Leopard | Bluetooth Sharing

I got this email today...

i bought leopard for my macbook recently and i can't send files from my mobile to it. do you know how to fix it? thanks

Just in case anyone else is facing the same problem,
here's how to fix it...

  • Go to System Preferences
  • Click on Sharing icon [pic]
  • Check Bluetooth Sharing box [pic]

It should be working properly now.

Or you can just add your phone as trusted and browse it from the computer and pull any file from the phone.

btw, seems like you are a Mac guru, if you are interested we have a small mac community perhaps you can join in & write a little review about it :)

Have a good day,

There has to be something wrong. If not the mac maybe your phone.

As long as you give me "Proof of life" by commenting then you can tease all you want. :P

mo mughrabi:
You're right but sometimes you want to send one file without having to go through all files in your mobile.

Thanks for the comment. I've been observing your community but I haven't got the chance to join, hopefully I will whenever possible.

Keep up the great work.

Really what?

Glad to be of service. :P

btw, do u by any chance use aMSN? I updated mine and now it's not working! It opens but the window (where u sign in) doesn't pop up. :S

I'm not sure what the problem is, however, if your Mac is PPC (old Mac, not Intel) then expect it to act like that because Leopard isn't firmly stable on PPC Macs.

Though you can try one of these two things...
1- Download the updates.
2- Go to Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility,
click on your hard drive from the list on the left and choose "Repair Disk Permissions" option at the bottom of the window.

Good luck.

@ 1&2 .. Cool.
@ 3... Email.

Oh yeah and I still need credit on that project. :P

is there a way to connect to an external display via bluetooth... i.e., see my laptop's desktop on a LCD monitor without physically plugging the monitor into the laptop?

The Criticizer said...

No, I don't think there is, yet.

Nice post as for me. It would be great to read more concerning that matter. The only thing it would also be great to see here is some pics of some devices.
