    So i got my Galaxy Note today! Its my first Android phone.

    Im trying to put a mkv file onto it, Transformers 3 BluRay to be precise. To show all the iPhone lovers at work how awesome my new phone is :)

    Im having a little trouble though, im just dropping it into a Video folder i made, though i have tried it in a few different folders etc incase that was the problem.
    Its gets somewhere over halfway, then computers says the device has stopped responding.

    Phone says

    Sorry
    Application MTP Application (in process com.android.MtpApplication) is not responding

    Ive succesfully copied smaller files over in the same way. Am i doing something wrong ?
    Ive tried various folder, Ive tried keeping the phone screen on, not letting it turn off incase that was stopping the transfer.

    What's the size of the mkv file? I think the Note will not support anything bigger than 4gb.

    Use mkvtoolnix to split the file.

    RingKing is right, the SD card file system is FAT32 and it's limiting the file size of your files to ~ 4GB. Note could play nicely the file you've mentioned, if you could store or accessed it somehow.
