Windows 7: Bluetooth headset issue

05 Dec 2009   #1

Win 7 Ultimate x64
Bluetooth headset issue

Hopefully someone will be able to help solve this, because I am stumped. I bought a rocketfish USB bluetooth adapter almost a year ago now. I also got a Motorola H15 bluetooth headset at the same time. Everything worked fine in XP and even when I had W7 RC, I used the headset as a mic for ventrillo, teamspeak, etc.

I recently built a new rig a month ago and have W7 ultimate x64 installed.
The USB adapter was installed fine by windows itself and I updated to the newest driver online. I turned the headset on and the adapter found the device. W7 is now asking for a driver in order for the headset to work though. I don't remember it ever doing that before in XP or W7 RC.

W7 can not find a driver for the headset, even if I tell it to look online. I don't think there is even a "driver" for this, because it works off the adapter by pairing it.

any thoughts?

For Bluetooth headsets, you normally need too install the driver and software that comes with the headset. If windows update is having a tough time finding drivers, try visiting the manufacturer website. After you install, use the software to manage pairing, then configure the sound output properly and it should work fine.
