Windows 7: Bluetooth streaming sound playback error

Bluetooth streaming sound playback error

Hello All,

I have recently begun using Windows 7. Previously I was using Vista Home Premium.

I have a Belkin Bluetooth adapter F8T016 and used to stream music to a bluetooth speaker.

Since installing Windows 7 I cannot stream the music. Initially my Broadcom driver would not connect to the speaker. I therefore installed the Anycom Bluetooth USB2 Vista driver as suggested in this thread:

Belkin F8T016 Mini-USB Bluetooth Dongle

Now my laptop and speaker connect properly (I can see it is connected in the bluetooth property settings and physically through the 'connected' LED on the speaker.

My problem now is that the device will not playback sound. When I try to perform the 'test' in the audio device properties I get the message "Error: Cannot perform test sound".

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
