I have a Motorola KRZR phone which I paired with my pc. I am using IOGear's Bluetooth Adapter and driver. Here's what I see: My BT Places on the desktop gives me Motorola Phone OBEX Push Transfer, Motorola Phone OBEX File Transfer and Motorola Phone Handsfree Voice Gateway. I really just wanted to be able to send pics and music from phone to pc and vice versa. So when I double click on File Transfer from that folder, I get an error message "FTP service not found on target device". On my phone I see my pc's name listed as connected. On the phone I can pull up the device profiles list for that pc and I get headset, hands free and object push profiles. Under "My Bluetooth Places\My Device" I see Audio Gateway, BT serial port, BT imaging, File Transfer, Network Access, PIM Item transfer, Headset and PIM synchronization all listed as auto startup. Only Fax and Dialup Networking are manual. If I click on BT imaging for example I see the connection status as Not Connected.

Doesn't make sense to me how the phone says I am connected while the pc thinks I am not. The BT icon in the task tray is green instead of white which I take to mean I am connected. So there's my question. Anyone tell me what settings I need to change to fix this connection? I am on Win XP SP2, Zonealarm firewall- which btw I have a BT LAN access server driver- packet scheduler miniport with IP address of zeroes in a "trusted" zone now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm certain the problem is between the chair and the keyboard, but I'm lost on where to go from here.

Thank you

Some additional information: It appears that IOGear uses Broadcomm/Widcomm driver i.e. Broacomm 2045 BT 2.0 USB Device in Device manager. Properties read version

Not sure if that means anything...

It appears at least the the Broadcomm driver is in control and not the Microsoft one as far as I can tell.

The FTP service would show you a file manager style. If the phone supports only OBEX File Transfer then you will only be able to send files, not browse the device. To send files you select the file on your PC, right-click and select Send To | Bluetooth. Then select your phone and it should transfer.

Same thing on your phone - you will have to select a file and find an option "Beam" or "Send".
