Are you sending in the appropriate mode? Windows defaults to ASCII, which is fine for text, but for anything else, you'll need to force it to binary.

thanks bryan. it did work.

but 1 more small problem.....................
now whenever i want to copy the files i have to change the mode to binary manually.
can't binary be made default?
I made binary default thro webmin but it didn't work. I also checked proftpd.conf file under /usr/local/etc/, but it doesnt have option of the same.

You would need to set it as the default on the client somehow. Perhaps a command line option? I always just do it manually each time.
