    I am trying to sort out a problem with my friends nokia n-gage, XP &
    pc suite software.

    all installed ok, including a Belkin BT usb adapter ( unknown model
    number )

    I have seen that there is a lot of people with similar problems, so I
    hope some one can help.

    when starting the PC suite first time, it asks for the n-gage to be
    connected, this has been tried using the supplied USB cable and the
    belkin BT, but both ways the software doesnt find the phone, therefore
    it exits.

    on USB cable, XP finds the n-gage storage , but not as a phone, as a
    local disc.
    on BT ( usb ) all the BT - N-gage functions seem to be there, ie file
    transfere possible.

    but how do I get the PC suite to find the phone via cable or BT ?
    the Mrouter in the taskbar ONLY has infrared connection listed, no BT
    or serial or com ports, and the pc hasnt even got IR! ( well I dont
    think it has )

    I think I have to get the BT adapter, or the `com` for the cable to
    show on the Mrouter ? but how ?????

    any help is TIA.

    The USB cable only connects the PC to the MMC card, not the n-gage. You use
    Widcomm BT, Mrouter and the Belkin dongle to connect PC suite to the n-gage
    itself. Don't use the "Nokia connection manager" it doesn't seem to do
    anything. Set Mrouter to use Com7 or Com8 as instructed by the Widcomm
    driver bubble that appears above the system tray when you pair the devices.
    Another odd thing you might see is that when you do a manual "Quick connect"
    connection, the PC needs to disconnect before the n-gage re-connects and
    syncs.

    excuse me...ive been using bluetooth and pc suite for almost 6 months
    without problems...

    and u DO need Nokia Connection manager....if I disable that on mine THEN i
    CANNOT access PC suite...

    so please don't talk **** unless u use it....

    no to get PC Suite to work a couple of things need to be in order....

    1.. Installed Bluetooth First?
    2. Paired Ngage and Bluetooth?
    3. Installed Pc Suite Now on C Drive only and only on C Drive! dont tell me
    why just do it...

    If u said u can get pc transfer etc with bluetooth....well heres where ur
    going wrong...its with Nokia Connection manager....

    In Mrouter what is the Com port that is ticked?...note that down...

    Double-click Nokia Connection Manager ...

    Notice and click the left icon (yellow icon with a serial plug)...all other
    icons should be OFF

    A window with a com port selection will come up....now make sure its the
    same as the com port u noted down before....its probably not thats why this
    problem exists...assign it...

    ie..Nokia Connection manager MUST know the com port too....in order for PC
    Suite to connect to ur bluetooth device...NKM is resposible for that...those
    that have disabled or have taken out nokia connection manager....hello...put
    it back in....

    cheers

    ps...the amount of stupidity in the symbian community is starting to bloody
    amaze me...(and i've only been looking into it for the last 6 months)

    oh and in case anyone hasn't told u yet or you were too lazy to read....dont
    eva format your mmc card using ur ngage and xp format (unless u format it as
    fat16)...ok...or ull lose ur usb functionality....

    Thank you for your request!

    Cable connection for this phone doesn't work with Nokia PC Suite or
    any other data synchronization program: you can use it only for MP3
    files and MMC card management with standard DKE-2 cable. The only way
    to connect the smarphone for data synchronization purposes is to use
    built-in bluetooth transceiver. The most convenient way to synchronize
    your phone's data with PC is to use Oxygen Phone Manager for Symbian
    OS phones. You can download the trial version here:

    If you will have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
