Re: how to connect the Polaroid Pogo to a computer
You can only connect the Pogo to a PC by using a Bluetooth wireless connection. Once a bluetooth connection is established between your PC and the PoGo you can print by simply using Explorer to send a JPEG file to the PoGo via Bluetooth (no printer driver needed).

Please remove the usb cable from the computer and printer and reconnect again and check it that is it printing properly. If it not working remove the printer from the computer then uninstall of the printer software and reinstall from the cd, when it ask to connect printer then only connect the printer after that it will print properly.
The two devices are probably overloading the USB power. The total power output on one hub in the computer is limited to 500mA. If they work separately, this is most likely the problem. The way to fix this is to purchase an inexpensive powered USB hub (it will have a power supply to plug into the hub as well as the USB cable to the computer).
This should work. First check your Notebook to see if it is BlueTooth enabled. If not don't worry you'll need to buy a USB Dongle. (about $8.00 street value Check eBay.) Go to Control Panel >BlueTooth run the wizard. Enter code 6000 the code to recognize your Pogo. Normally the Pogo will accept a jpeg from your camera. If you intend to manipulate your jpeg in any way say with Photoshop - I mean crop or enhance - sharpen, hue, saturation changes you might not have any success. There seems to be very little technical info for the Pogo printer. Very poor of Polaroid such a well respected name. Colin
Check to see if your Nokia is Bluetooth enabled. Check your manual provided with the phone. If not you have to find a phone or camera that is compatible. As an alternative DL your photos to your computer and send to the Pogo. Ckeck to see if your computer is Bluetooth enabled. You may have to get a USB Dongle to transmit the file.
take the battery out of the pogo for a couple of minutes put it back in make sure its charged we and then reboot you phone, if that does not work then u have a bad cable or a software conflict. good luck
The PoGo can connect to a PC with Bluetooth only. Once you establish a Bluetooth connection with your PC, simply copy any JPEG file to the PoGo using Explorer. No printer driver is needed, just copy the file to the PoGo over the Bluetooth connection. If your PC doesn't have Bluetooth, you can buy a USB Bluetooth dongle for $5-$20.
I have that camera and a new Pogo printer. To print, attach the camera to the printer with a USB cable. Make sure the camera's "take pictures/view pictures" slide switch is in the down view pictures position. Turn on the printer, turn on the camera. Select the picture to print. Press the camera's FUNC SET button. Accept the default settings and press the FUNC SET button again. In a few seconds, your picture should start to print.
