android java.lang.IllegalStateException: Couldn’t read row 0, col 0 from CursorWindow

I am developing an application which download some files and save their text in file_content field to database. The file sizes can vary from some KBs to 10 MB. The app works for all sizes while saving. The problem occurs when using select statement on long file_content records. It gives

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Couldn’t read row 0, col 0 from CursorWindow

when fetching such rows. Are there any limits on field content size? If so, then why it is letting us to save and giving error while retrieving?
Here is my code snipped that fetches row:

public String getFileContent(MyFile gc) {
if(!isDBOpen()) {
open();
}
try {
String mQuery = "SELECT * FROM " + DBOpenHelper.TABLE_SAVED_FILES + " WHERE " + DBOpenHelper.COLUMN_ID + " = " + gc.id;
Cursor mCursor = database.rawQuery(mQuery, null);
if(mCursor.getCount() <= 0) {
return null;
}
if(mCursor.moveToFirst()) {
return getCursorRowContent(mCursor);
}
} catch (Exception e) {
e.getMessage();
}
return null;
}
private String getCursorRowContent(Cursor mCursor) throws Exception {
return mCursor.getString(mCursor.getColumnIndex(DBOpenHelper.COLUMN_FILE_CONTENT));
}

Any idea what is going on? I have tested it on 2 to 3 devices.

Android SQLite returns rows in cursor windows that have the maximum size of 2MB as specified by config_cursorWindowSize. If your row exceeds this limit, you’ll get this error.

Storing large data in sqlite database is not a good idea anyway. Store files in filesystem and paths in database.
