Transferring Files with Bluetooth Devices

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have two computers at home. The first one is running Windows 7 with built-in Bluetooth device. And the other one that I normally used for day – to – day downloading and uploading of files. It runs Windows XP Professional, and I am using a USB Bluetooth dongle on it.

It works with plug-and-play so it automatically installed its driver. Aside from that, there is no more software or programs that come with the dongle.

Yesterday, I was trying to transfer documents file from my Win 7 to Win XP through Bluetooth but end up with this error message:

Sending Item(s)

Abort FTP operation

No Services Found

Close

I can see that the Bluetooth on both computers are connected, and when I tried to send files with Win XP is going to Win 7 PC, it works successfully.

Both computers tell me that I am connected, and I can transfer from windows XP to the windows 7 machine without issue.

Is there something wrong with my configurations?

If so, how can I fix it?

When you send data from Windows7 to windows XP then remove all the devices and search again for pairing on Windows7 and now you send the data tom windows XP you are able to transfer the data to windows XP.

Hello,

Sorry about the problem you are experiencing, here are some troubleshooting methods you can try so as to solve the problem.

1. Disable your windows firewall or alternatively,

2. Disable your security software(s) such as antivirus, antimalware or spyware this is because some security software(s) tend to restrict or deny certain operations to be carried out.

Hope this helps.

Hello G. Adam,

Bluetooth Devices are not affected by their dependence on Windows 7 or Windows XP. You may be facing problems with your Bluetooth Adaptor.

I suggest you remove all of your Bluetooth devices and then uninstall it. Then, install the Bluetooth application again and reboot your computer. Now, transfer your files easily by using Bluetooth.

Sometimes, Antivirus, USB Disk Security, and Firewall create problems when transferring files using Bluetooth, so you can disable them while you are transferring files.

I hope this helps you.

Hi G.Adam,

Your problem solves easily, this is not a major problem. Now please insert your Bluetooth device on XP system PC and open your Bluetooth Windows 7 system Laptop. Select your Sending item and click right button now press send to and select Bluetooth devices.

Just send your item & search your another Bluetooth when connected then enter a password.

Finally sent your data.

Thanks

That is really a bad experience, but you can have a lot of solutions.

You can disable your windows firewall and try to open if the problem occurs again.

The WIndows XP ha an important feature that it contains generic Bluetooth drivers. So I think that there is some problem with the improperly working Bluetooth profile that has been chosen by the user. To fix this problem, you have to follow these instructions properly:

1. Open up the Computer Management MMC and then proceed to start-run-computer.msc-(enter key}

2. Explore "device manager" and from here, open"Generic  Bluetooth Radio" and click on "Update Driver".

3. Select "No, Not this Time" in the wizard setting. Then install it on the hard drive.

4. Do not update online searching and press "Have Disk". Then click "Browse" and "Next". Now the driver will be installed automatically and it resets the Blue Tooth to transfer files successfully.

Hi Adam,

See that Bluetooth is properly on and there is not anything blocking files to send from one system to another system.

The problem might occur due to the settings set by the system administrator and doesn't allow anybody else but to the system administrator to do sharing.

Check same for receiving computer as well.

See that Bluetooth drivers are up to date and not missing or corrupted.

If everything above mentioned is fine then,

Restart systems and try again.

Hope this works for you.

Thanks,
