Windows 7: Browse files on phone using Bluetooth

Browse files on phone using Bluetooth

On my Vista 64 bit laptop I'm able to browse files on my Motorola Hint using Bluetooth 2.1 However on my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit netbook, I don't have that option. Both are using Widcomm Bluetooth software and both are Bluetooth 2.1.

Notice the difference in operating systems from the attachments.

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that Widcomm/Broadcom don't have any updated Windows 7 drivers.

Has anyone been able to successfully browse files from their phone using the Widcomm/Broadcom Bluetooth stack? Is there another Bluetooth stack that works better?

Much Thanx

Got it to work!

All I had to do was uninstall the Widcomm Bluetooth Software, reboot, then reinstall the Widcomm software. Evertything is working fine now.
