TPT Bluetooth rejects receiving certain types of files.

I've crossed with a strange issue where I tried to transfer document file from the t400 to the TPT through bluetooth, but the operation gets rejected.

 

But if I try to send an image file (jpg) the TPT shows me popup message to accept the file.

 

I've tried a workaround where If I rename the document file extension to an image file extension (example: .docx to .jpg), then I can send the file to the TPT and afterwards using any common File Manager rename it back to its original file extension (from .jpg to .docx).

 

I don't know if I am missing to "check" or "uncheck" any option in settings.Because my t400 can essentially send the same file to another bluetooth device without any issue.

 

Sugestions?

Re: TPT Bluetooth rejects receiving certain types of files.

well, I haven't tried because I use office 2010 and 2007 and most of the time use the natively common extension for office files (.docx, xlsx,pptx,etc.)

 

I believe that TPT should accept any file and put it in /mnt/sdcard/bluetooth even if you don't have an application for handling those files.
