Unable to send protected object

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have a Nokia n81 and I’m trying to solve a Bluetooth error. When I try to send a certain file to my computer via blue tooth I get this error: Unable to send protected object.

I have lost my USB connection and I want to transfer some files from my cell phone to the computer but it won’t let me. How do I fix this problem regarding file transfer?

Is there any way to get over with that and send those items?

Unable to send protected object


I suppose you are trying to send a file that is an application like SIS, Java or others with uncommon file extension.

The Nokia cell phone has a CCL or Closed Content List, in which these lists cannot be forwarded to any devices, even if the other device is also a Nokia handset.

If you want to send those kinds of files via blue-tooth, you should rename its file extension first.  On some phones other than Nokia, you cannot view the file extension of a certain file, and only the names are visible.

But in Nokia you can view every file extension. If you want to send a file for example, Theme.sis you should rename the file extension to .mp3 or .jpg.

You will be prompted by warning that says, “file may be unusable when file extension is changed”. Just ignore the warning and proceed in renaming the file extension.

You may now be able to send the file via blue-tooth, to your computer or any other device. You may now change the extension to its original name.
