hello all,

I have an ISSC USB dongle which i want to use with my Nokia 3230. The dongle came packed with IVT Bluesoleil drivers which i never got to work with my phone - could'nt even detect services. then, after 3 days of searching i came across WIDCOMM. Drivers installed like a charm with the patch. But, i'm unable to use it . The tray icon goes red every now and then jus for a moment and PC Suite gets disconnected. Also, the hardware tab in Advanced Configuration reports no device found evey now and then. WTH is going on? Device manager reports 2 devices under bluetooth devices - ISSC USB Bluetooth Device and Bluetooth Bus Enumerator. It appears like the device is refreshing every now and then - icon goes green, then white and red(for an instant) - and the whole thing repeats every minute or so.

You installed an unsupported driver.

if the driver is wrong, how does it detect most of the time? this is what happens... PcSuite connects, stays connected for a while and then disconnects suddenly and just then the tray icon goes red momentarily before retirning to ble/white. also, in the device manager, the screen keeps refreshng every time this happens but reports no error. one more thing, Bluetooth Configuration in Control panel reports device not found, but if i refresh a couple of times, it re-dedects the device. why is this happening?

Unsupported drivers can do funny things. Namely because they are generally not designed for the software/hardware that you are running it on.

Its something that you run at your own risk.

I remember my older computer that has since been retired... it had a 2x CDROM drive with a special soundcard connector. Windows didn't support it natively (Note: Windows 95/98) so I had to load a DOS driver and use mscdex on boot (easy enough to run with autoexec.bat and config.sys but always painful when reinstalling).

Worked fine most of the time... most of the time.
