IR or cable connection

Want to connect my Phone (Nokia 6100) to my PC.

Seems I have two options either buy the official cable or buy an USB infrared port.

Which is the best option? and why?

I am using Win 98Se have noticed from previous threads that Infrared can cause problems with this OS. Is this a common problem or an Isolated one?

Just been looking at this IR Port click here
gives little indication of compatability although thte price is good. Anybody tried it - more to the point anybody try it with wn 98se?

Only ever seen problems with IR connections - whereas cable normally works fine.

Dark Knight,
Seems a good price,i use a belkin usb i.r. on mine-its a lot more expensive though.Use it for my nokia 7650 with win xp,never had any problems-sees it straightaway.Also i notice the driver provided on floppy is also for win 98.Food for thought?

Try click here - not sure whether this helps or good enough for price, but they are usually well stocked and very helpful
