Default bluetooth file transfer: P3 <-> PC?

I just got a P3, and I was playing around with the Bluetooth. I noticed the File Transfer menu - can you set it up between a PC & the P3, or is that more from mp3 player to mp3 player?

If it can connect to a PC, any tips on how?

Thanks!

It can connect to a pc, mp3 player and phone etc. if you want to connect it to your pc you will need to have bluetooth on it also or buy a bluetooth dongle. As for how you just go into file transfer mode and it will search for any bluetooth signals and should then pick up your pc. You can send files backwards and forwards between them then. same with a phone etc.

It'll work so long as your PC has Bluetooth. However on a PC it'll be faster to just plug in the USB cable.

Any way to send files and actually have them show up in music and video list rather than have to use the file browser to find them?

I think transfered files end up in a "Shared data" folder in the My Pack folder. As far as I can tell the only way to get them into your music folder(s) is to use the PC.

They stay in My Pack but you can add them to a playlist. I BT stuff between phone, PC and P3 all the time.

Do your music files still show the tag id's when you add them to the playlist or do they just show up with the file name as if you drag & dropped?

Yeah the dev of P3buddy discovered all bluetooth transfers goto the shared folder of the p3. So he stopped developing for the bluetooth side of it and wound up just making functions that deal with PC cable transfers until Samsung changes that via firmware.

Could you explain this P3buddy app thing?

It's an app that is being developed to handle playlist on the p3, add album art to your songs from amazon. He originally was developing this to work via bluetooth until he discovered the limitations of BT transfers (shared folder only).

It will convert m3u playlists to P3 playlists, or create playlists from the music on your p3.

It's still in private beta at this stage.

Addendum:

The P3 Buddy is now open beta.

You should be able to google it to find it. If not then PM me.

It's still beta but it's pretty stable now.

For any of those of you who are interested, this app lets you manage/create playlists for the P3, add/update album art via amazon dot com. And lets you convert m3u playlists to P3 playlists.

It's a work in progress but it has come along quite well so far.

Also the developer will take feedback, both suggestions and bug reports from what I've seen.

Meh, wish my phone could use its bluetooth for file transfer , that way I wouldn't have to send a picture message to the "My Album" thing T-Mobile has and be charged for it... -_-

It's what ever you set it as. The P3 asks to you type in a pairing code, then when you try to connect with PC or phone it asks what the pairing code is (which will be what ever you typed on the P3).

So when the P3 prompts you for the pairing code, that is the setup of the pairing code and you will need to remember what you entered here to use on the other device, when you go to pair up.
