Sound has nothing to do with infrared devices.
The yellow exclamation mark that you see under the device manager is due to drivers of the infrared device not found or is not installed properly.
There might also be a possibility that the device is not getting recognized by the computer due to corrupted drivers so the drivers of the particular needs to be installed again with the CD.

How to install games to motorola c650


hi there,


You can download ganes to you phone through different methods like: Over-the-Air (OTA), Infrared (IR), Bluetooth and Cable

1. For uploading through OTA: make sure your wap is well configured and working (each operator has different settings). Enter the .jad url of the game (URL of jad can be found below), then the phone will automatically download the .jad file. After the .jad file is downloaded you will be prompted to confirm the downloading of the .jar file. If you press yes then you can download the file and install the game. Volia! In general you should make sure that the .jar file will fit on your phone. Some devices like Nokia Series 40 (MIDP1) limit the .jar size to 64k, others will limit it to under 100k. Also most devices have a low limitation on the size of all games (midlets) installed, so you should always check the available memory and in some cases remove any old unused games. We have taken the limitation of each device into consideration and there's nothing to worry about here.

2. For uploading through Infrared: First you should get an IRDA peripheral and connect it to your PC. It's usually a USB device. Connect it and install the software.
Now there are two cases:
a. either your phone supports IRDA directly and in such case it's sufficient to upload the .jar file to your phone by right clicking on the file and use 'Send to' menu. Note that you should configure IRDA properly to connect to the phone. We are using the following configuration for SigmaTel USB-IRDA: "Infrared Transiver Type": SigmaTel 4000, "Min. Turn-Around Time": 1.0ms, "Speed Enable": 115200.
b. or your phone doesn't support IRDA directly but has IR. In such case you should use your manufactorer software like Nokia PC Suite.
3. For uploading through Bluetooth: Usually this is faster and easier than Infrared. Install your Bluetooth usb device. Right click on the .jar file and select the menu 'bluetooth device' inside 'send to'. You can also pair your device with your computer to make things faster. Once the .jar file is on your phone then you can install it
4. For uploading through cable: some phones don't have neither Infrared nor bluetooth support. You can use the manufactorer cable and connect it your PC (either USB cable or com cable). In such case you should also use a dedicated software for uploading files to your device

Please use the below mentioned link to find games.

Cannot install java on samsung i640


Im very sorry Dude

  • It is NOT officially possible to install java MIDlets on samsung handsets (excluding smartphones) via bluetooth, IrDa, USB cable or serial cable. MIDlets can only be downloaded by Over-The-Air (OTA) via a download server
  • There is currently no method for installing MIDlets on other platforms other than by OTA/GPRS via a download server.
BUT THERE ARE SOME UNOFFICIAL METHOD PLEASE TRY THIS BUT RISK IS WITH U.

Install JAVA games on your Samsung via a USB cable, BT or even an IR port
The method here is rather straightforward. It has been tested on my two D500 phones without a single problem biggrin.gif

1. Download and install Softick PPP from here. The software is designed for Palm users, so if you receive any error messages such as unable to locate USBPORT.dll, just ignore them.

2. Active your IR connection or hook your USB cable into the phone.
For IR users, you need to active the IR connection on both of your laptop and D500, and approach the laptop with your D500 to let it find the phone prior to any transferring.
For USB connection, the one I tested is from fonefunshop

3. Start Softick PPP, and check if it has your connection in its 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial'. Active it if done.

4. Run 'Uploader.exe' program and add a jad file.

5. Enable Serial Java download - #*536963#.

6. Enter Serial Java menu #*5737425#, and choose USB from "1 PPP UP'. Please bear in mind, just do it once for each switch on/off!
Select second option - "2.Serial Download"

7. Let upload and softick PPP access the net if you installed a firewall.





-More details--------------------------------------------------------

If you are using a USB cable, please take the following steps:

1. deactive Softick PPP, and exit it.
2. connect the cable,
3. run Samsung's PIM & File Manager to make sure that you get connected. If not, please switch off and on your mobile and try it again.
4. run Softick PPP
5. go to it's 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial' to check if it has a connection such as COM7 Devicess_mdm0. If so, select it, otherwise exit the Softick PPP and go back to the first step. (you may find the proper COM setting from the windows device manager->modems->Samsung Mobile USB modem)
6. active Softick PPP.
7. run Uploader.exe
8. ......

For IR users,

1. deactive Softick PPP, and exit it.
2. active your IR connection。
3. approach your phone to the laptop, and make sure there displays an icon in your tray area and it gives a message 'there is a device around....'
4. run Samsung's PIM & File Manager to make sure that you get connected via IR. If not, please switch off and on your mobile and try it again.
5. run Softick PPP.
6. enable IRDA interface support in 'Settings->Options'
7. go to it's 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial' to check if it includes a connection such as 'COM4 Device

Canon BJC 2000 question-1284 to usb


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} USB to Parallel conversion requires translation by XP and Vista's 'hardware interleave' software as well as the USB device manufacturers driver. The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
TIPS:
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.

I had the same problem. I went to my Device Manager and checked the port setting for my cable. I reset the port in advanced properties and I was then able to do a transfer. I still have a yellow flag on my cable and get the error 10 but for some reason it did the transfer???

Serial port


there used to be serial-to-USB converters available... Perhaps you can get one of those. Then you could try top setup your IrDA device (InfraRed, if you have one) for your ActiveSync Connecttion.
