Why won't this sum evaluate?

In[120]:= $Version Out[120]= "7.0 for Mac OS X x86 (32-bit) (January 30, 2009)" In[122]:= Sum[c^n/(1 + c^(2*n)), {n, 1, Infinity}] Out[122]= -(1/4) + 1/4 EllipticTheta[3, 0, c]^2 In[123]:= Sum[c^n/(1 + c^(2*n)), {n, 0, Infinity}] Out[123]= (won't simplify) The only thing different in the two sums is that the second sum is from 0 to Infinity rather than 1 to Infinity. Clearly, the n=zero term is 1/2. I have tried various Regularizations and Methods, (not exhaustively) but none seem to work on either of the sums, much less the last. A side problem - Is there a way to determine what Regularization and Method were used when none were specified? Thanks
