Using Infrared port of Dell Latitude D600

Hi!
  My company recently gave me a new Dell Latitude D600 LapTop.
  It has an infrared port, but I don't seem to be able to use it.
  Can anybody please help me in installing/enabling the infrared port in Win XP prof.? I tried Add Hardware, but the port didn't come up in the list of devices with auto-search.
Thanks,
...Shu

ahh I have a D505 and had a similar problem, by default the IR port is disabled, you need to enter the BIOS when the laptop boots (it will prompt you which key to press to enter setup - when you first switch on) then navigate to the screen (using ctrl+p if i remember, but it tells you on the bottom of the screen)

till you can see the IR port settings change then from disabled to enabled, save the settings and exit, you can now set up the IR port normally :)
