    Hi,

    I've got a T68i and the USB data cable from Mobile Action (I think it's
    coded MA-8910). I'm trying to sync with Outlook but the Mobile Phone Monitor
    software refuses to detect that the phone is connected. I'm running XP Pro,
    the computer detects the USB cable OK and is currently set to COM4. I've
    enabled that port in the Phone Monitor software, tried reserving it as well.
    It never detects the phone. I got it to work once by reinstalling all the
    software - it connected and sync'd once, then never worked again. I didn't
    change any of the settings in the meantime.

    This is driving me nuts. I've even tried different USB cable drivers from
    other manufacturers without success. Any ideas?

    Thanks for any help,

    Chris.

    My cable (original S/// DCU-10) and my SW (XPhome) for some reason
    wanted COM5. Maybe try it with this.

    Thanks for the idea, but no success.
    Does anyone know what port settings I should use (for baud rate, data bits,
    parity, etc.)?

    Chris.

    Good idea, I've been thinking about buying one.. only thing I'm not sure
    about is what one to get. Do they all work OK? I keep seeing MSI ones that
    are called PC2PC or something, I guess I need one that emulates a serial
    port but I can't seem to find enough information on the adaptors to know if
    they provide that functionality or not. I don't really wanna spend much more
    than £20 on one.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    in phone monitor try
    COM1 Enable No Reserved
    COM2 Enable No Reserved
    All other disable No Reserved

    in USB cable set COM 9 or 10
    hope that'll work

    All Bluetooth adapters based on the Widcomm stack support the Serial port
    profile. Eg. TDK, MSI... I'm sure other's do to but I can 100% confirm these
    do.

    I have an MSI PC2PC USM adapter and it's very nice....

    Hi,

    I set the USB cable to use COM 9 - enabled in Mobile Phone Monitor.. works a
    treat now! Thanks!
