    I have just got a Nokia 6600, and I have a laptop with an infrared port.
    Trouble is there doesn't seem to be much software/documentation on the
    laptop about it. Anyone know of any software, free or otherwise, that will
    allow me to utilise the built-in infrared port on the laptop to send files
    (games, music, apps, pics, ringtones, etc) to my 6600 smartphone?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you've got a recent Windows OS on the PC (Win2000 or XP)
    It should have built in IR support.
    Try turning the your phones IR receive on, then aiming the phone IR port at
    the PCs one.

    If nothing happens, you might have to go into Windows Add/Remove Windows
    components and add the IR support, but normally (IME) it is installed by
    default if the PC has an IR port.

    Good luck,

    Chris.

    Ok, if that was the case, what software would I use to send, say, a jpeg or
    ..mid file to my phone?

    Ahh, this is where the problem is then - my right-click menu doesn't have
    that option, but my laptop definetely has a built-in IR port, and the
    Control Panel has an IR icon.

    ususally I think that the send to option is only there when there is
    an active ir connection. I could check but have left my laptop at work
    but will have a look for you tomorrow. If IR is on and active on your
    laptop the OS should ask for drivers etc when you bring the 6600 near
    by with its IR on as well.

    garb snipped.

    Why not go to Nokia.com and download the PC Suite for your model of phone.
    As previously stated, windows will detect your phone automatically.
    PC Suite will do the same.
