Does anyone know if there are any BT dongles available that are guaranteed to work with Vista? I purchased one on TM that was supposed to work but after asking me to insert the disk that came with the device, Windows then says it was unable to find the drivers, followed by this...............

Problem caused by Bluetooth Service

This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between Windows Vista and Bluetooth Service.

Bluetooth Service is usually distributed by the company that manufactured your device or computer.

Note: If you bought Bluetooth Service from a retailer and installed it yourself, you will need to contact the manufacturer of Bluetooth Service.

Recommendation



To find out if a solution or an updated version of Bluetooth Service is available, contact your device or computer manufacturer.

 

Any help available? Dongle is blue and just has Bluetooth on it, seems very common on TM.

Thanks
