Hello,

I recommend the Acer line of products all the time and love working on them when they come in for upgrades.

You probably do not have IR installed or you'd have a transceiver attached to your tower.. You probably have a connector and IR is capable of being added on to your tower.

You will need to contact Acer and ask them to sell you the proper add on and or instruct you on what vendor to use to purchase one. They come with instructions. You'll end up with an attachment insert that goes in one of the blank slots at the bottom of your tower. You then plug in a transceiver unit that has a cable and you can then bring this around front so its accessible by another IR device. Normally, these were intended to be used with early versions of wireless mice. Now they are used for multimedia hand held remote controls that can turn up and turn down volume of a DVD playing, etc.

With a cell phone, you are much better off purchasing or using your USB cable that attaches to your cell phone and plugs into your PC. Then you can open the cell phone as a removable hard drive and transfer ring tones and mp3 files into the proper folders on your cell phones memory card.

Usually, you have to go through your phone store online to order the USB cable for your model, unless you have one. This is the easiest hassle-free method. Doing it by IR is full of problems waiting to surface and challenge you.

I hope this answers your question and if it does please rate this reply as 'Fixed'. Thank you in advance.

I'll still be glad to assist you later when you have the cable. You can click on my board nickname and then bookmark that profile page. Later you can return and click on the Ask Me button and I'll get an email you've made a request.

Let me know, if there is more you need to know before you rate this response. I'm here to help, sometimes not at my laptop every minute, but I will get back to you quickly.
