Hi

I post under the "smart mobile" banner with hesitation. I've bought this on pre pay for sons birthday. Decent looking phone - complex enough for an 11 year old. Found some java games online and connected upto the PC using datacable to transfer them over.

Where the hell do I copy the games to ? The games folder is not accessible under the USB mass storage setup and everything else is music or photos. I cant also see the micro sim storage card I inserted under this setup.

I believe I can also download directly to phone but given the browser is GPRS and his top up card runs out fast I thought I could transfer the games through a data cable from the pc?  Or am i wrong?

Thx for any pointers.

Ged

Is the storage 'mounted'? Often it requires something to be permitted on the phone before the storage is accesible via USB.

Otherwise try creating a Games folder alongside the Music and Video ones.

Or just try copying the games anywhere and then see if you can find them on the phone - you can't do too much damage :-)

Hi have you simply tired creating a Games folder (with the exact same folder name as the phone games folder on the SD card and throw them in there.

To get the music onto the SD card I had to create a folder with the same name as on the phone for music "My Music" as I remember and it just picked up all the .mp3 and .mp4 files without a hitch, but previous to that when I created a folder labled just "Music" it did not pick them up, so give that a go.

I got one of these for my wife as her old nokia 1100 died, she likes the keyboard, all she ever uses is txt and receiving calls from me as bestbuddy.
