Question about Computers & Internet
I use an HP Pavilion laptop so I don't know the exact setup of a Sony Vaio, however, I still believe I can be of some assistance. First, make sure your wireless is turned on. Depending on the year of your computer you may only have to touch the emblem of an antenna, press a button along the rim of your device, or enter the control panel and turn it on through your settings (Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Add A Wireless Device to Network). Depending on your version of Windows there may be some variations to this list of options to select. You may have to select Network Sharing Center before selecting Add A Wireless Device to Network.
If the bluetooth is built in you'll be able to search for other bluetooth devices from your computer. If it isn't built in then your system will never find a wireless device to add and you'll have to buy a bluetooth transmitter (Best Buy usually has plenty of good ones). Before you search place your phone in discoverable mode. Once your phone has been found click it and follow the instructions. Due to compatibility requirements this isn't guaranteed to work, your phone and computer stand a chance of not getting along. If this is the case then grab the data transfer cable from your cell phone's packaging (it looks like a charger but it plugs into the USB port instead of the wall) and connect your phone to your laptop with it.
Your computer should install the proper drivers for it automatically if they are available. Once that happens you can click on Computer (My Computer) and find your phone connected as external storage there. If you open it you'll be able to see all the files and folders on your memory card. From this point use the instruction manual that came with your phone so as to avoid removing or rewriting any important items in your phone's programming. This is by FAR much easier though a little less convenient.
I hope this fixes your problem ;)
