    Hey all

    No matter what I try I cannot seem to connect my 6600 to my PC through
    infared to use with Mobile Action handset manager.

    The USB infared device is installed properly and as soon as it detects the
    6600 it tries looking for a driver for it which I cannot find anywhere. It
    may be connected with with Nokia Modem Options software??? After installing
    it it doesn't seem to do anything and the Nokia modem option they describe
    as being in control panel is not there?

    I have tried uninstalling / reinstalling and downloading the software from
    the net instead of the CD version, checking infared selected in mrouter but
    all to no avail.

    Any advice or cures would be greatly appreciated!

    I used to use a different version of Handset Manager and the same infared
    connector to connect my SL55 with no problems whatsoever.

    Many thanks

    Clippy

    You can get the IRDA driver from the mobile action website

    Ensure that you have all the latest 6600 compatible software! That means
    the IRDA driver, MA620 Agent for the phone, and the handset manager. You
    need to start the MA620 Agent app on the phone and start the handset manager
    software on the pc together to ensure that they "speak" to each other...

    extract it to a directory, run setup. If it asks for the MA620.SYS file,
    point it to the directory that you extracted it to.

    XP then "complains" that this isn't a verified driver, but select "Continue
    Anyway"

    Restart Machine.

    ..oOo.

    I have this setup myself, and I appreciate how fickle it can be! It can be
    working fine, but then install the "wrong" device or software somewhere down
    the line and all of a sudden it won't work for love nor money!

    When it happened the last time, I suspected Norton System Works to have
    knobbled it in some way (but I could not confirm it)

    At the moment, mine has been working fine for a good six months! (Since the
    last "reformat and start again")

    I had problem with IR and Nokia PC suit, until I've figured how to
    position the phone. My advices:
    1. Don't keep the phone in the hand, put it on the table near
    reciever. Seems connection more easy to establish if phone unmoving.
    2. I think that IR in the 6600 in the middle of the left side, so
    orient phone accoringly.
    3. Turn off firewall (you can keep integrated windows firewall
    though). Sometimes turning off internet connection help too.

    As soon as connection established you can take phone again, move it a
    little etc. Established connection quite stable and not easyly
    breakable.

    Making the connection is not the problem. It's how windows then detects it
    and insists on trying to install a driver for the 6600. I've given up on PC
    Suite and Handset Manager as when I cancel the windows driver install both
    these pieces of software then won't connect to the phone and recognise it.
    I've managed to get some third party software that works fine with it and
    seems far more functional anyway.
