Default Sending pro tools sessions using mobile me

I am trying to send a protools session to a friend using my mobile me account.
I upload from my public folder and I only seem to be uploading the ptf file and not the wave or session files. I am very new to this and need assistance as to what I am doing wrong. I am using pro tools 8.0 factory with an I mac 4gb. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

not the correct section but you need to copy the session folder up
The session folder should contain:
the session file .ptf
a folder called Audio Files
it may also contain but may not nessaraly needed:
a folder called Fades Files
a folder called Session File Backups
a folder called Video Files
a folder called Region Groups

try to zip the folder containing your session file and its audio file folder. You can´t upload a folder.

Unless you use your mobile me for other things, I would probably recommend dropbox over it. You have the option to get a free account wit 2 GB, but can upgrade it to 5 GB by recommending it to your friends (or using any other email addresses you have).

If you want 50 GB, it's $10 a month; 100 GB costs $20/month. What it basically does is create copies of your files on 3 different levels: 1 on you main machine, one on the server, and another on any computer synchronized with your Dropbox folder.

It's all done within your computer's filesystem, so the program basically runs in the background. I love it since my session files usually never go over 2 GB, and my friend can send me his uncompressed HD videos over it.
