Bluetooth used to work perfectly. Straight from the box - it was some time before I even noticed the icon on the task bar. Then one day Nokia PC Suite stopped working.
My mobile phone connects to my sister's mobile, both ways.
My computer will transfer files to my mobile but my phone won't transfer them to the computer. Error message says "connection failed" even though it's less than a metre away.
The mobile lists the computer as a paired device and the computer lists the mobile.
I've been through all the rigmarole for setting up and it's fine, but I didn't need to do that when I first used Bluetooth anyway.
When I go to Nokia PC Suite and click to connect a phone, I'm told there is no connection. A borrowed cable (correct one) didn't work either nor did a borrowed infra-red.
There's a fault on the computer? So I opened my piggy bank and got a new dongle, which didn't work. I took it to the store and they said it (the new one) was faulty. The replacement didn't work either. I put the original one back and found that I could transfer files one way (as I said earlier). Maybe the store has a bad batch of dongles? I'm not keen to get another from them yet.
I uninstalled Nokia PC Suite, using IOBit and clearing the registry, then re-installed. No result. I assume it contains the driver for Bluetooth?
Could it be my dongle (the old one) works one way only? If anyone there is ten times more geeky than me, I'd be so happy to get some help.
