Do you check the status in the uploadDone handler? What do you see?


on uploadDone pUrl, pStatus
   answer pUrl & return & pStatus
end uploadDone

How are you doing the uploads. Do you fire the script manually each  
time you upload, or are you running some kind of repeat loop to  
upload multiple images? (Shouldn't make a difference, but it would  
probably be better to copy exactly what you're doing.)

Have you tried using "active" mode?

   libUrlSetFtpMode "active"
  (change back using libUrlSetFtpMode "passive")

Is there any other intensive activity going on at the same time as  
the upload. For example, a massive repeat loop that starts just after  
you issue the libUrlFtpUpload command?
