Yes, I get that as well. But none the less, its doesnt work!
To see if your Bluetooth is fully installed and working it must be present in the DEVICE MANAGER.
Not only that, I had to go through the trouble of finding out how to and then uninstalling/disablleing the WinXp SP2 Bluetooth support, otherwise other Bluetooth devices (ie USB nodes) do not work due to a liscense for each Bluetooth device & software. U cant simply mix and match them.
It works now, but every time and again, when I pack my notebook and run out, I tend to forget to drag the USB node with me. Thus creating a ruckous.
I mostly use the Bluetooth connection to connect to the mobile internet and transfer pictures/videos with my cingular camera/video phone.
Works great, when the bluetooth works.....
If anyone out there has ANY FEEDBACK on the actual Bluetooth usage on their DV1170US or similar, please let me know.
Thanks again guys...
