Connecting my Bluetooth mobile

  happyhotspur 09:46 04 Nov 2010

Hi My laptop is not bluetooth enabled so I purchased one of these mini USB Bluetooth gadgets, but when I plug it into the USB port and the driver software loads up it tells me that the device is a bluetooth radio. When I try to find my bluetooth enabled mobile it cannot find it. I know I purchased the correct thing at PC World but I really don't understand what is going on.

It did at first recognise that there was a bluetooth phone but when I tried to marry the two up it would not find the phone.

Anybody got any idea's or will I have to purchase a cable to connect the phone to the laptop.

I am running windows 7
