You need to give more info, I'm afraid.

What type of phone do you have? What OS does it run? What kind of OS does your PC have? Did your adapter come with software? You say you can send files from your phone to your PC, but then you say that the PC doesn't the phone (?????!)

Since I don't have any clarification, here's some things you can try:

- Try shutting down and re-starting both your devices with the adapter still in. Try taking the adapater out, re-starting and then plugging the adapter in.

- Re-install or update the software for your adapter. If you decide to re-install, make sure you remove all th eold files completely. If it's plug and play, you can use device manager (assuming you have Windows) to find better software.

- Make sure your phone has the proper permissions set to receive files from your adapter. Since I do not know your phone model, try to google it.

- Try opening Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel. Click on Options and make sure you've enabled the PC to accept files from your mobile.

Bluetooth isn't two way automatic communication. Both devices that are using Bluetooth to communicate must individually have permissions set for the receiving of files from each device it connects to. You can send files all day long, but if the device youre sending to isnt set up to receive, it obviously won't work. Make sure you've enabled it in both the PC and the mobile.

Good luck.

Remote speakers don't work


Dear User,

Are you referring to playing music from another device (mobile phone) into the speakers of your laptop or vice versa?

Is yes then you must first switch on the Bluetooth on your laptop as well as mobile, if playing from phone you send to use the option play via Bluetooth in the phone, simultaneously accept the pop up options as yes on the PC to enable the wireless play.

If playing from PC to wireless speakers of mobile then right click on the on the bluetooth icon near the system date, select quick connect>> hand free audio/stereo audio/audio gateway as applicable>> find devices in range and select to play, also simultaneously accept any notifications if displayed on the phone.

I can't Install Java Games i my Samsung A767 ...Its always Says "Unsported Files"


hi i think u might have directly copied the games to ur phone's memory card via data cable doing so may result in the phone saying unsupported files but since ur phone is java supported and the games will work for sure u can install the games via bluetooth enabled laptop or even u can use a bluetooth dongle to install the games in ur mobile.To install the games in ur mobile via the dongle follow these steps:-
1.first plug in the bluetooth dongle in ur system and ur PC will detect it,as soon as it detects the device go to the START menu PROGRAMS ->ACCESSORIES->COMMUNICATIONS->BLUETOOTH TRANSFER WIZARD and click on the ur system bluetooth wizard
2.switch on ur mobile bluetooth and search for any paired device u will receive a prompt message as soon as ur system detects the mobile and will ask u to enter the password type the same password which the system will generate and ur mobile will be paired u can then select a game file and send it in ur mobile from the PC via the dongle as soon as the file is copied u will receive a message in the mobile to install it type yes and there u go the game will be installed.
u can also try using another phone switch on the bluetooth device of the other phone and copy the file in the targeted phone via the bluetooth .was this useful to u if yes pls do rate my solution and u can also send ur views via the testimonials thanx fr visiting fixya
with warm regards - bonefirediv.

Want to send picture from phone to computer


Can you not use bluetooth to send pictures from phone to computer. Search on your mobile phones menu to see if there is bluetooth and enable it. If your mobile is not bluetooth enabled, you may still be able to send pictures from phone to pc if there is a USB cable slot in the phone. To send to the pc via bluetooth, either your pc has been set up with bluetooth, or, if not, you have
to install bluetooth using a bluetooth dongle which comes with CDrom, and may be purchased from computer stores like Currys or online for £10-15. Let me know if you have bluetooth, and I'll help you more. Once there is Blue tooth it needs to be turned on, and discovery mode has to be enabled, (not disabled) in order to communicate with other nearby bluetooth enabled devices. Get back to me tell me what you found out, Good luck papertigers
