How to transfer files between your phone and your computer

Instructional steps
  1. Plug the bluetooth dongle into your computer or if your computer is equipped with an internal module, activate it (this is sometimes accomplished by a switch on the side of your notebook computer).

    Some bluetooth dongles will be automatically recognized and windows will automatically install the drivers for you; however some devices may require the drivers be installed manually.

    Now you'll need to activate bluetooth discovery on your computer. This step may be different depending 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".
Activate and configure bluetooth on your cell phone. Setupwill be different depending upon the brand of your phone. You will need torefer to the owners manual of your particular phone for specifics but I willcover general 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 mind thatother bluetooth users can see this name) this is the name that will identifyyour phone when you or others are searching for nearby bluetooth devices.

* Set your bluetooth visibility. This should be set to "shown to all"or "visible". You may wish to turn this feature off when you are notutilizing bluetooth.
Now you'll need to pair your phone and your PC. This can bedone from either the phone or the PC.

From the PC (Windows XP):

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

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

* The Add Bluetooth Device Wizard appears, select "My device is setup andready 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 ownpasskey", enter a passkey of your choosing (I like to use 0000 for easebut windows recommends an 8-16 digit passkey). Click Next.

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

* If you are prompted to accept a connection request from your computer, selectYes.
Now that your phone is paired with your computer, you arenow ready to begin 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 transfer from abluetooth 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 themalong with already paired devices.

* Select your computer from the list of devices.

* The data file will transfer over to the computer and windows will prompt youto enter a file name and choose a location to save the file to.

I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook and my wireless mouse does not work? Any suggestions? I have tried rebooting but the wireless mouse still does not work.

If your wireless mouse is bluetooth, you have to make sure that your Aspire One is bluetooth enabled. The older ones are NOT, but the newer Aspire Ones are.

Bluetooth device not found

Acer currently maintain a wide variety of models of notebook computer in the current range, and for any given range of notebooks the onboard options may vary but, the case remains constant across the range for each series of notebook. This means that some machines will have case buttons that lack functionality. The most common of these are the Bluetooth and Wireless LAN toggles on the front of many of the cases. You may have the button but the device isn't there, it is only on the more expensive models. Easily fixed by getting a USB Bluetooth adaptor

Bluetooth device driver is installed but doesn't recognized

From device manager, right click on the bluetooth device, and select uninstall. Then go the hardware manufactures website and download the bluetooth drivers for your product. Install/reinstall the drivers, then go to your control panel, and scan for hardware changes. It should detect the device, and want to install with the new/refreshed drivers you loaded.

How do i activate blutooth on my acer aspire 6930?

Have you looked to see if there is a bluetooth software bundle that came with your computer? If there is it should be as easy as finding the program on your computer that runs the software. Once you locate the program you'll have to setup the software with your bluetooth device. If you do not have a bluetooth device, setup will not work as it needs the device to automatically sync with your computer.
