    Nokia N70 mobile


    I know it can work with obexfs drivers, but is there an easy way to browse this mobile phone for image, and movie transfer via USB cable? I need it on Mandriva.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    Install obexftp and openobexapps.

    Use
    obexftp -u
    command to list devices.

    You can use obexftp command to browse and edit files from memory card.
    Or you can use gui of obextool -->
    sudo obextool --obexcmd "obexftp -u 1"

    As I have told, I need it on Mandriva. Unfortunatelly, there is no obextool package for Mandriva. I made package from the Debian one, still I cannot satisfy the tablelist dependency, although I did transformed it with alien too. I've installed all, but not working, it cannot find it, although there is!
    Men, we need one-big-good program, instead of having a dozen of small libraries, with unsatisfiable dependency hell!

    Have you tried this

    Well, if libraries are there, the all packages should be available.

    I've been trying off and on to get this to work with my Nokia 3120.
    Besides Obex (and supporting packages) do I need anything? When I installed it on Windows I needed to install a driver, because the USB cable is actually a serial port/USB crossover.
    Meaning, it connects the phone to the computer via a USB plug, but for some stupid reason the computer thinks it's a serial port connection (so in Windows I had to reboot every time I plugged in).

    I don't have idea about Nokia that much, but its sure that they sucks.
    Never tried Nokia 3120, but some of the N series.

    When I type obexftp -u I get nothing. But when I try lsusb it's there.
    Maybe there's a way to manually mount it?

    Well, It works for me SE phone, but i can't try it now on Nokia because I don't own one.
    But you can use wammu or something like that figure out what connection protocol your phone uses.

    That's great, but how do I know which USB port I'm using?
    It's a CA-42 cable, and the output from lsusb is:
    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 6547:0232 Arkmicro Technologies Inc. ARK3116 Serial
    In order to configure the phone, I need to tell it which USB port. But which USB port is it??
