Belkin F8T016 Mini-USB Bluetooth Dongle

Hi, new to the forums. I just installed Windows 7 and I've gotten most everything to work except for this device. I tried running the installer off the disk and it would not connect to my headset.

Any suggestions?

You could try running the setup with compatibility mode.

Running setup in compatibility mode didn't help. The dongle would install successfully as far as I could tell but still would not pair with any audio devices. I remember Vista having this same problem.

Welcome to the forums!

I highly recommend BlueSoleil DL their software, reboot, then insert your device.

Thanks. I just uninstalled everything. So in this case, I would reinstall first? or would I get BlueSoleil first?

If it uses Broadcom it WON'T work with Bluesoleil.

S9 works as a headset, not as a stereo audio - exacly the same as in Vista on my lappy... So give this drivers a try ftp://drivers.anycom.com/drivers/blu...6-1-0-4700.exe.

Good night everyone
