    Bluetooth

    Has anyone got any idea how to link 2 PC together to copy files from one to the other, or do anything else for that matter.

    I have a 64 bit Bluetooth plugged into the USB on this 64 bit Windows 7 and presumably 32 bit one plugged into the USB of a 32 bit PC with Windows XP. Both are with USB cables located only some 12 inch apart, and both are supposed to fully installed.

    How do I get them to show they recognise each other, such as why do they not show up in each respective My Computer like say a Flash Drive and able to drag files form one to the other, or is that too simple?

    According to some MS Help instructions I ran some the New Device tests as at http://www.sigord.co.uk/Temp/Bluetooth.pdf
    But neither PC found anything. Perhaps because both Bluetooth are already installed when plugged in. Good job both di not cost much on EBay.

    Simplest solution is probably a crossover cable or very cheap switch and 2 patch cables.
    Just assign static IPs to the Ethernet card and make sure both have known admin passwords, then just access \\<ip address>\c$ to get into the administrative root of the C drive

      See how you go with this Gordon. How to pair Bluetooth devices.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.

        Thanks for the help. I am pretty sure both Bluetooth have been installed OK automatically and blink when attempts are made to use them.

        Though as usual I cannot see any mention of it in the gen on http://www.sigord.co.uk/Temp/Bluetooth.pdf both versions of Windows have Bluetooth File Transfer software, but neither recognise the Dongles plugged into a USB.

          I have tried using Bluetooth dongles in the past with a phone and it was a nightmare. Serious issues getting it connected, and then the data transfer rates were prehistoric.

          Ossian's advice is best. Buy yourself a desktop switch and a couple of CAT5 cables. You can get a switch for 6. Connect the switch to your router and the two computers and you will be able to transfer data between them.
