I have a bluetooth dongle. problem is i can only send files from my mobile phone (bluetooth enabled) to my pc and not vice versa. the bluetooth dongle (connected to my pc) can't search for other bluetooth...
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.
