Hi everyone,

I'm not sure where to put this post, so if it is in the wrong place feel free to tell me so. I have a Samsung E900 and i'm trying to transfer my photos from it to my Macbook. Unfortunately, it just says connecting FOREVER (sorry, I get angry) and won't connect. I have paired the two devices, turned on bluetooth file sharing in security. I can access the phone from my computer, but the photos (which are JPEGS do no appear in my file transfer box. Some MP3's do but nothing else. In a nutshell computer to phone connects, phone to computer does not. Any ideas, thanks! xx

Yes, both devices are on discoverable. It's just really strange how I can send files from the computer to the phone, but no vice versa. I used to be able to do this fine on my iBook G4....
