Windows 7: Win 7, Bluetooth & Nokia N95 8GB phone.

Win 7, Bluetooth & Nokia N95 8GB phone.

Hi, I'm new to these forums, hope some one can advise.

I have just installed the new RC version of Win 7 and getting to grips with it and along the way discovering which software or existing applications will run on/with the new OS, so far not that many problems and Win 7 has XP mode/virtulisation, a very good application but something to be wary of IMO.

My problem lays with my Nokia N 95 8gb phone.

There are no more firmware updates for my phone, but I use the Nokia software to make back ups of my phone contents to my PC, again no problems, under Windows XP home or under Win 7.

I have the most recent Nokia software but am running into problems under Win 7, my Belkin bluetooth dongle and my phone can no longer find each other.

What I do get sometimes is a window informing me some Bluetooth peripheral is missing or can't be found, basically there are some drivers missing but I'm not sure if it's in the nokia software/updater or Win 7, iIf I try to update drivers, I can't boxes are greyed out.

The next issue and I guess connected to the above and a lot more troublesome for me is I use my phone a lot as a camera and upload my pictures using a Belkin Bluetooth dongle, never had a problem until today,

I can not get the phone to recognise or connect to the dongle or vice versa under WIN 7, I cannot transfer a photo from my phone to my PC using Bluetooth, the phone informs me of a failed connection.

The dongle firmware has been updated.

Not a problem I thought, I'll install and run the original dongle software and the original Nokia PC suite software in Win 7 XP mode,( which is XP pro ), nothing doing, I'm running in to the same brick wall and problem.

This has surprised me a bit as everything worked great under my old OS, XP Home.

I have looked at the Nokia forums, no joy, although there does appear to be issues.

Where does the problem lay, can I get my Nokia phone/ bluetooth to run under WIN 7 or in XP mode?

Try this,

Go to Control panel/Administrative Tools/Service
Then find "Bluetooth Support Service" and then change start-up type from Manual to Automatic.
Restart pc and then see if Windows 7 find your phone.

Can't you do it with the cable that came with your nokia? I had one of those phones until I found myself charging the battery at least twice a day. Good phones crap batteries.

You could try with the cable until the software is fixed.

Well,

I think u should give more details about your hardware ...

I have a IVT Bluetooth ... driver is pre-istalled with Windows 7 RC & it send/recieves with my N73 phone ... No problem with me ...

OR, you need to check for a newer version of your Nokia PC Suite ...

I should have mentioned no problem with the cable, and yes an OK phone, rubbish battery but fixed that some time ago with a larger battery pack, now get four days, full charge, full use of all applications, best 12-00 on a battery I ever spent.

I apologies Junkieweb, I was trying to be brief.

The hardware is a Nokia 95 8gb and Belkin Bluthtooth Dongle model F8T012.

I have the latest software suite and firmware for the phone, as I wrote there are no further firmware updates available for my phone

I still not quite sure wher the issue is, the Nokia, Win 7 or the Dongle.

What I did do was E-mail Belkin who told me that at the moment or the foreseeable future there are no plans to release a 64 bit driver for this dongle or any other of their dongles.

Many BT dongles will not work with 64 bit OSs systems I believe.

So quite an expensive 32 bit Dongle has been rendered useless.

Also, I am under the impression the Win 7 RC has not shipped with any legacy Bluetooth drivers either.

So I'm stuck with a cable but have yet to try and transfer pictures, via Phone to PC.

I Googled to see if I could find a dongle that will definitely work with Vista 64 bit, spoke to some companies, nothing doing.

Do you know of a brand/model.
