I have 2 different Bluetooth Logitech audio devices.  They have been discovered and paired with my bluetooth laptop but they don't show a service listed when queried by the laptop.   These are the Logitech wireless audio system found here:

I also have the headphones:

Does anyone know how to get Windows XP Pro to recognize this as an audio device addressable through bluetooth?

If your computer is running the Microsoft Windows Bluetooth stack then it won't work. There's no support for A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) on that software. You need to use a software that supports this.

Check what software you are using... HAve you just inserted the Bluetooth adapter and it "worked" without installing other software? In this case it's most likely the Microsoft software.

Also, you must use the software that came with this Bluetooth adapter, but only some software supports the A2DP. For example BlueSoleil and Toshiba, in their latest versions.
