Sony Bluetooth KBD Connection help

Question: Sony Bluetooth KBD Connection help

I bought an i& desktop with BT keyboard & mouse. I've recently begun to lose connectivity with the keyboard.

I also upgraded to a Samsung SSD and I mention that as it is the reason I removed a lot of bloatware. Long story short, I call Sony and they cant help naturally except to send a new keyboard. The instrucitons tell me to use a file on C named wconnect.exe to enable pairing of the new keyboard.

And it's one of the files I cleaned out and Sony cant help except to tell me to do a factory restore to get it. I dont have the three days it would take.

Can anyone make any suggestions that would help ? Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Sony Bluetooth KBD Connection help

That right there would be reason enough for me to never buy another product from them again.
Using a ridiculous proprietary connection system without allowing the software to be downloaded separately.

On that note does it work at all?
Have you tried changing your power options to always on? (may help keep connection alive)

Hi Satellite users,

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones. The symptom of the problem was that the "MDR-XB50BS" device didn't appear in the list of available devices on the Windows Activity Centre "Connect" screen, nor in the Windows Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth and other devices -> Add a device screen. Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

In neither instance does the Sony appear. Suggestion? Mark

My keyboard won't stay connected to the Bluetooth. Windows disabled the Bluetooth and gave this messge: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)." What is this and how do I fix it? I can't get my Logitech K810 keybaord to stay connected. It pairs, and works for awhile, then disconnests, even though it says it is connected. Driver update says the drivers in place are the right ones. I've also tried Bluetooth dongles to connect with, but I get the same problem -- connects for a while and then disconnects.

So I was having some serious issues with my Sony Vaio (VPCYB13KD Canada) so I decided to do the Sony version of a clean install. Basically it takes all the software from a partition and makes your computer run like it's 'factory fresh'.

It fixed all my issues but for some reason my bluetooth has completely vanished. Yes, I've tried downloading the drivers from the Sony site but for some reason they won't appear. It goes through the whole process and says it was successfully installed but in the program list it's not there.

Also, it is does not appear in the Device Manager list (unknown or otherwise) and there is no option to send files when right clicking them. It is as if the bluetooth component of my laptop has vanished! I'm completely sure it works as I was using it this morning. Some software has gone haywire and it's driving me nuts.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

After five months of use the keyboard space bar was notworking on one side, so I rang Sony up and they said to bring it in, they sentme a replacement keyboard and I followed the instructions to a tee as toconnecting it to my pc but to no avail.

· Typed in model number to download drivers forthe keyboard (just in case windows was lying to me) but its saying model is nolonger available (from Sony site – for both pc and keyboard)

· Checked to see that the blue tooth devices wherelisted on my computer as up till I sent the keyboard away all had been workingas regards to connection - nothing was listed there?

· Went to add a device (manually) this did notwork despite keyboard been detectable (according to instructions)

It is working OK and tested on both of my Sony Vaios although Sony has a warning not to upgrade to Windows 10 until they publish Windows 10 drivers in August or September. Check your Sony Vaio manager tool and there is a warning there on my systems that has a link to their Windows 10 page. Don't recall my model number, but they are i7 with 17" screens.

I recently purchased a Sony SRS-X11 Bluetooth speaker (recommended by Which Magazine).
I have not been able to find a Windows driver to connect this speaker to my operating system. Can any one help or have any suggestions.

I have purchased a Bluetooth dongle which appears to be working fine: the system recognises the speaker through the dongle but when I run the set up, the system says it is looking for software updates to complete the process but that is as far as it goes because I get an error message informing me that software can not be found. I have also contacted Sony and they can't help and told me to search online for a Windows driver.

Answer:Driver needed to run Sony Bluetooth speaker

The bluetooth "dongle" market is a very complicated one and is full of a lot of low quality products which are often not supported, you could, ( if you can discover the information because your hardware is from a major manufacturer ), try contacting the dongle manufacturer, but these are often small 3rd world or far east companies, that appear and disappear overnight. The additional software the dongle is looking for could easily be something from a long gone affiliate of the hardware manufacturer, as it was normal for these devices to use free libraries of functions, which are no longer available.

there is a company called BlueSoleil, the most easy-to-use, innovative and interoperable Bluetooth software, Bluetooth driver which is a major player in the blue tooth market (though not a driver only source) which my support your dongle though this may mean additional costs. best way would IMHO the return the dongle and purchase something from one of the major suppliers

Edit

The following is a list of the main chipset manufacturers for Bluetooth - if you can find out the name of the Chip in your device you may be able to obtain drivers direct from one of these companies although some do not deal direct with the public it may be worth a try ( search for the company support site as the links are email addresses of sales contacts)

At the moment I'm looking after a Sony VAIO VGN-SZ48GN with Windows Vista Business 32-bit preinstalled and am looking to in-place upgrade this to Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

Currently the machine has the Toshiba Bluetooth stack installed and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says that for some Bluetooth components it doesn't know if there is an update for Windows 7 and for others that there is a "free" update available from the manufacturer ("Toshiba").

However I know that updates from Toshiba are free only for Toshiba laptops and Sony has no sight of a Windows 7 driver anywhere. I think based on the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor that I have version 5.0 of the Toshiba Bluetooth stack currently installed.

Does anyone have any experience upgrading these VAIO machines to Windows 7? Will Bluetooth work seamlessly after an upgrade or is there more to it?

Bluetooth is the only reason that I'm wary of upgrading to Windows 7, otherwise the upgrade advisor gives a completely clean bill of health.

Any thoughts based on real experience appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:sony vaio's built in bluetooth not working with windows 7

Hello roxiedg and welcome to Seven Forums.

Before trying to add a bluetooth device in windows 7 there are a couple of things you need to do.

- Make sure that wireless is enabled on the laptop (my Sony has a switch on the front). Bluetooth is wireless and, typically, when that switch is turned off, all wireless is turned off as well including 802.11a/b/g/n and also Bluetooth.
- Make sure that any proprietary software you have that controls power or wireless function has Bluetooth enabled.
- You may also need to update the bluetooth driver for whatever device you're trying to install. I'd suggest the device manufacturer's web site.

Hi,

I really had not this 'Bluetooth connection' before.
But, I really don't know that pairing my Nokia Bluetooth with my HP Laptop Bluetooth would add this Bluetooth connection or NOT.
I really guess this Bluetooth Connection was listed there when I connected my Lapotp Bluetooh with Nokia Bluetooth.
Thus, I will really not have any problems if I deleted it. But I am asking you what benefit of that Bluetooth Connection.
This is below was not here:

Finally Could please let me know how to use this Bluetooth Connection.(How to benefit from it)? I really use an ADSL Internet subscription, and not Dial-up connection. Also, I am connected wirelessly to a Modem-Router. Thus, what password and username should I type in the fields in the above screen shot?

Answer:'Bluetooth connection' is shown in my Network Connection suddnly.

Pairing a mobile phone will create such an entry and there's nothing to worry about. I don't think you can use it to go online since as you said you are using ADSL and if you want to go online via your modem with your phone just use the wifi connection

My daughter (who lives in London) recently purchased Sony SRS-BTM30 Bluetooth Wireless Speakers so that she could listen to MP3 music stored on her Sony Vaio N11H laptop (with Windows XP Home pre-installed). The problem is that all music/sound from the speakers is totally unrecognisable because it is 'stuttering' or 'hacking' so much (sorry I can't explain it in better terms...). A friend informed her that the problem is probably being caused by her BT Broadband Router/LAN connection. Can any member advise whether this might be what's causing the 'stuttering' sound? If not then can anyone please advise as to what might be the cause of the problem. I thought it might be the Belkin bluetooth adapter being slightly out of range, but my daughter informed me that she has tried using the speakers within a range of a few inches up to ~10m and it still makes no difference.... PLEASE HELP

P.S. My daughter also connects to the internet using an 802.11b/g wireless connection.

The Sony Vaio N11H laptop spec (from what I can recall) is as follows:

1.8GHz Dual Core Intel Processor
1GB Memory
160GB Hard Drive

I bought a Sony SRS-X7 Blutooth speaker to get rid of the cables.The device works perfectly with several other devices: iphone, blackberry, an Asus tablet, but i havn't been able to make it work with my laptop.I was able to add the device. Was founded and recogniced by the laptop, but when almost finishing the process appears a message "Configuring bluetooth services" and stays there. I've tried to wait, even from one day to another, and the message remains there.After forcing to close this message window, the speakers figure between the bluetooth devices, but when trying to connect an "error establishing connection" message appears.I've tried to install the other driver available on the support site (an intel, this one is a Broadcom) with no results.Appreciate your help, as i'm seriusly thinking (don't want to) on replace the laptop. Best regards.

for anyone unfamiliar with sony's new handheld, you can upload images/movies/music to the device's memory stick via a usb connection to your pc.

the cable used is a 5-pin mini-usb (regular usb on one end, mini on the other). once the memory stick is formatted (via the psp), the pc should recognize the psp as a "removable drive". however, my pc refuses to recognize the device.

i'm at a loss here. would updating my usb drivers help at all? perhaps the usb cord is not the right kind?

i appreciate any help/advice...

I have a Sony bra via tv with Internet access through a Ethernet port. Due to it's distance from my wifi router I was wondering if I could use some sort of bridge between the router and tv? Ie something that picks up the routers signal and sends it through a Ethernet cable to the tv. I also have an old net gear router if I could use that.My router is a home hub 2.1

1. Just bought a Sony VAIO TT series and was trying to get logged on to the MacDonalds (Cloud?) wifi. It took ages to go through the leaflet they provide and then I got the message network not available. I had to do all the steps manually there was no "wizard" or automatic connection. First time I've ever tried this.

When entering a wifi hotspot should the wireless network appear in Manage Wireless Networks? This certainly didn't happen in MacDonalds. My wireless switch on the laptop is turned to "on" but how do I know if it's working. It seems ridiculously difficult to find a wifi connection. Am I doing something wrong? Does each hotspot need this complicated manual configuration?

The laptop works fine at home with a router and i also have a broadband "3" mobile dongle which connects fine.

2. Also getting message "Windows Media Player has stopped working". Why? How can I fix this.

The laptop is brand new by the way.

Any help much appreciated. Advice in idiot format please for a non IT/PC beginner, thanks.

I currently have a problem with my Wi-Fi connection on my laptop. It will be working fine then suddenly wont find any connections! I then restart the laptop then it will work for a while then cut out again. Any help will be much appreciated, Thanks.

Answer:Sony Vaio Wi-Fi Connection problem

More info required please - What is the OS; have you Updated drivers or anything recently?
Possibly a simple visit to Device Manager would fix it.
First of all find the Wifi Network Adapter and uninstall it. Restart the laptop and let it reinstall the Adapter and see if this solves the issue.
If not then select the Adapter properties and update the Driver.
If still no good, visit the Sony Website and download the latest driver for your OS.

This is going to sound weird but its happening! My wife and I are avvid EQ2 (sony everquest 2) players. We have had no problems loading the game (it connects to the sony servers on loading) and their respective websites such as eq2players.com for years. Now all of a sudden for no reason last night both of us can no longer not only load the game but log into their website. We can access anything we type the browser and all other online games work and load fine. Sony's tech support had us run some logs and they said its not their fault. My ISP (charter.com) has NO IDEA what they are doing, we explained the problem and they were clueless... I have reset everything, double checked my router settings and notice nothing wrong.

How could something , one server out of millions, one game out of thousands all of a sudden at 10:30 pm one night completely stop working? Expecially their respective website ring?

We are completely lost, and have no idea whats going on, no one will help us and we are addicts to the game. If anyone knows how this is possible and what we can check or try we would both very much appreciate it!

Thank you so very much!

to Sony Bravia LCD 32'
Helloall,

Before going out to buy cables for doing the above, I've googled around as to what best options there are.
My laptop (which I want solely to watch downloaded films from w/o charging from room to room with a USB stick for my LG HDD/DVD recorder player or burning DVD all the time) I plan to put somewhere near my Sony LCD TFT TV, hook it up and
off I go. It has DVI output for Monitor etc. Sony has HDMI input and also
VGA 15 PIN sub. Since Laptop has DVI, I'm thinking of DVI-HDMI converted cable. Read so much abt. the problems this may cause that I'm not so sure. My desktop (next room) has only VGA output. Since it's in the next room I'd like to keep the monitor there functional aswell. Will using a VGA splitter cable (Y) cause any problems? (I'm prepared to walk next door to start a film, that's no prob) but don't know whether there'll be interference between the monitor and TV (or even on PC desktop). I know I'll have to connect up separate Audio cable, that's no prob, all facilities exist.

Last question for now (my name says all): Monitor used with desktop is connected via 15 PIN VGA but also has free DVI. Can I loop thru, i.e.
PC image output into montor via VGA and from there onward via DVI?
I think I already know the answer (NO!!!) but maybe, maybe, maybe.

Hello, this is my first post here and I hope someone can help me. I am having difficulty in connecting my Sony DCR PC9e camera to my computer with a firewire cable. I have installed a Belkin Hi speed USB 2.0 + Firewire 6-port PCI Card today and have been able to connect a USB cable to my digital stills camera. However it doesn't recognise my camcorder. I have tried to use Sony Vegas 5 and Ulead VideoStudio 9 to capture the footage but both say 'No Device Connected' or something similar. Unfortunately the camera was bought from Ebay with no software CD so I don't have the original software (Movie Shaker I believe). I have searched and found that Sony Vegas is the updated software and should recognise the capture device and camera.

I am running XP Service Pack 2 which should recognise and install the correct drivers for the card. When the camera is plugged in there is 'ping' like the USB connection. I am using the 6-4 pin firewire cable supplied with the card. Does anyone have any ideas? I could record the footage to analogue video through video in, but I bought a Mini DV camera with the purpose of creating DVDs on my computer!

Thanks in advance

Good Evening,

I have decided to connect my home PC up to my Sony Bravia ( model number in thread header ) so as to use it for watching movies. I had a number of issues to begin with but have managed to get it working so far. Mainly thanks to this great forum i may add.

What my problem is now is that when i power down my PC and then re boot it i dont get a picture. I get the initial screen when it boots up and runs the BIOS ( i think thats it ) but when it tries to run windows i get nothing.

What i have to do is boot up my PC connected to original monitor, let windows load then unplug monitor and plug into TV and it works from there. But i dont want to do this everytime i start my PC.

I have adjusted my video card resolution to 1024x768 @ 60 Hz which is the best running resolution for my TV.

I am running

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz, 2194 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

OS Name Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium

NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

Via VGA to Sony Bravia KDF-E50A12U

Can anyone provide some suggestions as to help my problem?

Thanks
**************UPDATED************

i downloaded the latest driver for my video card and i am now connected via DVI on my PC to VGA on my TV. I am also running at 72Hz now. The image quality is superb!! But i still have the problem that i have to boot on my standard PC monitor and then switch the cable to my TV. And it works!

I tried many variations of connecting, then turning on, different modes, etc. i tried changing the firewire port on my computer to another pci slot but it stayed the same. the computer does recognize my port and all the drivers are installed. I tried many different softwares for recording dv from a camera but nothing worked. when i connect it using a usb cable, it works but the image is not as clear as i want it.

I decided to share some of my recent blog post that are related to computers, as I normally blog about business related content. This seemed to be a very popular topic and I experienced the same issues so decided to play around a bit.

The problem I had can occur a few different ways:

1) I experienced that if I put the computer to sleep (close the lid) that when I went to wake it up, the wireless would act as if the switch was turned off, even though it was on.


2) I experienced that sometimes the computer just wouldn't recognize the wireless unless I rebooted a few times. Even then sometimes the wireless switch would show it was off.


3) I experienced that sometimes it would work perfectly fine when I first booted the computer, but then would lose connection after a period of time.


I believe that this issue is with the pre-installed software loaded by Sony. I read many blogs, tech sites, and articles about this but none of them seemed to work. Then I remembered that when I first got the laptop, I had disabled some of the pre-loaded crap that you get when purchase a computer from a store (that's for another blog entry though).


Solution:

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> double click "Vaio Control Center" -> hit ok at the UAC prompt (if there) -> expand the folder "network connections" -> click "Vaio Smart Network" -> click Open

Hello all,

Please be patient with me as my PC knowledge is limited. I will do my best to get all info in here.

I recently bought a Sony TRV-120 Digital 8 camcorder to transfer some old HI8 tapes to my pc for editing and then to burn to a dvd.

The bottom line issue i am having is that when i plug the camcorder into the 1394 port it does not show up in my computer and is not connecting so i am unable to capture my video.

I recently added the following port to my PC: "2 Port PCI Express 1394a FireWire Card" Part#PEX1394A2 from Startech. As far as i know it installed correctly. When i go to my device manager i see the following:

1394 Bus Host Controllers
> 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy)

Now, i thought i might have a bad 1394 cable. I do NOT have any other devices that i can plug in and test the connection. I did notice that when i connect my cable into the pc the DV IN appears on my camera display.....so apparently a connection is being made between the two.

I am just so frustrated as i just paid a couple hundred bones for the camera and 40 for the card. I don't mind investing some cash to get my old tapes transferred and backed up, but i just don't want to keep buying things that are incompatible.

Would you guys recommend that i skip trying to get this thing to connect to windows and just go with a SONY VRD-MC6 and just get the footage captured directly to a dvd and then import and edit from there??? Thanks for the help. I would... Read more

Answer:No WiFi connection between Sony Bravia TV and Netgear

I have moved to a thread of your own

Is this a TV that will not connect ? - as thats the post that you replied on
If so whats the make and model
if not - please provide full details of what equipment you have and what is not working

That ipconfig /all is showing a default gateway IP address of 0.0.0.0

IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
Firewall / security suite
DHCP Service not running.
Duplicate IP address on the network.
Bad NIC card drivers.
Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.

Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.

Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.

uninstall the adapter and restart PC - windows will re-install the drivers

My wife has owned a sony vaio laptop for about a year and a half. Until last week we've had zero problems with this computer. It's mainly used while she sits in front of the TV, where she works while she watches TV. So it's spent 95% of it's life connected to the brick.

Last week we noticed that the plug from the brick, which plugs into the back of the computer, was very hot. Almost too hot to touch. The brick was warm also. I repositioned the brick on the carpet and checked it a few minutes later and it seemed cooler. I've also paid more attention the temperature of the plug and it's gone from warm to hot to warm, probably depending on the charging cycle.

It also seems to me that the plug is easier to remove that it was originally and I'm wondering of there is a connection problem which is causing the heat issue.

Has anyone experienced this on their sony? What is my next step?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Hey guys!

Just recently purchased the Big Jambox, and I want to connect it via bluetooth. I connected it to my phone and Ipod, but it won't connect to my computer? I am trying to install drivers, but I just can't find the right one. I have an ASUS G55VW, and I can't connect to it! Thanks.

Answer:Bluetooth Connection

Are you sure the laptop has Bluetooth? It's listed as an option on the Asus website and if it came with Bluetooth you shouldn't need to install any drivers as it would have come with them already installed from Asus.

You may be able to get the optional Bluetooth module from Asus or Ebay or where ever but it would probably be easier and less expensive to get one of the little USB Bluetooth dongles like this: IOGEAR GBU521 Bluetooth 4.0 Micro Adapter - Newegg.com

I have successfully paired my windows 10 laptop with my Samsung sound bar, but cannot figure out how to direct the audio to the soundbar. The only device shown in the audio settings is the laptop's speakers and they are checked as the default output. Please tell me how to get the sound bar set as the default output device. Thx.

Answer:bluetooth connection

If you had looked in the W10 section you would have seen Bluetooth is an issue for for now. Once that is sorted you should be able to successfully pair.

Evening One and all, I purchased a cheap laptop at the weekend, and ran a network cable downstairs to it to enable internet/e-mail and lan connection, after a couple of initials problems (resolved here of course :-) )this worked well with full net access plus access to the shared files on the three desktops.Today, it seemed that the opportunity to purchase a bluetooth setup at a discount cost was too much to resist. The access point is a Belkin (no specific model number), and the laptop connection unit is a Belkin usb adaptor. After the initial install, I could access the net via a 'BluetoothNullConnection' modem in the dial-up settings of IE. This is stable enough, but at 115kbps is maybe a little slow as it has a 600k connection available - still it works.The problem is that I cannot access the other pc's on the lan. The standard local area connection quite rightly states that the cable is missing, as did a bluetooth lan adaptor which also appeared. After an uninstall/reinstall, I again have the net access, but still not the lan access - and now the bluetooth lan adaptor is not there either. Given that I can see the router at the 'far end' of the network, can someone suggest how to take this a step further and see the other pc's?If I run the network wizard, the bluetooth adaptor is not available to select as the required connection.The laptop is running xp home, and the pc's xp pro. Also, the desktops are connected via cable to the router (Linksys BEFSR41) as are the cable ... Read more

I have an original W 8.1 in a Lenovo x1 Carbon (64) and want to connect via Bluetooth to an updated 8 to 8.1 HP Envy (64). Both have Bluetooth. Although I can connect other devices (phone, speaker, etc.) I cannot connect the 2 PC's. I can get the name of the PC on the device screen and am asked to connect but then I get a notation showing a pass code and am asked to verify (yes - no) if this is the pass code shown on the other computers screen. I cannot find a pass code for the other computer and none is shown on the screen. Is there a way to connect the two computers?

Answer:Bluetooth connection PC to PC

Here is the step-by-step way to connect two laptops using Bluetooth.

Software and Hardware Requirements

In-built Bluetooth device on laptopBluetooth dongle (optional)Bluetooth drivers (optional)

Important - Since Bluetooth use short wave radio frequencies for data transfer, devices using radio waves should not be placed within 100 meter radius. Bluetooth signals weaken if the devices are placed more than 100 meters apart. Also before connecting the two laptops using Bluetooth, make sure that neither of the laptop is infected with any sort of virus or malicious program. They can easily get transferred from one laptop to another without your knowledge.

Step 1 ? Determine the Type of Bluetooth
The first step is to determine the type of Bluetooth device your laptop has. Refer user?s manual of your laptop to determine this. If it has inbuilt Bluetooth, proceed to step 3, else, proceed as follows:

Step 2 ? Install Bluetooth
Purchase a Bluetooth dongle from market (usually costs $10) and insert it in one of the USB ports. Windows XP or higher versions of Windows do not require any sort of driver installation, however, if it?s Windows 98, install the drivers. All types of Bluetooth also come bundled with control software, which should also be installed at this step.

Step 3 ? Switch on the Bluetooth
Switch on the Bluetooth of each laptop. A bright blue glowing light indicates that the Bluetooth has been switched on and ready for connectivity.

Step 4 ? Assign Status
Decide ... Read more

I am trying to sync my mobile phone(Nokia) with my pc. I have the software and installed it but on first installation was asked to select a connection type. I selected Infrared, but later found that bluetooth is better, so bought a bluetooth dongle instead. I have installed the bluetooth correctly, but on starting Nokia software, I only have the option of infrared for initial connection before I can run the program for the first time. I tried uninstalling then re-installing the software, but have since found out that the software stores a file in the computer to "remember" the first connection method I selected. Therefore, even after system restore followed by re-installing the software, it still asks for an infrared connection. Can someone please tell me how to delete this/these files so I can start afresh using bluetooth because I don't want to buy infrared hardware just to start the program so I can switch to bluetooth!
Can someone please help a very frustrated numpty?!?!
