Make a Nokia 6126 work with iSync
Authored by: LC on Jun 22, '07 09:57:22PM

I got this (iSync) to work successfully, using my 6133 and Bluetooth, without a problem
(by modifying the MetaClasses.plist file inside the Nokia-6131.phoneplugin of iSync's ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice).

The problem I have is that I don't know the best way to transfer camera image files from the 6133 onto
the computer (OS X 10.4.9 PPC) and into the iPhoto library.

I can't use ImageCapture.app since it always claims that there are no image files for importing (does it know to read the phone's Memory Card path?).

I don't see that iSync will take any camera images from the phone. Is there a way to capture photos using the iSync conduit?

If I could mount the phone's memory (card) as a filesystem in OS X, then there would be no issue.
When I xfer from my SonyEricsson phone (currently K750), it seems to be so much easier since the phone's memory (and card) are readable by a
variety of means (though I think that USB has different options than when I use Bluetooth).

The worst problem I have is that when I transfer camera images from the Nokia 6133 onto the Mac, those image files seem to have no embedded
timestamps (time of photo capture) ... whether I use Bluetooth File Exchange, or whether I use MacMedia's application "PhoneDirector" to get the files onto the computer and into the iPhoto library.

Sorry this rambled on ... any ideas? Thanks!! Larry.

Transferring camera image files from a 6133
Authored by: LC on Jun 22, '07 11:02:46PM

Weird -- the last batch of image files that I transferred by using PhoneDirector (which I just installed tonight) ...
the file Modification dates are correct, as they were recorded in the memory card of the (6133) phone.
So, they are showing up correctly in the iPhoto library now.
Even though I don't have those embedded timestamps inside the files, at least we have the file dates.

So the lesson I learned with this phone is -- by using Bluetooth File Utility to fetch image files from the 6133,
obviously the file timestamp will be new (on local file creation) and we lose the original mod date.
But it's looking to me as though when using PhoneDirector to fetch those files, the original timestamp gets preserved!!
That's good. Larry
