Windows 7: Cannot receive files via Bluetooth - various phones, PDAs

18 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Cannot receive files via Bluetooth - various phones, PDAs

Using Win 7 Home Premium and until recently everything was working fine. My last file exchange via my Nokia E72 and my Sony Vaio VGN-FWseries was about 2 months ago (Oct. 2011). Then today I tried again and it won't work. To check I tried to send also files via my Samsung Galaxy Tab and it did not work. Analysis: When pairing it does not find drivers for Bluetooth Peripheral device - all other pairing steps work fine.
What happened ? A WIN 7 update ?
P.S.: I do not have Bluetooth software which tells me with right click send files receive files.
I read many threads in various portals but none of them applied to my problem.

After all Bluetooth is such a fragile technology that it is basically useless to me. Now it also happens that it is fragile with WIN 7.
