Make sure the IR is turned on - it may be off by default to conserve battery power. You can get to it via Settings > control panel. It might also be necessary to enable it in BIOS. You should get the "boing" noise when the laptops are in range.

How to use infrared port in sony ericssion k220i . what is main use of infrared port. what can i do using this facility?


Hello,

The infrared port is by the left side of the phone, it is along the line that splits the front and the back of the phone. It is mostly covered by a thick red glass or plastic.

Infrared is a device on a phone that allows you to send and receive file using the infrared radiation wireless wave. It works like a bluetooth device, just that it must be placed close to the infrared port of the phone that is sending or receiving files from. You cannot send or receive files that does not have infrared using your own infrared.

Infrared can be used to send and receive files (data, song, pictures, videos etc).

To use the infrared of the sony ericsson K220i, you have to go to your phone 'menu', go to the 'settings', select the 'connectivity', then you select the 'infrared', turn it 'on', when you are to receive a file, you place your phone close to the sending devices infrared port. Also when receiving a file, you do the same.

When you want to send a file through infrared, you go to the file you want to send, you select the option, select send from the option, a pop up blog will come up asking you how you want to send the file, you select via infrared and your infrared will come on, the device you are sending it to would have its infrared turned on as well. The infrared ports must be placed close to themselves before the files can be sent.

Take care

I can't receive and send a message by using pc suite


hello there!! thanks for using Fixya.com!

I guess these requirements will help you...

Requirements
To send and receive SMS messages via a mobile phone using a Windows PC, you need:
  • a mobile phone that can be connected to your PC (some mobile phones do not have an interface for connecting to a PC)
  • a Windows program that can control the mobile phone to send and receive SMS messages
Today, most mobile phones support at least one of the following options to connect to a PC:
  • Via infrared (IrDA)
  • Via Bluetooth
  • Via a USB cable
  • Via a serial cable
The infrared and Bluetooth option should be very useful to many notebook computer users since nowadays many notebook computers have built-in infrared or Bluetooth support.
The Windows program for sending and receiving SMS messages is provided by some mobile phone manufacturers. For example, Nokia offers a software package called Nokia PC Suite to their mobile phone users. It can be downloaded free of charge from Nokia's web site. Microsoft has also released a free program called SMS Sender that enables Windows users to send SMS messages via a GSM mobile phone from a PC.
In the following sections, we will explain how to use Microsoft SMS Sender to send SMS messages on your Windows PC.

Hope this will help you..have a nice day! Or try to reinstall the CD (pc suite) on your laptop or pc, this will make it very helpful as well.

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

Hi..this is such a simple question..could be embarrassing.Have just purchased an Acer5920 and have been attempting to transfer files from mobile to laptop via infrared.. I didnt have to enable or change...


Yes, you would have to enable the IR port in the boot setup screens.

When booting the laptop, press F2 or F10 or DEL, there is usually a hint in the top right of your display just as its starting up.

Once you enter the setup screens look for your IR port and toggle it to enabled.

Let me know if that doesn't work as you may need to load the drivers for it in Windows.
Go to this PDF file
and then scroll down until you see this entry below:
Consumer Infrared Driver Ver. 7.1.64.1010
Click on the blue entry below it to download the zip file. Once you have downloaded it move it to a unique folder such as:
c:\software\acer\ir driver\
Now, double click on the zip file to unpack it. Click on the folders until you reach the readme.txt file and open that for instructions.

Contact me using the comment box below to ask any questions that may come up. Once you have completed this and have your IR working then, and only then rate this as Fixed.

Worldvet

Can i sync a handspring?


Recent version's of the HOTSYNC app have a provision for IR transfers (older versions may not though). So you should check the HOTSYNC app on the Visor and see if it already has IR transfer abilities. If it does: Use the downarrow to specify the IR transfer on the Visor. Setup HOTSYNC on the computer to accept IR transfers. Line up the ports and tap the HOTSYNC button on the Visor's display. If it doesn't: You may be outta luck. Downloading an updated version of the HOTSYNC app (or some other utility) won't help because you'll need to Sync in order to get the app on the Visor.
