Re: Files from my phone to acer laptop
Most acer laptops have the bluetooth front button but very few have it installed.
No device means yours is not bluetooth enabled and you will have to purchase a usb bluetooth adapter, class 1 being a 10 metre distance connection, class 2 being a 30 metre connection distance.

Your computer doesn't have a Bluetooth device installed, usually its installed with the wifi card or its a PCMCIA card, and its doesn't work unless you get one, why did they put that switch there, I'll never know.
Am having problem with my laptop acer extensa empowering 5420-5687, the problem lies on it's bluetooth I search for the infra-red and found it but the bluetooth can't be find. could you please help find this out.
could be that your acer aspire 3680 actually doesn't have bluetooth. they use a standard case for most of there laptops. it has the button for bluetooth but it doesn't have the actual bluetooth card or required hardware.
go to acer, click on america, click on drivers & downloads, product line = notebook, product = aspire 3680... you will want to download the audio driver if using xp or the realtek hi def audio driver if using vista.
as far as the mkv support, VLC (video lan player) supports matroska pretty well, you can also download the CCCP playback pack of codecs to support mkv in pretty much any directshow player (media player, media player classic, winamp, etc)
