I am attempting to connect a mobile phone to my computer. On the Bluetooth Devices icon in Control Panel I am unable to 'turn discovery on' (in options). The message 'Settings not Saved' appears detailing discoverability and connection. I am operating on a Pentium 4 system with Windows XP and SP2.

Do you have a bluetooth icon in your system tray?

You should be using this and then utilizing the bluetooth places folder to find and connect the device and then discover available services with that device.

If you don't have that icon, your missing the Widcomm stack, which you need before bluetooth functionality will happen. Search your manufacturer website for these drivers.

I do have an icon in my systems tray showing my Belkin Bluetooth Device (working correctly) and a Bluetooth Bus Enumerator (also appears to be working OK). My problem is the options tab (Bluetooth Devices Control Panel) which prevents me from making devices discoverable.
