I've been recently having problems with connecting my phone and bluetooth on the computer. Once upon a time I had no problems but the last few days are getting on my nerves, its saying that no devices are found. I can send via bluetooth, mobile to mobile no problem but cant on my computer. I hope I am explaining myself properly, any feedback would be greatly appreciated thank you.

If you're computer is XP, you still need to click "Receive Files" menu over that tiny blue Bluetooth systray icon. Or find it in the Control Panel.

i have a motorola v557 cell phone, and a bluetooth es - 388 dongle. im trying to use the
dongle on a win2k sp4 machine.

problem 1 - usb port doesnt power the dongle.
problem 2 - installation cd starts installation
in an unrecognizable language. a simple load box
with questionmarks as it unloads the .cab files etc. looks like this -????.cab although it loads the software, i dont get the screen to assign a computer to use it. it just finishes its install and theres a bluetooth icon on my desktop.
problem 3 - no bluetooth device found, well, i kina guessed that since usb isnt powering it on for some reason, when any other usb device is usable and working, like my mouse for instance.

could this be a problem with win2k or the dongle? or both?

i've had the same problem. i'm not sure if this will fix your problem, but I actually just bought a different bluetooth dongle. after plugging the dongle into my usb port of my computer, i was able to create that connection between my pc and my cell phone. im not sure what exactly caused the problem but im guessing it was the bluetooth dongle. i got the jabra bluetooh usb dongle, seen here:

I had the same problem. I thought it was 4 '0's. In fact what I did was to make a randon alfanumeric one which worked!! First I put this new code when prompted on the computer and then typed the same new code on my phone, again when prompted. It worked and then coneccted immediately. good luck

If the CRC value doesn't match the encoded value in the installer, the file is corrupt. You must get another copy of the software.

Usually the last four digits of your cell phone number works
