hi fellas,
old thread but ill dig it ot as i struggled to get a CSR Bluetooth dongle to work.
I tried the tips on this topic here but had no USB dongle on the list to install new drivers.Instead my Bluetooht dongle was listet under Bluetooth items.Problem was it wasnt workig no more on win7 after updates.

i clicked on it and reinstalled drivers->select search drivers on PC and add it as a "bluetooth radio" worked for me.
I knew this was the right choice as it was listed like this before the windows updates (2 items actally under bluetooh->Generic Bluetooth radio,Microsoft Bluetooth List) something like that.
That basically fixed the issue.

davewebb8211's solution WORKS

I was able to restore my uninstalled Bluetooth adapter.

Re: CSR adapters
Windows 8.1: success, I can now use the APTX function with my MEELECTRONICS AirFi Matrix-2 headphones -> outstanding fidelity
Windows 7: nothing but heartache - my advice: don't waste days - forget it

I have also have a CSR cheapo bluetooth adapter and it shows up in windows 8.1 with generic 2006 microsoft drivers. When I try to pair a Kinivo bluetooth headset I get the prompt to pair but it's never successful. I get the error that passcode isn't right or make sure your headset is discoverable. The headset doesn't have a passcode per the instruction manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Hi, I'll try to help you. 1. My successful CSR BT install was on a desktop without an inbuilt BT receiver - if you have eg. a laptop with an inbuilt BT adapter I can't help you. 2. Remove all BT radios and drivers via device manager 3. Install the CSR BT drivers - my adapter came with a driver CD 4. Reboot 5. Check in device manager that the CSR BT radio is installed AND there are no other BT radios OR BT drivers 6. Double click the BT icon, search for your headphones, when found pair and you should be good to go. If there are errors installing the CSR drivers / device enumerators - I suggest you get another BT adapter eg, ASUS, kill the CSR radio / drivers in device driver and enjoy a trouble free life. CSR's BT adapters are great if you can install them (they support APTX headphones for astonishing audio), if you can't it's better to cut your losses quickly and move on.

Thanks for your reply! I'm running on a desktop w/o BT receiver so everything fits. My dongle didn't come with drivers or they're long gone. Do you know a reputable site where I can get some CSR drivers? Their web page didn't seem to have any.

CSR and driver

Hi, first up I recommend that you think through what you are trying to do. If you want to use APTX (if you have APTX compliant headphones) you will have to use a CSR based BT adapter. Else you are just trying to use a BT adapter. You need to seriously consider how much hassle you are willing to put up with for a BT adapter which new, with BT 4.0 and software, costs USD4 delivered from EBay. There are other CSR BT 4.0 adapters which claim that they are plug and play If you are really stubborn you can search EBay for BT dongles and select one which has a download link eg. Mini USB Bluetooth CSR V4 0 Dongle Dual Mode Wireless Adapter for Windows 8 7 XP | eBay - this should download the CSR Harmony installation software.

Your advice is spot on...$5 for a new dongle shipped from Chicago. Thanks mate!

CSR Download License Expired problem FIXED FINALLY!

You would not believe the forums I've searched through to fix the problem with my CSR 8510 A10 dongle for bluetooth. Tried so many things wanted to shoot myself. Always said license expired download newer version I would choose yes but never worked. While I was trying to remove and reinstall for the 100th time I happen to notice the driver said Realtek. Only Realtek I knew of was under network adapters. I opened the tree under network adapters in device manager right clicked realtek and choose to update drivers just for the heck of it. Then I chose scan for hardware changes and BAM. CSR installed and started working. I did remove CSR in Device Manager under bluetooth first. Checked the box to remove all software if I remember right that was the options.
Kept dongle in the whole time. So it's your network adapter that lets this work properly. To get to device manager go to start and type device manager. Yea!!!! This has been a nightmare.
