    Hey guys, i've been having an issue with my bluetooth dongle and my Windows XP home! ...the bluetooth generic driver is installed fine and works perfectly. But! when i try to sync my phone with Nokia pc suite it doesn't work because the driver for this device is missing :confused: ...the exact error msg i get is:

    "There was a problem installing this hardware"
    "Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI)"
    "An error occurred during the installation of the device"
    "The parameter is incorrect"

    i tried searching for the driver, but all my searches lead to the windows update page! my LAPTOP is up to date and everything else is latest "drivers" ...can anyone please lend me a helping hand with this one? btw, this device's ID is: (BTH\MS_RFCOMM\6&2F04E4A5&5&0) i'll post a screen shot of the error am getting!...

    Thanx in advance :)

    Sounds like it may be one of those cheap csr adapters.
    In the device manager,right click the generic bluetooth
    adapter and click update driver.
    Let windows search automatically.
    It may pull the csr driver from windows update and then
    install aditional drivers.

    hey, thanx for the reply! apparently its detected on windows 7 as CSR bluetooth radio...and as for the RFCOMM protocol, its detected and installed fine :S i did some more google-ing, and other sources suggested that i install the driver as a Widcomm bluetooth device! only then everything would work fine!...am going to download the latest widcomm driver and test it out, hopefully everything would work out :) ...ohh, and when i try to let windows install the driver automatically, it just installs the same thing over again...lol,

    The widcomm stack wont detect the csr adapter and the
    toshiba stack won't work with it properly.
    Those csr adapters are just plain junk.
    I have tried 3 different types and could not get one of them
    to work properly.
    Plus,they don't come with complete driver software.
    I picked up a rocketfish edr 2.1 adapter on ebay
    and it is based on broadcom hardware and came with the widcomm
    stack software.
    It was $5.
    Might see if you can find one.
    Save yourself a lot of headaches.
    I have tried every available stack with those csr adapters,
    even BlueSoleil.
    I bought one like this........
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Rocketfish-Rf-Mrbtad-Micro-Bluetooth-Adapter-/140421294994?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20b1c2eb92
    If it comes with a cd,fine or find one with it.
    If not,you can download the latest wicomm driver from the broadcomm site.
