Bluetooth Dongle Connection Problem to Old System

  gee-cee-bee 13:55 21 Jan 2006

Hi all, I have a Pentium II, 233 running Windows 98 (original). I have a Safecom (Bluesoleil) Bluetooth dongle which seems to have installed correctly. I'm using USB 1.0 and the dongle is supposed to work with 98 and USB 1.0.

Bluesoleil window keeps showing error message- "Please insert a bluetooth device", and when I search for a device on my Motorola V550 it keeps coming up with "no devices found".

Anyone know what I need to do or a driver I need to download to get it to work? (I took the dongle back to the shop and it tested fine).
Thanks, gee-cee-bee

Is it windows 98SE you have or windows 98 as I think there are some issues with usb and windows pre 98SE.

Hi Totally-braindead, thanks for that - it's just the original Windows 98.

I've got the USB to work with my Flash drives, but had to download drivers.
