    My Samsung Galaxy Ace has the latest official CyanogenMod nightly. I have Windows XP, a bluetooth dongle, and bluesoleil drivers.

    I am able to send images and apk files from my pc to my phone. But when I try to send an epub file, or a 7z file, my pc says:

    "Access is denied. Please make sure you have the proper right to access the files or folders."

    So I tried to create a compressed file and instead of using 7z, I used .zip. And it was able to send it. So I'm positive that my phone has a list of allowed file types to be received. Is there any way to edit it? Thanks.

    PS: I tried declining a file (that successfully went through), and it gave the same access denied error on my pc. So I believe that my phone is automatically denying certain file types. Thanks.

    I am in the same situation dude, i never had any problems sending epub or 7z files, try to restart ur bluetooth, both in phone and pc, then give them a few seconds to activate properly and try sending again. Usually works for me.

    Anyways zipping is always there, but it doesn't bothers me much, still it'd be nice if i didn't had to use that method.
