Iv just bought this bluetooth headset or headphones and it works perfectly for my ipod touch and phone, but for my laptop i cant get it to work. Right, well, it pairs easily and seems to be working but how would i get them to work. I think i must be missing something here.
ok iv got the control panel thing sorted (thanks!) but i went along to 'playback tab'. i have my main laptop speakers (HD audio device) which is set as a default device. I also have another speakers but this one with a headphone looking icon with 'bluetooth hands-free audio' underneath and 'working' underneath that.
Whenever i tried to connect my Gear4 Bluephones to my laptop i tried to set this headphone icon as a default device but im not recieving any music from them.
i want to also add that iv been going through all the available bluetooth settings on my laptop. I found under control panel > hardware and sounds > bluetooth devices > bluetooth settings and under 'audio' i found my device (Gear4 Bluephones) and tried to connect (bluetooth stereo audio) but it comes up with this error 'This parameter is incorrect' (in a window with the name 'BtwApplExt')
Hands-free audio is for use with things like VOIP (web based telephones). What you need is something to the effect of Bluetooth Stereo Audio to be active.
Ah right. I've just read your second post....that's the badger!
For your error, there's lots and lots of reports of similar problems. Your first port of call needs to be witht he Dell Support website to update your drivers. Also get the latest drivers for your Bluetooth from the manufacturers website.
There seems to be some reports that using the XP Bluetooth drivers from Dell may work better than the Vista drivers. Not sure if it'll work for you, but can't hurt to try!
