After over 12 hours of meddling with D-Link's DBT-120, I've finally got it to connect to my computer properly. Now I have my remaining problem: how to get audio over the DBT120 and onto the HBH602.

I have the Bluetooth devices applet in my Control Panel, but I don't have any bluetooth icons on my desktop. I don't know if this is normal. Also, I can't set Bluetooth audio in the Sounds and Audio devices applet.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Geekzone. You should have a Bluetooth icon on the Desktop if using Widcomm or IVT Bluesoleil drivers. If you are using the native Windows drivers the Bluetooth icon will be on the Control Panel only.

Also, the headset connection is not possible if using the Microsoft native drivers.

If you have a Bluetooth icon in the system tray, then right-click it, and see if you have an Advanced Configuration option or Display. If not you are probably using the Microsoft native driver.

Ok, I just realized that I had forgotten to install the actual software that came with my Bluetooth dongle.

After installing these drivers, I get the Widcomm bluetooth icon to show up, but when I right click it, I only get the option to Start Using Bluetooth, and nothing else. After click that button, I get the following error message:

Your bluetooth license does not include use with this bluetooth device [6]


Upon clicking OK, I get an Open dialog, asking me to locate my license.dat. Even upon locating the right license.dat file, nothing happens.

What am I doing wrong? Is there a way I can talk to you using a much faster method (e.g.: MSN messenger, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger)? If not please advise further here.

Thanks in advance.

Even after installing the software, the system is still using the Windows native drivers. You can try manually changing the drivers. Check in our Bluetooth Guides for the article on how to do this.

Ok...now I see what I was doing wrong all this time: I was installing the default DBT-120's drivers, when I needed the WIDCOMM drivers.

Now, where do I find these WIDCOMM drivers? (preferably somewhere that doesn't store it on an FTP, because I can't access FTPs.)

Well, I found a Widcomm v. 4.0.1.2101 driver set, but that does not work, because when I click pretty much anything bluetooth related, it give's me:

No local bluetooth device was detected.

The guide in your guide section asks for a 1.4.2.10, which is very old. What I'm wondering is, which one should I use, the one in you guide, or the latest ones (which doesn't seem to work).

Either way, can you post me a link of the recommended drivers?

Thanks in advance.

The "default DBT-120's drivers" are what you need. When I say native it means the ones that Windows XP SP2 provides - these are absolutely no good for what you want.

Any other driver downloaded from the Internet (unless it's from the DBD-120 support site) are wrong.

What I meant before is to follow instructions from the Bluetooth Guides, more specifically these instructions, using the DBT-120 drivers.

Now, you can try removing all the Bluetooth stuff, reboot two times, and check those instructions. If it doesn't work (it happens a lot with D-Link) I suggest you get a Belkin.

I've got this adapter to work on an Acer laptop (1714SMi) but it doesn't work with my current laptop (SONY VGN-FS28GP). As far as I remember, all I did was download teh default WIDCOMM drivers.

I tried with the D-Link drivers, and they don't work. I even called up their tech support, and they said that there is no support for XP SP2. :(

I really need to get the WIDCOMM drivers. Any idea where I can get them?

Ok, nevermind, I just got it to work.

What I did was install the latest WIDCOMM drivers with the instruction provided in the BT guide. After installing those, I just update the drivers to the ones I should have for the DBT 120.

Oh, only one question remains: where can I find the WIDCOMM drivers? I always have to go and search for a needle in a haystack. Could you guys maybe host the files here, or something? The file is called widcomm.exe and is 43 mb. I could send it to you (don't know how, as there is a firewall in my uni, blocking FTP and Bittorrents) or I'll try and find the link for you.

Ah, yes. I got it off of rapidshare. This should be the latest driver: http://rapidshare.de/files/6721472/Widcomm.exe.html

Good to know it's working with the manual change of drivers...

We can't host the files here because there would be copyright issues with that.
