I have an Aladin Prime computer and can't find an IRDA dongle that works for my macbook. I see my MacBook has a a built in IR device - how can I use that to receive my dive data?.

The IR port on a MacBook is only used for communication with an Apple Remote.  It is not a true IRDA port and does not allow for data transmission using that medium.

The Aladin Prime is a dive computer, right?  If that's true, I've been doing some googling and this seems interesting:

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks for the info on the inbuilt irport. I had read those linsk you referred and many more. Seems some people have managed to find a solution with a compatable IRDA so I will persue that line some more.
