IRDA between PC and PDA

  chriscross72 10:33 25 Mar 2006

I have an Acer N30 pocket pc which has infra red capabilities. I have purchased a 'Huatong' irda dongle which plugs into a usb port.
Unfortunately I seem unable to get either device to trasnsfer files either way form pc to pda or vice versa.
The device is there under device manager and an icon appears on the toolbar saying that the pocket pc is recognised.
I followed instructions on the installation disc but am still unable to transfer anything from either device.
Have I missed something out that I have to do with XP home ?
My Pc is an E-Machines E4020 with XP Home.

sorry just looked in device manager and it's quoted as being a 'Kingsun KS959'
I've tried again but the devices still will not send or receive although they recognise each other's existance
