    Hello, why do you wan't to use Bluetooth?

     

    Are these Macs in the same location? Using the same Router or Modem?

    I had a small jpeg on my laptop that I wanted to send in an email from my other newer mac.  I finally found a way to access the drives on the other mac through the network, but it only saved a zero kb file that would not open on the newer computer.  So I ended up transferring it on a flash drive --- which is what I've been doing for over a year and am trying to find a better way.

     

    Thanks for the reply

    as usual, it's too hard to figure out..  o well I'll keep using the flash drive method... ***** but maybe someday it will be possible to share files on multiple computers..  dont feel bad that you couldn't help..

    WE can still try, was the other drive on a Mac?

     

    What format is the other drive?

     

    File Sharing should work, did you try it from the other end?

    Hello

    I am having this same problem. I have the bluetooth enabled and it sees both computers, it will let me send small files of no memory size but when I go to send larger ones the connection drops? One computer is a Powermac g4 laptop running Version Leopard 10.5.8 and the other is a new Mac Mini running Mountain Lion. Any assistance would be appreciated as I would have to do as the person above is doing and transfer to memory stick. :/
