We have the google drive api running and have it set up and working. The issue we are having is when students try to upload a file from their google drive. If the file is created in google docs it succeeds but when they try to upload a file that they have copied to their google drive that was created in a different program it fails with an "syntax error json parse error unrecognized token '>' " message.
I have searched on the forums and in Google and can find lot's of references to this type of error but no real suggestions on how to fix it. Is there a way to work around this?
