    I have a sony ericsson s710a cellphone. it has an IR port on it and you can transfer mp3s/pics back and forth from your phone to your pc. well i decided to give this a try. placed my phone next to the port, pc detected the phone, installed all the necessary drivers... then nothing. no boxes showed up, no icons in the system tray. NOTHING. tried it on a friends pc and it did the same thing except a small IR icon showed up on his tray and when you double click it you can then transfer files to/from your phone.

    can anyone explain why my pc doesnt do this? it says my IR port is working properly. I tried system restore and re-installing drivers, didnt do a thing. help please.:x:
