Let me chip in my 2 cents worth, hopefully it helps your situation. You might need to make sure that the IR adaptor uses the IrDA driver, instead of the other type of driver which emulates a COM port. Secondly it could be that you left the phone idling without transfering data, so it auto disconnects. It happens to my 6610, but not my 8250, so I guess the newer phones try to save battery.

I belive you need to use Nokia suite to do the transfer.

oh i have downloaded and installed the suite already, but the infra connection is not working properly.

IrDA modem driver might not be the correct one. Going by the name it might be the driver for you to use the phone as a modem, and linking to the computer via IR instead of cables. What you need is the IrDA driver, and you should see a wireless link in your control panel after installing it, for Windows 2000 and XP. Another thing you can try is to see if there are generic infra red adaptor drivers in the OS, so effectively bypassing the need for CDs and other self-supplied drivers.

i'll try getting the proper driver/cd of the IR adaptor, else i'll just give up trying it until i get another adaptor or something. Thanks a lot for the suggestions and info.
