Why can I transfer pics from my phone via Bluetooth to a PC if it's running XP, but not if it's running Windows 7?

Why can I transfer pics from my phone via Bluetooth to a PC if it's running XP, but not if it's running Windows 7?

I have a Nokia C3-01. When I try to transfer files to my PC while it is running Windows XP, everything goes through fine. But if I boot into Windows 7, any transfers larger than about 200 kb will fail at about 20%. If the file being transferred is smaller than 200 kb, it will go through. This doesn't apply if the PC is running Windows XP; XP will accept and happily receive a file of any size.

This baffles me to no end and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what could be causing this.
