I have a O2 mini and have been set up to perform Activesync using BT
connection. I tried to beam the file to pc in File Explorer without
success. The O2 mini detected the pc but it fails after I tab "Tab to
send". Can someone advise the possible cause and fix.

Thanks,

Ray

I've seen this on devices based on Microsoft stack, like the O2 mini/i-mate
Jam. It could also be that your PC is not configured to automatically accept
file, or it requires an encrypted connection (which may cause problems with
the software waiting for PIN if not paired), or Bluetooth Exchange Folder
does not exist, or the user logged on your computer does not have right to
write on the Bluetooth Exchange Folder. Or a firewall blocking the Bluetooth
software.

As you see, lots of things, try one at a time...

Mauricio,

Many thanks for your advice. I have tried the following.

1. My pc is using IVT BlueSoleil v1.4.9.5 utility. File Transfer service
is enabled in the Service Properties.

2. Share folder is D:\My Documents\Bluetooth\share and exists in my pc. I
cannot find the same on my O2 due to the fact that the BT menus do not tell
and do not know where it is on O2 mini.

3. The share permissions on pc are read and write. I logon the pc as
administrator so I should have right to write files. I am successful to
sync the data including files via ActiveSync using USB and BT connection. I
am unsure if it proves I have got the right to do so. There is so such
setting in O2 mini.

4. On O2 mini, "Receive all incoming beams." has been enabled in Bean icon
of Connections tab in Setting. However, I cannot find the same thing on pc.

5. While pairing, both pc and O2 are required to enter a passkey, I always
do it without any issue. As I use it at work and at home almost everyday,
BT seems a very stupid design and requires pairing again once I change the
use of pc.

I am at loss what I should do next and seeking further advice.

Thanks,

Ray

It seems like all is ok in your configuration then. FYI I've had the same
problems with other Pocket PC using the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.

Would it be the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack on Windows Mobile 2003SE again?
The one on Windows XP SP2 proves a rubbish and most of users have given up
and installed Widcomm or BlueSoleil. However, I seldom heard about the
change of Bluetooth Stack on pocket pc. Why not? I believe the suppliers
of BT stereo earphones may be the first one to promote the change if
Microsoft OS still fails to respond this request fast enough.
