I bought a Blue-Gene Bluetooth USB Adaptor BT-30U from Newegg.
this one
and because I'm still running Win2k3 the drivers on the CD wouldn't install, so I went through the guide at I get the normal white on blue icon in the tray.
But I still get "No local Bluetooth device detected" and I can't connect to anyhting, not my Sony Ericsson T610 nor my HBH-60 headset.

I tried to install the software that came on the CD on my roomates laptop just to make sure, but that is giving me the same problem.

I don't know what to do????

It's not clear on your post if you're running Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Server. All current drivers should install just fine on Windows 2000. If you are running Windows Server 2003 then you'll need to download the latest drivers directly from the manufacturer, or return this dongle and buy another one that supports Windows Server 2003.

Another thing to check is if this dongle is not faulty. You can return it and get another one from the same brand to test.
