Did the CLCD version of your MIDlet match the CLDC version of your pocket PC?

Hi,
I'm not sure about Samsung Z400, but normally to install MIDlet, you can do one of the following :
1.Using Bluetooth, just copy the .jar file to targetted device. (this is the easiest way)
2.Using Ir-Da
3.Using Cable
4.Upload the .jar file to a server, then point your cellphone's default browser to the URL of .jar file. (f.ex : http://yourSite.com/midlet/game.jar)

In some Samsung cellphones, we can't install MIDlet, unless it's signed by Samsung.
Hope that could help :)

I have copied the .jar file via USB cable, but when I tried to open it nothing hapened. The phone displayed a general icon for this type of file (like the PC displays for type FILE).
I am serching for a method different from OTA (I hope it exists :) )

Hi MichaelN,

Have you tried this : copy the .jad and also the .jar file to the same directory, then click just the .jad file.

I've read about other samsung type from wikipedia :
[i]"Java MIDlets can only be downloaded using GPRS via an online server, such as http://www.waphq.net which, although a free service still involves the service cost of the bandwidth to download. It is NOT officially possible to install Java MIDlets on the D600 via Bluetooth, IrDa, USB or Serial Cable."[/i]

But there's a hack for this thing if u still want to use bluetooth (althought it's made for D500, maybe you can try the same way) : http://315.fiberworld.nl/d500/

If it's still not working, then I'm afraid the only method for your Z400 is through OTA.

Hi man4mobile,

"Have you tried this : copy the .jad and also the .jar file to the same directory, then click just the .jad file."
Yes, I've tried, it says "Unrecognized filetype".

I think all I need is this kind of code: #*5737425# (this is provided in the link you gave me - but unfortunately is for d500) to enter the Java menu. I need one specific to z400.
