'Your Phone is in file transfer mode and cannot be used with PC Suite'

Hi,

I'm getting two error messages when I try to transfer images and video to my PC. The first says - 'Nokia Device Bus connected in non-compatible mode'. When I try the 'connection wizard' on PC suite, it tells me that my phone is in 'file transfer mode and cannot be used with PC Suite'

I've never had this problem before, so does anyone know how to switch off 'file transfer mode'? Its a Nokia 3250. Who ever fixes my problem wins a free Nexus 1GB MicroSD card (bought it as an upgrade, but the phone doesn't 'see it'!'


Cheers,

Charlie

Hi fishergimp

Select Menu> Connect. > Data cbl.. Select what the USB data cable connection is used for: Media player, PC Suite, or Data transfer. To have the device ask the purpose of the connection each time the cable is connected, select Ask on connection.
For Data transfer and Media player connections the phone is in the offline mode, and no incoming or outgoing calls are possible.
After transferring data, ensure that it is safe to unplug the USB data cable from the PC.

You better reformat your card in the phone as I said before. After format there'll be folders for music, video, etc.. This is necessary for search functions. Remove the mem card as described in the English manual on page 15. To connect the N73 to PCSuite there are a few options. Check the manual on page 97 about data cable.

Hi,

 

I have already formatted the card in the phone after i transferred the data from the card on to the desk top. When i connect to pc suite it is picking up multi phones and asks to switch off file transter mode as it is not compatable. I have also put the card in the adapter in to my pc and i thought i could drag the data back on to card but it wont let me and it says protected or insert disc.
