Hello Freitasm, I do cannot find My Bluetooth Places on my computer anywhere! I even ran a search for those words. I did go to Network Connections>Personal Area Network>Bluetooth Network Connection (BNC). I right click on BNC and get a Bluetooth Personal Area Network Devices window. I click on add; get a Welcome to the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard. I check (My device is set up and ready to be found), then it searches. Get message; Windows cannot find any Bluetooth devices. When I go to Control Panel>Bluetooth Devices I get a Bluetooth Devices window, click on add, it finds a Samsung WEP150 (New device), I highlight it and click next, then choose Don’t use a passkey, then finish. Window closes and I come back to Bluetooth Devices window and Samsung WEP150 (No passkey) is listed under Devices tab, Audio devices. I highlight it and choose properties, it lists it with an address of 00:07:a4:ce:32:5e What does this mean? When I click on the Services tab, the flashlight searches and finds nothing. When I close the Bluetooth Devices window and open it again the Samsung WEP150 is gone. Please help! Thank You, Dean

That address is the mac address of the bluetooth, like hardware identity.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you will need to hold the "talk" button on the bluetooth down when PC is searching for the device... kind of to make sure that it talks to the right device.

Just like when we registerred to a PBX

We'll never be too old to learn, and we learn at least one new thing every day.

You have to use a passkey to pair the computer and the headset. Otherwise they will not recognise each other and the computer will not be able to list the services available.

In general headsets have a default PIN 0000 (4 zeroes).
