I have a bluetooth enabled laptop and have successfully connected to my Motorola V600 mobile phone via bluetooth as a remote device including the swapping of a pin code. My laptop even recognises the name I gave my Motorola bluetooth connection.
However, when I go into DISCOVER DEVICES on my laptop, the device status for my phone starts as GHOST then changes very breifly to CONNECTED then reverts back to NOT CONNECTED. Can someone please tell me if I'm connecting correctly and once I have connected, how do I transfer sound and picture files to my Morotola.

What Bluetooth software is used on the Toshiba Satellite? Is it Widcomm, BlueSoleil or XTNDConnect?

I looked on the Net at each of the software items you mentioned and checked their vendors software partners but none mentioned Toshiba I'm afraid.

Do you have a Bluetooth icon liek this in the System Tray? If yes, right-click it, and select Advanced Configuration. You should see the vendor and software version on the first tab.

Sorry I'm a bit of an amateur with web stuff so the image of my system tray icons didn't show up on that last reply! Basically, right-clicking gives me options to start the Bluetooth Service centre, and show device properties, it also shows something called Spanworks 2000 which is greyed out. The Buletooth Service Centre gives me a window with the status of the local, remote devices etc. device properties gives me some sort of device address but no advanced options I'm afraid. Sorry this isn't much help I expect!

It seems Toshiba is using some other software on this line of laptops. I've found a reference on this page. Perhaps they could you give more information?

Freitasm has good advice - I often have to change the settings in the advanced config to pair a new device with a friends Laptop PC.

Download the latest Toshiba Bluetooth Stack from the following URL:
http://aps.toshiba-tro.de/bluetooth/ Select "Download" item to see the availabe BT-stacks.

Turn of your Wireless switch on the notebook if you have internal Bluetooth.
(Power of your Bluetooth module by installed Bluetooth stack if possible)
Install the downloaded Bluetooth Stack. Reboot and turn on the wireless switch.
Start "Bluetooth Settings" from the "Bluetooth" program folder. It turns on BT.
Complete the installation. Now you should see an antenna icon in the sytem traybar at
the buttom of our desktop. Just double-click on it to start the wizard or use the mentioned
"Bluetooth-Settings". Make sure the your mobile phone is discoverable. Maybe you have
to turn this function on first at our mobile phone. Now just follow the wizard. It sould be very
easy to setup a DUN connection with it.
By the way there will be a big antenna icon on the desktop which you can use for file, picture or business card transfer.
If you use also WLAN than make sure that the sutiable antenna is on. Use the +
button to check if BT and WLAN antenna is on.
I assume you use Windows 2000 or XP.
