Trouble with Nokia 6100 and IR in Windows XP

Well, the subject kinda says it all really.

The phone and computer recognise each other, Nokia PC Suite says it's there - then it drops out. The IR symbol starts flashing on the mobile and PC Suite says it's not there anymore. Can't even get a chance to load anything on to the phone.

I've been doing some hunting around and it sounds like a driver problem - ****en Windows XP. I've installed the drivers that came with the IR dongle as it told me to do, but no better.

Help!!!

Dammit, why can't things just work when they say they will, and you follow the instructions!

I choose to remain silent. Everything I say will be misquoted and used against me.

Nope! As long as it's IRDA, it's fine. When it comes to data cables though, PC Suite will only work with the Nokia cable.
