Windows 7: Bluetooth Peripheral Device Driver

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Here's a link to HP's bluetooth peripheral device driver:

Software & Driver Downloads HP G72-b27CL Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Once you get there expand Network Drivers. It's the second driver file.

I'm still downloading it as I write this but wanted to post it right away.

Here's what I did when bluetooth on Windows 7 PCs that I had, didn't work with my iPhone:

- Download the 'Windows Mobile Device Center' ( current version is 6.1 ) which you can download it from Download details: Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 for Windows Vista (32-bit)
this works for both Vista and Windows 7. I've tried it on both.

- Install the downloaded software but it may not look like it worked on Windows 7 PCs. Vista automatically configures the settings on the bluetooth devices but for those who have Windows 7, here are the things you should do:

- Go to 'Device Manager' from 'Control Panel' -Or- just right-click on Computer Icon and choose 'Properties' and then click on 'Device Manager'.

- You'll see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'

- Right-Click it and click on "Update Driver Software" -Or- anyway you find it easy to bring up the Update driver window.

- Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" button.

- Click "Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on my computer".

- Select 'Bluetooth Radio' from the list if it asked you to select and then in the next window, it will show a list of drivers with Company Names in one list and Drivers in another. In the Company List choose 'Microsoft Corporation', not only Microsoft.

- From the drivers list there may be one or more drivers with the name "Windows Mobile-Based Device Support" with different driver versions. Select one or the latest.

- Ignore any warnings and keep pressing next and then Finish at last. If all goes well, the last screen will show the message that device driver is successfully installed.

Now, after manually updating the driver for your bluetooth device, in 'Device Manager' when you click on 'Bluetooth Radios', it should display one more item which will say 'Windows Mobile-based device support'.

There are few more things that you want to pay attention to. If you have already added the device in your 'bluetooth device list' that didn't work, then remove the device and add it again. After you add it, you might need to restart the computer if it gave you a connection problem error message.

Every PCs that had Windows 7 and Vista worked after installing this software and I hope it will work for you too.

Hey Rajiv,

I tried but it doesn't seem to work.
The drivers would all install correctly, but every time I remove my bluetooth device, and re-add a bluetooth device, the same drivers with the exclamation would appear in my device manager.

Also, my see devices show my bluetooth headset as a unspecified bluetooth peripheral device.

Any troubleshooting ideas?

This works for most of the PCs running Windows7 and Vista.

I tried your process for installing Mobile Device Center onmy Win 7 64-bit DESKTOP system (I found the 64-bit link) and it appeared to install (I had to unplug then re-plug my device and re-do the install) but there were no manufacturers (except D-link) listed when I got to "let me pick from a list". Only the Generic radio and Generic adapter. I chose the Generic Adapter and then got the window in the attached screen shot. The radio does not recognize my MS BT mouse. The adapter is a Kensington BT Micro Adapter. I have also edited the bth.ini file and inserted these lines:

[Kensington... ]
Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_0A12&Pid_0001&Rev_4839
Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter= BthUsb, USB\Vid_0A12&Pid_0001
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I also had a problem with "Peripheral Device" (Mobile Phone) but I found what was causing it

2: Go To: Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers
3: Right click on your device-Properties-Services-Uncheck Nokia Sync ML(Server,Client)
4: Click Apply and OK.

I hope this will help

I found THIS solution to the non-connection:
go to the Bluetooth Services and uncheck the LOGON parameter from Logon as: LOCAL SYSTEM and instead, "use this account". Type in LOCAL SERVICE then remove the 2 passwords. Stop and restart the service and BINGO! It works. Thanks to user David00000090 on the Windows Answers site.
