I have a TDK Bluetooth PCMCIA card installed on my Sony Vai Laptop, running WinXPhome SP1. Card works ok, I can set up partnerships with both my Ipaq and my Nokia 6210I phone, using the Bluetooth manager software that came with the TDK Card.

Problem comes when I try to make a connection to my phone using the Nokia datasuite software. I use the bluetooth button but get an error message (some error code cannot remember what). The phone will not connect.

I have tried deleting the pairing with the TDK software and getting the Nokia to do this, no luck!

Is there a problem with the datasuite?, I downloaded version 4.81 from Nokia. Does the datasuite not work with PC card adaptor, did I miss some setting in the install, although it said it would automatically detect and set the connections.

Please help

Thanx in advance

You have to configure the PC Suite to expect connections on the Incoming Bluetooth COM (also known as Local Service). I the 6210i is like other Nokia phones, you should initiate the connection from your computer and you'll see an error message. The phone will disconnect and then try connecting back to your computer. It's like a wake-up call to the phone, which in turn "call back" the computer.

Also, check that you don't have a personal firewall blocking communications, since some parts of the Bluetooth stack will use some local ports to communicate between them.
