No, sorry I can't help you there unfortunately.  I'm not a very
experienced PHP coder either; I just used it to create a basic web
server.  I don't do uploads so no samples available.

I noticed certain items in your code the linked it to the mime-type and
figured that if you can echo what is actually happening so you can see
it, then you can fix it.  

You might be able to get some help at:

 http://ca3.php.net/manual/en/index.php

the PHP online manual. It has a lot of sample code contributed by users.
