    with the drivers and pc suite from nokia, i can't get the thing to work (phone not connected, driver not found)

    .......... it won't install either

    what can i do ?

    thanks for any help, i'm struggling now for a week, and almost at the point of smashing a hammer !!!

    Have you contacted the manufacturer for support? After all they made that
    thing and should know how to work it.

    Re: again..dku-5

    hello

    the ebay seller gave me some urls, no help
    the drivers i got from him seem to install well, but pc suite from nokia
    does not connect to the phone
    that is : i get a usb cable over the com3 port

    either oxygen phone manager : no connection

    more info : it seems it is not a prolific cable, as seen in the registry

    i'm losing hope... so i'll have to spend another 50 euro for the original
    nokia cable !!


    thanks for any additional help you may have

    You're better off with a generic infrared adaptor.

    No problems with connectivity, Nokia PC suite will work fine, as will most
    other progs, eg Logomanager, Oxygen.

    Not sure what good a dongle will be with a 7250i as, as far as I know, it
    doesn't connect to anything dongleish.

    When I had a 7250i I tried using a non branded cable and it wouldn't work
    for me either. Bought a proper Nokia one and all was well. Logic says that
    there's not anything which can be done to a cable to make one sort work and
    another not (other than cutting it, of course) yet, the proof was in the
    connecting.

    It's got IR, so an IR dongle would be a far cheaper (and easier) option than
    fannying about with third party cables.

    Nokia don't like you using after market accessories, so if it is using a
    different chip set PC Suite wont see it.

    Because PC Suite doesn't like certain DKU-5 cloned cables. This has been a
    problem since the very first clones appeared so you need to be sure of your
    supplier if buying a clone, or pay a stupid amount for a genuine DKU-5. If
    the phone has other connectivity options (IR, BT etc) I'd go that route
    instead personally.

    the cable is a cheap copy, so i only cab use it with oxygen phone manager,
    temporarilyu trhe free version, or pay 29 euro for the full version

    you tip is to buy a (cheap) USB to IR and have the Nokia suite free

    does anyone know the difference in Nokia suite and OPM ? onn possibilities,
    stability ?

    tnx

    That would be the best suggestion, yes.

    The main one is that PC-Suite is free. Oxygen is far more versatile but the
    licensing is restrictive when compared to PC-Suite, the interface is still
    very cluttered but it seems stable enough. It's all a question of if you
    need the extra features Oxygen provides and if the cost is a worthwhile
    investment for you.

    again..dku-5

    1. ProLific PL-2303 isn't DKU-5 cable. DKU-5 cables are always and only
    Nokia production.
    2. You can use this cable only for data synchronization ( modem functions
    doesn't work for this cable) with Oxygen Phone Manager II (
    http://www.opm-2.com/ ). In our program in 'Tools' -> 'Options' ->
    'Connection and common' -> 'Connection' -> 'Add port' you should set virtual
    COM port from 'Control panel' -> 'System' -> 'Hardware' -> 'Device
    manager' -> 'Ports COM and LPT' (it has 'ProLific USB to Serial bridge'
    sign ). Set cable's type as 'DLR-3/DLR-3p'. Don't set 'DKU-5' option ( it
    works only with Nokia original cables ).

    Note: ProLific cables may not transfer correctly or transfer at all MMS,
    JAVA, poly-tones and color images information. ProLific cable connection
    voids your phone's warranty.

    You can download the latest free trial of Oxygen Phone Manager II here:

    http://www.opm-2.com/download/opm2.zip

    If you have any questions and/or suggestions, concerning our
    program, feel free to post them on our official forum

    Re: again..dku-5


    I have had similar problems with DKU-5 / Nokia 6100 / SOny Vaio
    notebook. Took couple days of trying to load/unload all settings and
    finally I read all info on Nokia's website and installation guide.
    Problem was solved immediately if one follows the instructions
    correctly in sequence:
    Do not connect DKU-5 first
    Load Cable driver
    Load Modem driver
    Re-start PC
    Connect DKU-5
    It is recognized and installs correctly
    Re-start PC
    Then load Nokia Suite software

    It should work fine.
