    Sorry for the cross post. I was not getting replies from the

    Problem description
    -------------------

    I have bought a data cable (DSU-9) for my cell phone Samsung SGH-X210.
    This data cable goes to the usb port of the computer.

    When I connected the cable, it said "New hardware found" and I
    installed driver for the cable from the driver provided in the CD. In
    device manager, it shows under under +Ports Prolific USB-to-Serial
    Bridge - COM4 as device properly installed.

    Then I installed the Samsung PC Studio PIMS II 1.0 (Win 98/ME/2K/XP)
    software from samsung website. This is the software for my cell phone
    X210.
    http://in.samsungmobile.com/en/phone...fid_1=SGH-X210

    Exact problem
    -------------

    The software is unable to detect the phone as in the status bar it says
    "Offline". I have done everyting right and I am sure and confident
    about it.

    After contacting Samsung support, they said the cable is duplicate and
    I have to buy a Original genuine cable which is a serial cable and NOT
    USB (cable # PCB093LBE) from Samsung authorised dealers. I didn't know
    this when I bought the DSU-9 cable.

    They gave me the following instructions
    *Connect cable to phone and other end to serial port
    *Click Setup in the software, select the port.
    *Set baud rate to 460800 and click OK.

    Suggestion required
    -------------------

    I did the steps that they gave me and instead of COM1, I set it up to
    COM4 as I have a USB cable with USB-to-Serial Bridge driver but still
    it is not working.

    Does a physical serial cable and USB cable with USB-to-Serial Bridge
    driver makes any difference? Can anybody help me with this issue
    without buying a new cable. I have already wasted money on the other
    cable which the shopkeeper is not ready to take it back.

    Re: Cable does not detect phone

    Until about 9 months ago, I used a USB cable with a Samsung
    VGA1000, and it worked fine. The only suggestion I have is
    that normally you'd install the driver without having the phone
    connected to the PC. The driver install procedure may prompt
    you to connect the phone at some point.

    Too bad he posted it in the wrong newsgroup. The SGH-X210 is a GSM phone.

    Re: Cable does not detect phone

    Sorry Isaiah for putting it in the wrong NG, did not notice that and
    Thanx decaturtxcowboy for your quote.

    Thanx John for your suggestion. My issue is resolved. The cable was
    defective. The one end that goes to cell phone was bad. I don't know
    why the computer was saying "New Hardware Found"

    Got the cable changed from the vendor and now it works fine.

    Another question:
    Not sure if this is the right place to ask but still:

    I have used lot of softwares that converts WAV to MMF or MP3 to MMF and
    got it working too but when I play the ringtones on the phone, it does
    not give good audio quality.

    Can anybody suggest a good software to convert WAV to MMF (preferably)
    or MP3 to MMF?

    Thanx
    Maxi
