The 770 requires that a device which it is pairing with has either 
Dial-up Networking (DUN) or OBEX File Transfer (FTP) profiles in its SDP 
server. In your case you'd want to have a FTP service record on your 
windows machine. Why it's not there (maybe you forgot to enable ftp 
support) or how to get it there I cannot answer (and it also depends on 
which bluetooth host stack you're running on your PC).

You can make the 770 discoverable (until the next reboot) by installing
xterm, becoming root and issuing the command "hciconfig hci0 piscan", 
though that wont help you to get FTP working if the PC doesn't have a 
service record for it.
