Hello to all.

Please forgive me if this has been covered but I have looked back to page 23 onthis forum and cannot find a definative answer.

My son bought himself a Motorola E550 clam phone for his birthday and for christmas we got him a Belkin bluetooth dongle to transfer his pictures.

I have installed the dongle as detailed on the user set up manual which came with the dongle.
The dongle works perfectly in that both the pc (Win Xp pro) and the phone can see each other.

The problem occurs when trying to send the photo's from the phone to the pc, the bluetooth reports that the connection is busy. This message appears on the phone screen and we cannot understand why.

We have no other bluetooth devices in the house, the only connection visible on both items are just the same two items.

I throw myself on the knowledge of the forum to help us get his pictures from the phone to the great outside world

Welcome to Geekzone... Do you know if the phone is trying to transfer images using the Basic Image Profile (BIP) instead of File Transfer? Not all software on PCs are compatible with BIP.

If using the File Transfer, check on the PC that the Folder receiving the file has got permissions for your user (if you are not running as Administrator).

Also, if the phone does not support File Transfer (some don't) then you might need a third party software...
