    Hey Guys

    just a quickie about Bluetooth software,

    I have a bluetooth dongle, that has it's own software, which i must say is bloated and causes my computer to say 'a network cable is unplugged' all the time, when it's not and everything works!

    So is there any free bluetooth software that will work with USB dongles, or any i harping on about something that can't be done :p

    I don't have that either on Windows XP Pro fully updated. You can swap files from say a phone and PC as long as the dongle is reconised. Sure you don't need any software as I had to help set it up on someone's laptop so it would talk to their D500.

    I'm sure we had it set as a network device. So it was located under 'Network Connections' and from there we could search for other bluetooth enabled devices in the area.
