Bluetooth dongle compatible with LG GW520

  Border View 11:24 17 Nov 2009

Looking for a recommendation for a Bluetooth dongle which will be compatible with my new mobile phone - LG GW520.

My current dongle and phone see each other, but file transfer is unsuccessful - something about wrong protocol. This is on both music and photographs.

I run with XP Home SP3.

Perhaps its not the dongle. Seeking advice here.

When I try to transfer files - music or photographs. I can get the mobile phone to communicate with the laptop via bluetooth but when I try to transfer files I get the message "An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used". The transfer failed.

Any suggestions?

Its not the phone. Same thing is happening with my old Motorola which I know used to work with bluetooth.

There again its a bluetooth dongle which is about four years old, so perhaps I need a new one, they are cheap enough.

Most disappointed at the total lack of response to this thread.

For those who might be interested, or even read this thread, I bought a new dongle which worked perfectly.

Thank you for reading the thread, I hope it helps others in the future.
