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.

When I try to transfer pics to my laptop from LG K10, (plugged in w/ USB cable), my puter says it doesn't "see" any pics .. but my phone is charging, so the connection is good. What am I missing?


read this it explains cable transfer
https://www.att.com/devicehowto/tutorial.html#!/interactive/id/interactive_1500013405?make=LG&model=LGK425

in lg phones and what setting you are missing !

another method you may have not thought of
does the computer have bluetooth and the lg have bluetooth.
pair the two together with bluetooth and then in the lg go to file explorer and select files then select share - via bluetooth
on the computer you need to activate from bluetooth to receive files.

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.

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.
