Connecting devices via bluetooth

Q: Connecting devices via bluetooth

Hi all! I have problems when i try to transfer files between my PC and other devices (mobile phones, PC's) via bluetooth.

I can send files normally but i cannot receive them. When I try to receive, the connection just fails. Do you have any idea what might be the problem and how to solve it? Could it be something to do with serial ports? At the moment I am using different serial ports for sending and receiving (COM23 and COM24). How can I change the serial ports so that they would the same for sending and receiving..?
Or has it anything to do with serial ports?

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and my bluetooth device is Generic Bluetooth Radio manifactured by Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd.

Br,
John

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

New PC with bluetooth.  Can anyone provide guidance on how to use blue tooth with external speakers and send music from ITunes or other sources to them along with external speakers directly connected to the PC?  Is there a limit to the number of BT devices you can ouput to simultaneously.  I have a couple of bluetooth speakers in other rooms and would like to be able to play music from the PC to them. Thank you

Okay, so I don't really know if a solution is out there, but here is the situation I'm in. I only have one available USB port left which I am currently using for the Logitech Bluetooth dongle that came with my Logitech K750 solar keyboard. I would also like to attach my Samsung wep410 headset for Skype calls.

I have tried to discover the headset with and without Logitechs software installed with no luck. I then checked device manager, which does not show the dongle as a Bluetooth receiver/device. My assumption from that is that Logitech has it setup to only receive from their own devices.

Since I have no room for another dongle (and a hub isn't really ideal). Is there some way to force the dongle to detect normal Bluetooth devices? I've searched for a custom driver or other work around with no luck so far. This is on a computer running Windows 7 64bit.

Windows 7 Professional 32bit, Gigabyte x86 PC.

Windows bluetooth discovery is not finding any devices. On my android phone I can turn on discovery and locate the PC, and it prompts me to enter the passcode on the PC. However no devices show up.

I have tried three different USB dongles and installed the generic Windows bluetooth driver. (One of the devices prompted me for a different driver which was downloaded and installed, but then the radio was not recognized) I've tried three different devices as well (a mouse, a trackpad, and the android phone).

I've installed "Bluetooth Command Line Tools" and it tells me that the radio is installed and working properly, as does the Windows device manager. Bluetooth icon shows in the system tray when the dongle is plugged in.

I've changed the settings in services.msc as detailed in other posts (changing to local account with my username and password).

I've turned off firewall and antivirus, no change.

Constructive ideas, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. I can't just throw it out the window, though, as this is a work computer. All I want to do is add a Bluetooth trackpad.

A:No bluetooth devices found, but other devices find the PC.

I've just installed BlueSoliel (trail version which will expire in 30 days) and now all my devices can pair and connect.

At this point it appears to be a Windows software / driver issue. I'd really like to track this down and fix it myself, I don't mind actually paying for the BlueSoliel software but I'm stubborn about 'stupid computer problems'.

I have bought a Bluetooth keyboard for my PC (running a Windows 7 64bit OS) and while I am able to successfully install and pair the device, I find that each time I either switch off the device (or PC) and switch either back on again I cannot re-establish the connection unless I remove the device and re-install and pair it once more? Surely it isn't necessary to have to follow this procedure every time I wish to use it...or is it? Any helpful ideas would be much appreciated.

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.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct forum, but I've got a question about bluetooth devices. This is gonna be a really dumb one. I have a newer laptop here that is wireless. In other words, I have a router and a small wireless network set up. I have the little blue button that lights up at the top of the keyboard. Is that bluetooth? I also have a wireless printer with that same icon lit up blue.

I have a new cellphone that is bluetooth and I want to make the phone and computer talk to each other to transfer pictures. I read that I need to go to "Bluetooth Devices" in the Control Panel to get things set up. However, I don't see that selection. So, do I have bluetooth or not?

According to Dell, these are the specs for your wireless card.  As you can see, there is nothing to show that your wireless card has any Bluetooth capability.  Without more information, I cannot say why you would have a "Bluetooth Devices file" in your Control Panel.  Should you want me to look into this further, please post screenshots of your Control Panel and Device Manager windows.

I'm on 8.1 with all updates installed. My Asus Zenbook does not support Windows 10 (I tried but had to revert because no drivers available for some functions. Asus does not rate my Zenbook as 10 compatible.) Anyway I am having problems with Bluetooth mouse. The only way to get it to work is to set mouse to pairing mode, select unpair the mouse in windows, then it pops up and select pair. It will now work fine until I restart the computer then must repeat process. There are 2 devices listed as paired for Bluetooth.If I select unpair for either or both it will not unpair them. It's like I need to clean bluetooth and start over. I do not want to reinstall windows because it is such a pita to get Asus drivers and reinstall software. Is there any other way. to get the old bluetooth devices to unpair? I have a feeling if they would completely unpair and be gone that when I pair again the mouse may work normally.

On "The Screensavers" last night they mentioned that when tou connect ide devices put both hard drives on the same cable because the two devices will run only at the speed of the slower drive. Is this so ? I assume that this just means when they are in use! What speed are we then talking about with two hard drives teh Uma 33/66 etc?
 

A:connecting IDE devices

It 's the maximum transfer speed of the bus of the HD. If you have a newer HD with a greater transfer rate connected on the bus with an older slower drive, the new drive will only transfer data at the slower rate as the computer cannot autoswitch the transfer rate dependent upon which drive it's attempting to access on the same bus (channel). Moving the new drive to another bus (channel) should allow for the drive to operate at it's nominal transfer rate. Of course this is also dependent upon the MB manufacturer and BIOS.

I have seen a few printers that have USB and Wifi connections, I have also seen a small point and shoot digital camera that transfered it's pictures via wifi instead of bluetooth. Is bluetooth being phased out? Does this mean bluetooth is dieing? I know that wifi has a higher data transfer rate so it's more convenient but I can't imaging a wifi mouse or a wifi earphone.

A:Some devices are usinf Wifi instead of bluetooth

Bluetooth isn't dying, but is becoming something more integrated. Some speculate that cars will use it instead of internal cabling (bad idea if you ask me).
This article
another article

But wifi is better for some applications, as it allows the device to get inside a network and communicate with any device inside that network (so it's why wifi is pretty prevalent in printers along the Ethernet interface), while bluetooth is usually used for a temporary very-short-range connection between two devices. So you get bluetooth operated smart locks, sensors and other stuff that would make no sense to put on Wifi.

Why not? They are just different data transfer protocols over radio waves.

In the add a device menu, the HC-05 name can clearly be seen but when the device is selected to open it just continues to load to no avail. And of course, the Bluetooth is on, I have verified that. It is not the module because I have two modules and cannot connect to either. And my friends my friends can connect.  Another detail:Because I was doing this for a project for someone who may not have integrated Bluetooth, I also purchased a Bluetooth dongle and connected to the HC-05 using the dongle and was able to connect using that.

Hello

I've had a problem with my bluetooth keyboard and mouse for quite some time now. The problem is that they disconnect and then won't reconnect. This usually happens after the computer has been inactive for about an hour or so, but it varies. Occasionally they have disconnected while I've been using them, but this is a rare occurence.

The problem comes when I try to use the mouse after it has been idle for a while. Usually clicking the left mouse button brings it out of sleep mode and the light comes on at the bottom, but in the occasions where it does not work nothing happens. The computer for some reason still considers it to be connected; I have a program called BluetoothView which shows the last time connected, and this is continuously updated even when I can no longer use the mouse.

I'm running Windows XP SP2. My bluetooth adapter, as well as the keyboard and mouse, are all manufactured by Belkin.

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance!
