    I bought a Creative D-100 wireless speaker about a year ago. It connects via Bluetooth and worked fine (at first) with my Desktop PC, using a Medialink USB dongle. However, after a few months, it no longer connects to the speaker. When I open Bluetooth Control, I see the Creative D-100, but when I click on "Connect," it acts as if it wants to connect, but after a second or two, tells me I am disconnected. I re-paired the speaker, but still, no connection.

    A friend, on a recommendation from me, bought a D-100, but was unable to connect from the start. I also bought one as a gift that can't connect to the recipient's PC. All three USB dongles were from a different manufacturer. However, in each case, Windows 7 was the OS.

    The speaker connects effortlessly to my Google tablet with built-in Bluetooth. My diagnostic skills are exhausted. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm bumping this back to the top of the pile in the hopes someone can help me.
