server that work?

    Thank you...yes both Flash files (index.swf & jpflash.swf) were uploaded in Raw Data format. My colleague uploaded the exact files up to a subfolder on the same server and they work perfectly. Any thoughts?

    thanks,

    The files in the two locations you list are slightly different: in the file that does not work some linefeeds have been turned into carriage returns. So it appears that at some point the file was transfered in Text (aka ASCII) format, rather than in Raw Data (aka binary) format.

    I just deleted the .swf files from the server and reloaded them individually as Raw Data files. They transferred as Binary and still do not work. Please advise.

    Is it possible that the files are corrupted on your disk?

    No Sir, it's not possible. The files run perfectly off line and did not originate from this computer or network. They were downloaded from a shared server, as well as retrived from a CD. Either way, it doesn't seem to make a difference in the outcome. I can upload the identical files using CUTEFTP from a PC platform, but that is really very inconvenient given my work stations are all MAC. Please advise.

    Thanks,

    JP
