How to transfer files between Bluetooth-enabled devices

You can use the Bluetooth File Exchange application to transfer files between Bluetooth-enabled devices.

  1. Drag the file you want to copy onto the Bluetooth File Exchange icon, located in the Utilities folder, inside the Applications folder on your hard disk.
  2. Click Search in the Send Files dialog to find the Bluetooth-enabled devices in range, select the name of the device you want to send files to in the list, then click Send.
  3. If you need to enter a passkey, enter it and click Respond. You may need to enter the same passkey on the other Bluetooth device. You may also need to click Accept on the Bluetooth device, depending how it is set up.

If there are no devices available, make sure they are in "discoverable" mode. To make your computer discoverable, select Discoverable in the Settings tab of the Bluetooth preferences pane.
