Hi people....I have a Packard Bell i go 4000 series Laptop and I have a new Samsung E330 mobile phone. I bought a data cable from Samsung for my phone so I could connect it to my laptop, but the end that should go into my laptop won't fit. I think its called a parallel port, but it looks the same as the end of the data cable...thats why it doesnt fit! Is there an adaptor that I could fit to the cable to enable me to attach it to my laptop? Hope you all understand this...very difficult for me to describe these things!!! Thankyou..

thanks johnnyrocker and santos7....I will try Maplins but the samsung site is how I ordered the cable in the first place!!! Thanks anyway...will keep trying..xx

looking at the cable, and what you have explained they may well have sent you the wrong one as the picture clearly shows a parrallel port connection and the dedicated connection to your phone

Hi, your phone has I-Red, WinXP has I-Red capablities so all you need is a usb I-Red Dongle
and hey presto. Very cheap to buy and a doddle to use. I have one on my pc for my Nokia.

so, you've basically got a cable that has both ends the same?

well, that's samsung's problem, they've probably sent you the wrong cable

Technotiger.....if you say so! I will look for it but never heard of these things!! Thanks anyway. Chezdez....the cable isnt the same at both ends! One end does fit into my mobile, but the other end is same as port on laptop, so its obviously either the male or the female..but either way, it doesnt fit.

Me again - if you really want to use the cable in your posession, then Maplins do stock gender-bender adapters.
