Nokia 6230 - PC

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

A number of questions

1. When using nokia PC suite (audio manager)is it possible to download
Mp3s direct to the mmc? I have tried this but doesn't move the file. I
can download them onto the phone then move them into the MMC manually
however if the file is larger than the available memory (about 6 meg) I
can't put the file into the phone. Ideas?

2. What program cam change Mp3's to the aac format? I have heaps of
MP3s to change to the lower meg format. What is the other name for aac?

3. How do you move videos from the phone to the computer using a DKU-2
cable? I can do it on the laptop at work as it has IR but alas, the
home PC doesn't have IR?

Thanks all :-)

    You can simply use the Windows Explorer to move any type of files between
    the PC and the phone's internal memory or the MMC. With the Nokia PC Suite
    installed, you should have the Nokia Phone Browser appear under My Computer,
    so just drag the files between the hard drive and any folder, including the
    MMC, on the phone. This should work the same way with the IR, BT, or cable
    connection.

    I don't know any MP3-AAC converters. Sometimes, AAC is referred to as MP4,
    but I don't really know how valid this reference is. If you don't want to
    spend a lot of time and sacrifice audio quality converting your existing
    files, I would recommend you buy a huge MMC instead.

    I've never been able to get (any version of) PC Suite's Phone Browser to
    work this way on any computer I've worked with. Tried both BT and IR
    connections.

    Also the Apple AAC implementation is proprietary so if you're iPod/iTunes
    dependent then you may not find third-party support.

    I've only tried the PC Suite version 6.2 with the 6230, and the Phone
    Browser component works flawlessly on both my desktop and my laptop. Both
    are running Windows XP SP1, and I use IR on both of them, but I'm sure the
    connection method doesn't matter.

    Yes I have that combination and Phone browser hangs all the time. It was the
    same when I had an earlier version of PC Suite and a 6610.

    I'm also experiencing this with the latest build of XP SP2.

    Well I tried this. The first time it didn't work then strangely worked
    the second time. How bizarre! Thanks!

    Also I found a program called dbpoweramp converter. You need to download
    codecs as well but it worked great.

    Thanks for your help, much appreiated!

    This sort of problem with PC Suite is VERY common, which was the main reason
    I originally wrote MobiMB.

    Generally, there are no official MP3 to AAC format converters. However
    there are some freeware converters. Just, type 'MP3 to AAC converter'
    in any search engine and explore results. The other name of AAC is
    'MP4' or 'M4A'.

    We plan to support DKU-2 connection in future versions of Oxygen Phone
    Manager II. Current version of Oxygen Phone Manager II enables to
    manage Nokia 7600 and 6230 by Bluetooth and Infrared, but we are
    working on DKU-2 connection, indeed.

    You can always download the latest trial on our official website

    Pity it doen't handle the PIM-synching too. I can handle the other (rarer)
    transmissions using Windows XP natively.

    Easy CD-DA Extractor 7.1.0 (Build 3) can convert to MP4 if that is the same
    thing...
    Worth buying, you get free upgrades which are regularly - I use it for
    making my own CDs...
