IR Connection to my PDA

  Ally 23:01 13 Sep 2003

I have a laptop running XP. I have the latest Palm desktop software downloaded for my M105 PDA but I want to communicate using infrared because my laptop does not have a nine pin socket with which to connect the PDA 'Hotsync' cradle to. I cannot get my computer to talk to my PDA. The help menu in 'Hotsync Manager' says to add the simulated COM port that the IR system uses. I am at a loss as to how to find it, even though I have interegated my laptop extensively. If I do find it, how do I add it in the 'Palm Hotsync' setup. Has anyone had a similar problem. The Palm support site is of no help.

Has your laptop got an Irda sensor on board. If it has not what you need is a usb to Irda. This was posted last night.

This will enable your pda to communicate with the laptop.

Have you enabled the Irda port in the laptop bios?

If not then enable it and your pc will come up with 'found new hardware'.

Also, while in the bios, you can choose which port to use etc.
