Try 0000 or 1234 - these are common default bluetooth connection codes.

A passkey is a method of protection of your devices from unauthorized access. It is a code or key of your choice that you enter on the device that you are connecting to, and then enter it on the device that you are trying to connect with. When the passwords/codes/keys match up, the devices connect.

When it asks for the passkey for the first time, enter whatever you like as long as you can remember it (note it down if you have to). After that the other device will ask for the passkey, once you enter the exact same passkey on that, you should have a connection between the two devices and you can transfer whatever you like between them. Good Luck!

Hi, My Samsung mobile is GT-C3303. I have problems in connecting to the bluetooth device on my laptop machine to transfer the music files. I have tried both 0000 and 9999 and 1234 but nothing is helping...


you have to pair your samsung phone to your laptop first before you can start sending and receiving files through bluetooth.
an option is, turn the bluetooth on your laptop on, then the bluetooth of your mobile phone on. on your phone, search for devices, then once you see the name of the bluetooth device of your laptop, tap it then choose connect or pair, you will be asked for a passkey (you can input anything try 0) or in some devices wait until a pop screen appears which will contain the passkey usually 5 to 6 digits. then click ok
another option is (i tried this using my samsung corby wifi and a samsung n150 laptop and it works just fine) make sure that the bluetooth on your laptop and phorne is turned on. on your laptop click on the bluetooth icon or click the file you want to send, then right click, then choose send to bluetooth, your laptop will then search for available devices, just choose your mobile phone then automatically there is a popscreen which has a passkey, then click ok. on your phone you will be asked to allow to connect thru the laptop, just click ok, then make sure that the passkey matches between your phone and laptop. (usually it is automatic, you just need to click ok) you should be able to send and receive files thru bluetooth on your phone and laptop

How to Connect a Phone Using Bluetooth With a Laptop

By using Bluetooth technology, you can send files from your phone to your PC without the use of wires, SD cards or memory sticks. Many newer laptops have Bluetooth connectivity, but some models do not. You can make these laptops Bluetooth-enabled with the use of an external Bluetooth device called a Bluetooth dongle. This is a USB stick used to enable Bluetooth on your laptop, as long as it's plugged in.

Instructions


Pairing the Devices


Switch your laptop and cell phone on.

Go to your phone's main menu and enable Bluetooth. Depending on the model of your cell phone, your Bluetooth options may be listed under connections, settings, tools or extras.


Insert the Bluetooth Dongle into the USB port on your laptop. A dialogue bubble will pop up once your computer recognizes the device. Do not close this dialogue bubble until the device has been fully installed. Once it has, you will see the words "Installation Complete."


Go to the Start menu, then select "Control Panel." From here, open up "Network in Internet."


Choose "Set up a Bluetooth-enabled device," then click "Add." After this, select "My device is set up and ready to be found."


Find the name of your phone and click "Next." At this time, you will be asked to give a passkey. The passkey will have been supplied by the manufacturer of your Bluetooth dongle. Enter this same passkey on your cell phone. (You can use the Default code which 0000)


File Sharing

Right-click the file on your computer that you want to send to your phone.

Select "Send To" and then select "Bluetooth Device." A box will pop up asking you to select the name of the device from the list provided. From here, you will select the name of your cell phone.

Click "Next" or "Continue." The file will begin to transfer.

Accept the file transfer on your cell phone.


Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya...

How can i transfer pictures and videos from htc hero to computor


You'll learn how to transfer file (music, photos, videos, ring tones, documents, etc between your computer and your mobile phone.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • A bluetooth enabled cell phone.
  • A computer with either a built in bluetooth module or an external bluetooth dongle.
  1. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/4f/q0/phone-computer-using-blue-tooth-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Bluetooth Dongle

    Ifyour computer does not come equipped with a built in bluetooth module,you'll need to purchase a bluetooth dongle. These can be picked uponline or in a retail store and average between $10 and $30.

  2. Plugthe bluetooth dongle into your computer or if your computer is equippedwith an internal module, activate it (this is sometimes accomplished bya switch on the side of your notebook computer).

    Some bluetoothdongles will be automatically recognized and windows will automaticallyinstall the drivers for you; however some devices may require thedrivers be installed manually.

    Now you'll need to activatebluetooth discovery on your computer. This step may be differentdepending on the drivers used but should be similar to the following.

    * Look for the bluetooth icon in the windows system tray.

    * Right-click this icon and select open bluetooth settings.

    * Click on the Options tab and select "Turn discovery on".

  3. Activateand configure bluetooth on your cell phone. Setup will be differentdepending upon the brand of your phone. You will need to refer to theowners manual of your particular phone for specifics but I will covergeneral guidelines.

    * Locate the bluetooth settings menu in your phone.

    * Turn bluetooth ON.

    *Give your phone a name (you can use anything you like, but keep in mindthat other bluetooth users can see this name) this is the name thatwill identify your phone when you or others are searching for nearbybluetooth devices.

    * Set your bluetooth visibility. This shouldbe set to "shown to all" or "visible". You may wish to turn thisfeature off when you are not utilizing bluetooth.

  4. Now you'll need to pair your phone and your PC. This can be done from either the phone or the PC.

    From the PC (Windows XP):

    * Right click on the bluetooth icon in the system tray and select open bluetooth settings.

    * At the bottom of the devices tab, select "Add"

    * The Add Bluetooth Device Wizard appears, select "My device is setup and ready to be found" and click the Next button.

    * The wizard should find your device, if it doesn't, refer back to step three.

    * Select your device and click Next.

    *When prompted about a passkey, choose "Let me choose my own passkey",enter a passkey of your choosing (I like to use 0000 for ease butwindows recommends an 8-16 digit passkey). Click Next.

    * At thispoint the computer will attempt to connect to the phone via bluetoothand if successful your phone will prompt you for a passkey. Enter thesame passkey you entered into the computer and press OK.

    * If you are prompted to accept a connection request from your computer, select Yes.

  5. Nowthat your phone is paired with your computer, you are now ready tobegin transferring files. We will use a picture for this example.

    *Right click on the bluetooth icon in the Windows system tray and selectreceive a file. This lets your computer know to expect a file transferfrom a bluetooth device.

    * Again all phone models are different so this next step will vary.
    Locate an image file on your cell phone and select send - via bluetooth.

    * The phone will then search for bluetooth devices in range and display them along with already paired devices.

    * Select your computer from the list of devices.

    *The data file will transfer over to the computer and windows willprompt you to enter a file name and choose a location to save the fileto.

    * Thats it!!!

Tips & Warnings
  • Allmobile phones are different and some bluetooth drivers are different.Refer to your phone's owners manual for specific phone settings.
  • It is sometimes a good idea to turn off bluetooth on your phone when in crowded areas for security reasons

Aspire 3000 laptop


Normally you setup a passkey or use 0000 or 9999 as a passkey.

The question is, does that pop up when you try to connect a USB device? Do you get that when you try to install the dongle? (That shouldn't happen). If you are trying to connect a PDA or cell phone, you setup the passkey for the connecting device on the computer then type it in to the PDA or mobile phone. If you are trying to connect a bluetooth headset, then you use whatever code is from the manufactorer. Normally this is 0000 or 9999.

Hope this helps!
