    I've recently aquired a Nokia N-gage and I don't have a clue how to use it :p
    Just a quick question...how do you copy games to the phone itself,
    one of my mates had done it on his phone.

    (I'm not sure if I'll get an earful from the admins if I ask that one!!)

    Is that the new N-gage or the first one?

    Not sure if the N-Gage works like other Nokia phones, but you can try the Nokia PC Suite that's available on Nokia's site. I use it to install software on my 3650 via infrared/bluetooth.

    Not happy!!
    My 256mb MMC card arrived today.
    I inserted the card into the n-gage only to find my PC doesn't wanna know it.
    The card shows up in "my computer" and it shows up on the fone.
    But when I connect the USB cable, my n-gage tells me the memory cards not inserted.
    Therefore, I cannot install any progs on it, which kinda defeats the purpose of
    owning the thing
    I've been on the net looking for an answer since 12pm today, still nothing.
    Yes this card is supported!
    Can somebody put me out my mysery before my n-gage makes a 3 story drop?

    Thank you very very much!!

    same problem

    Hello Lockstock,

    I have the same problem....Nokias software wants us to plug in the phone in a Com port, that is not USB, that is a serial connection, so something is definetively wrong here, it has nothing to do with your memory Card, since I have the problem with an original Nokia card!
    Have you found a solution to your (our) problem?
