    I had no problems transfering ringtones and images from my lap top to my
    7210 via IR connection. That is until today. Now it says 'Failed to
    update ring tone / image to phone'. I have checked the connection, it
    works fine. No memory problem, because I still have more than 300 kb. I
    am using PC Suite 5.61 on the Windows XP lap top. I had removed and
    reinstalled PC Suite, still the same problem. I even deleted some games
    on the 7210 to get more memory, but without success. I need help, please
    somebody help me.

    Hmm, I've not met this one before. There are four possibilities I can think
    of other than a bug or glitch, but none may be right. Some file systems have
    a limit to the number of files they can store in total, and in a given
    folder. You could try making a new folder and using that. Or you could try
    deleting some of your ring tones or graphics and then seeing if you can
    upload a different ringtone or graphic respectively.

    Secondly, it's possible that even though the memory is shared that the phone
    reserves a set amount of memory for things. For example it may keep say 300K
    for contacts. So you can have 500K if you want, but if you just have 1K
    you're still using 300K.

    Thirdly, it's possible the system is reporting it's free memory based on the
    total memory size minus the amount that is used. A common mistake that many
    of my computing students have made in the past. People often forget that the
    amount of space a file takes up on a disk is actually a multiple of the
    cluster size required and not the actual size of the file - it's always
    more. This very "feature" appeared in early versions of Windows 95. People
    were using FAT16 on their hard drives from Windows 3.1 and upgraded to
    Windows 95 which promptly created hundreds of shortcuts which were each
    about 300 bytes in size. However, each of these shortcuts really took up
    about 32K or even 64K as that was the cluster size of the hard drives and
    these people then wondered why they had used only 80MB of their hard drive
    yet their 400MB hard drive was full! In an ideal world the files would just
    be stored in the same way they would be loaded into RAM, but it's easier for
    people to use a filesystem like FAT16 that has already been tried and tested
    and is readily available.

    Finally, it could be that the file allocation table is full. This is where
    the phone will store the information on all of its files, like name, size,
    attributes, and which bits of memory they use.

    Try deleting a picture or two then uploading another picture, or try
    deleting a ring tone then uploading another one. Does this work?

    Nokia is a little vague on exactly how it adds up, but here is their memopry
    list for the 7210:
    -------------------------------------
    The following functions share dynamic memory that is dependent on the data
    quantity per item and shared memory available at a time in the Nokia 7210.

    Phone book (up to 300 entries)
    .. SMS messages (up to 150 text messages or 50 picture/concatenated messages)
    .. MMS (up to 15 max size 30 kB MMS messages)
    .. Ringing tones (31 preset, 20 removable, up to 60 average size 5 kB ringing
    tones)
    .. Images (10 preset, up to 35 average size 10 kB images)
    .. Calendar notes (up to 250 entries)
    .. To-do list (up to 30 entries)
    .. JavaT applications (3 preset, up to 6 max size 64 kB per application)
    -------------------------------------

    Not sure if the 20 removable are included in the 60 or what. Seems like one
    would have to have an awful lot of ringers before it were a problem, but who
    knows.

    BTW, the Ericson t300 is weird with cluster sizes or whatever. I have put
    ..8k files on that only too the memory total down by 1k, others of less than
    1k have taken 3, and almost anything over 5 takes up 10.

    Re: Help. 7210 IR problem

    Thanks for the lengthy explanation. I sure appreciate that. BTW, I have
    only downloaded 13 ringtones with average size of 15 kb, and only 1
    image of 24 kb. I have deleted all the preset images and ringtones in
    the gallery to get more memories. But the same problem persisted. I
    suspect it's something to do with the phone's IR mechanism. Someone
    suggested I purchase a cable (I don't know what cable) to connect the
    phone directly to the laptop. But I am not going to depart with my money
    unless I know for sure it will work. Any suggestion?
    Thank you.
