Directory structure of the host machine.

By the nature of the files, EXE files are likely to be fairly close to the root of a particular hard drive, perhaps only 2 or 3 levels down into the directory tree.

However, JPEG and TMP files are likely to be buried deep in the internal directory tree of the hard drive. The filepath to access these files may be excessive in terms of characters in the complete file address. Try transferring these files TO and then FROM a higher location in the directory tree.
