I have configed the Logitech BT mobile express headset to connect to my Libretto running win2k using Belkin F8T001 ver2.
Pais up ok, set audio sound using Bluetooth Audio Device. When running media player, I only get the sound come through for 3-4 second and drops off.
I disconnect and reconnect, it do the samething the sound plays for couple second and dies.

It works fine on another sony Vaio Laptop with win2k.

anyone have the same problem in a slower machine; say a 233MHz Toshiba Libretto like mine.
BTW the belkin BT dongle connected to my Libretto through a pcmcia buslink usb adaptor.

Welcome to Geekzone... In my experience, depending on the software used the Bluetooth audio will drop if the CPU goes over a certain number (95% in some cases), even if it's for a second.

Another thing to check is the power for this USB adaptor - since it's a PCMCIA card it may not have enough power for it to work. OR perehaps the OS is configured to reduce the power for saving. You should be able to check this in the Device Manager where Power Management would be present for a USB Root HUB. In your case you will have to search through the listed devices to see if there's such a tab.

Also, make sure the adapter is not plugged to a USB HUB, but directly to a a USB port.
