    May be a silly question, but how to connect my Lumia to a PC via bluetooth? I don't mean sending/accepting a file (which works btw). but simply connecting the PC via bluetooth so that I can browse my contents on sd card. I have tried the traditional way, you know, turn on bluetooth on both sides, and then connect, it doesn't work. The status shows "connected" for like one second and then turns to "not connected". Could somebody help me plz? I don't wanna carry my usb cable around, and charge my phone everytime I connect it to a PC just for copying some MP3s.

    Thank you!
