    Transfer files via bluetooth from MAC

    I have Xoom Wifi, Samsung Fascinate, and Macbook (Leopard OS). I can use ASTRO bluetooth to transfer files from Xoom to my Mac successfully. However, I haven't been able to do the opposite. Everything is paired (Mac and Xoom). When I am on my Mac and select Send File... and select Xoom, it gives me "transfer failed: Internal error." I thought it is a problem that Xoom won't receive any file via bluetooth, so I try to send a file from my Fascinate to Xoom. It worked!

    So, I now think it has something to do with my Mac. I downloaded a software that allows me to transfer files from Mac to Xoom via USB. Is there anything that I need in order for me to send files from Mac to Xoom via bluetooth.

    Updated!!!! Just found out some interesting things. I could transfer jpg, doc, and pdf files from mac to xoom via bluetooth. But when I try something like .docx, .xlsx, .dmg, it gives me the same error. So, I suspect that there must be some setting in xoom that refuses to accept some types of files when transferring via bluetooth.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hmmm I haven't tried the bluetooth transfer because I either used network shared over WiFi or the Android File Transfer utility.

    Could it be a firewall issue on your Mac?

    What do you use to transfer over Wifi?

    I actually did try to transfer .docx file from Fascinate to Xoom and it didn't work as well. I think it has something to do with file extension. Some extensions work and some don't...... kind of stuck.

    If you download the "File Manager HD" app it allows you to create "LAN Connections". This features lets you access shared folders on your network that use SMB.

    I finally found the solution. I download Bluetooth File app and it is now working fine. I can transfer any file from my mac to xoom via bluetooh.

    I will give File Manager HD a try. Thanks.
