Check to see if the computer even has a serial port, most today dont have them and use USB instead. if this is the case, contact the receiver company to see if the have a usb version of the connection cable and software and download it and the manual for it. check to see if it needs a special cable as well while on the site. it might not need a special cable but it disent hurt to make sure.

How to transfer music to N70 without using a card reader or bluetooth ? my card reader is missing ..


Good Day,
Transferring file to a PC from an N70 phone, can be done in three ways
1: via Bluetooth 2: via memory card (by the use of memory card reader) 3: via Nokia PC Suite using standard N70 (DKU-2) Cable chiefmecha_4.jpg

I guess you are left the last option, which is I am sure you have a cable for your phone. Because it is included in the box when you bought the phone.
But before you can actually connect your phone to your PC, even if you have the cable, you must install Nokia PC Suite first. Just go here and download the software. http://nds1.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/software/Nokia_PC_Suite_eng_web.exe
After installing you can go and connect the cable to your N70 phone and connect to a USB port on your PC. The phone may ask you on its screen to choose what kind of connectivity you want, if you want to just transfer files, you may just choose Disk option or removable disk access, and access its MMC via the windows explorer just like a card reader.
Hope this helps you. Thank you for using Fixya.

Hi,

Make sure that the USB drivers for the systems are actually loaded and you are not running on the Default Windows drivers. To check this one out you'll need to look in Device Manager to see if there are any Listed USB Ports shown as not working or needing an updated driver.

With these propriety systems they quite often do not always install the correct drivers for USB and LAN ports and this can cause quite a few problems.

Activation of keys on an FTAS receivers


Hi,

Your query > "Instructions on how to install new keys and activate an FTA receiver using a 2GB Cruzer Micro Flash Drive with 3 smarth technology"

Generic responses:
1. depending on your FTA receiver (brand/model/version) (BlackBird, MultiStar, UltraStar, Pansat, Digiwave, Viewsat, Coolsat, Fortec, Ariza, Twinhan... or even clones) you would need to download the appropriate firmware/satellite keys using your PC & Internet connection;
2. links to firmware/satellite keys maybe available from your FTA receiver manufacturer's website or forums such as HashHU FTA
3. in your PC, unzip the downloaded firmware/satellite keys to a temporary folder;

If you are using a stand-alone hardware FTA box:
a. plug in your 2GB Cruzer Micro Flash Drive to one of your PC's USB port;
b. copy/paste the unzipped files in the root directory of the Flash Drive. Verify that you have the .bin or .pmg of whatever your FTA box is using;
c. remove flash drive from PC's USB port and insert into the USB port of the FTA receiver;
d. on the FTA box, using your remote, go to Menu, Settings or Sytem Information, keys, firmware or receiver Upgrade, select USB, select Flash, Save, Activate or Upgrade;
e. wait until the FTA box has uploaded to itself the new firmware/satellite keys;
f. reboot (power on/off).

If you are using PC-based FTA satellite receiver:
i. run your FTA receiver program;
ii. select for Tools/Options/Upgrade or Update;
iii. browse/direct to search in your temporary folder where downloaded files were unzipped;
iv. once found, click OK/Update/Upgrade;
v. in some brand/model/version, there is an auto upgrade/update feature which will download appropriate firmware/satellite keys if you are online.

Hope that the this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

You can use a PC suite for transfer..


How to Use Nokia PC Suite

Those who own Nokia cell phones are lucky enough not to have to deal with the dreaded plea for a call from all their friends and associates, due to the fact that they have lost their cell phone and all the numbers associated with it. Using Nokia PC Suite software, you can backup all your contacts, photos, text messages, video files, music files, and all other content on your cell phone using any PC computer. The software is available for download from the Nokia website, and any Nokia cell phone equipped with a mini-USB port can use the Nokia PC Suite software.


Things You'll Need:

* Nokia cell phone with mini-USB port
* Nokia PC Suite software, downloadable from Nokia.com or packaged with your cell phone
* Mini-USB to USB cable
* Micro SD Card, included with your Nokia phone or purchased separately
* Optional: Bluetooth-equipped laptop
* Windows XP or Vista software


Instruction



Make sure the Nokia phone you own, or are thinking of purchasing, is equipped with a mini-USB port. Nearly all new Nokia handsets have a port, and many of the older high-end Nokia phones do as well. You will need a mini-USB cable, which should come with your phone.


Go to (for North American Nokia phones) to download the Nokia PC Suite software. You will need a Windows 2000 or greater machine for the software to work. Click the link to download, and then install the software on your PC. Everything you need will be installed onto your hard drive.


Plug in the small end of the mini-USB to USB cable into your phone, and the larger end into your PC. The Nokia PC Suite software, if properly installed, will come up with a dialog box recognizing your phone.

Look on your Nokia cell phone's screen, which will now recognize that the handset is plugged into a PC with Nokia PC Suite software installed. The phone will give you two options: Data Transfer mode and Nokia mode.

Choose Data Transfer mode if you just need to transfer files from your Nokia handset to your PC via Nokia PC software. This will cause your PC to bring up a folder with the contents of your cell phone's internal memory, and/or one for the contents of the micro SD card plugged into your Nokia cell phone, if it has one installed. This will allow you to drag and drop files from your cell phone onto any folder on your Windows machine, or vice versa. The advantage of this is you can install programs you have downloaded off the internet, easily transfer music tracks onto your phone, or any number of other functions.


Pick Nokia Mode if you want to take full advantage of the features your Nokia PC Suite software allows. This will bring up a graphical user interface that allows you to do a variety of things with the click of a button.


Click the "Backup Phone" option to bring up a dialog box that will allow you to, all at once, backup the address book, images, video files, music files, programs, text and MMS messages, and anything else you have on your Nokia handset all at once. This feature becomes extremely useful should you ever break, lose or otherwise destroy your phone. As long as you purchase another Nokia model, you can instantly transfer your entire contacts list and other information onto your new phone.


Take some time to look around at the other different modes Nokia PC Suite software offers the user. You can transfer music files using a dedicated window, where they will be instantly integrated into your cell phone's onboard music player. You can also install programs, through ".jad" and ".jar" files. This will avoid the headaches of having to download software on your cell phone, where any number of security breaches can happen.


Use Nokia PC Suite software to use your phone as a modem to "tether" your laptop to the internet as well. If you have a data plan through your cell phone provider, Nokia PC Suite software will allow you to use an EDGE or 3G connection to connect your laptop to the internet anywhere you have cell phone service. Nokia PC Suite software has any number of other useful features to increase the fun and productivity of your Nokia handset beyond the scope of what you thought a phone could accomplish.

You can download the PC suite from the link below::
