Some items need the software installed before you plug it in. I don't know if this is the case with this item, I suggest you have a look at the manual. If you didn't get a manual have a look on the disk as its probably on there.

Like Totally-braindead said install software before you plug it in ;-)

So even with the bluetooth dongle not plugged in it won't install the software but it would install on a friends PC. Puzzling. I don't suppose theres a sinificant difference between your PC and you mates, such as different operating system, he has USB 2.0 and you have USB 1.1 or anything like that thats different.

Failing that I think you will need to say exactly what it says when it comes up with the error in order to trace whatever the fault is.
