Hey geeks, got real problems trying to get bluetooth on my DiNovo Media Desktop 2.0 to work.

Here's the deal:

My keyboard, mouse and mediapad works perfectly. But when trying to install the Setpoint 3.30 from Logitech (with the Widcomm BT drivers), I get that message saying "Please insert your bluetooth device and press OK" (or whatever the message is). So I click OK a couple of times, since my Bluetooth Hub is connected, yet it doesn't work. It only installs as a "Generic USB Hub".
Since it has worked before (don't know why it stopped working) I search the internet for answers and find your site with millions of tips. So I try the following:

1. Reseting the Hub by unplugging it and then plugging it back in while holding in the connect-button.
2. Uninstalling the software, unplugging the hub and installing the software with the hub still unplugged (manually installing the widcomm-software included). Then plugging it back after reboot. Still installs as "Generic USB Hub".
3. Removing the M$ Buetooth Stack files in Windows/system32/drivers and reconnecting the Hub. Still no change.
4. Manually changing the driver for the "Generich USB Hub". Since it won't work I add the Hardware-ID to the btwusb.inf-file found in the Widcomm/drivers-folder. It installs as a Bluetooth Wireless Hub, but stops working.
5. Beer. Works for me, yet no bluetooth.

So, what i'm I missing here? Feels like i've tried everything now. The Widcomm tray only gives me "No bluetooth devices were found".

The Hardware-ID for my Hub is USB\VID_0451&PID_2036&Rev_0101 if that helps in any way.

Anyways, thanks for a great forum. It still is the only place where you can actually find some kind of help for this.

Welcome to Geekzone... First make sure your device is not using the Windows Bluetooth software instead... If after reading the link and following the instructions it still doesn't work, check that the USB port is actually working ok - and make sure you are not using a USB Hub.

thanks for a fast reply.

i tried the steps explained in that article, yet i couldn't get the switch of drivers to work. I have tried to plug
the hub into different usb ports, yet still nothing. I don't really understand the last thing you asked me,
but i know it's a bluetooth wireless hub since i have got it working with bluetooth before. then after an update
of the setpoint software i couldn't get it to work again. now it doesn't recognize the hub as an bluetooth hub, just
an generic usb hub.
