Bluetooth and Nokia PC Suite not working

2008-10-01, 8:45 AM

I can't get my Nokia mobile connected via the integrated Bluetooth in the SL300 (WIDCOMM) and the Nokia PC Suite. Did anyone succeed?

 

Emilio.

Hello,

 

yes, Nokia seems to have problems with widcomm bluetooth stack.

One user on thinkpad-forum.de has got the same problem and has joined Nikias BETA program

for further investigation.

Hi Everyone,

 

We are are Nokia Service Centre and are experiencing problems with widcomm bluetooth stack PC Suite complaints about no available com ports on the T400? We have installed the external bluesoliel and they work straight away, just defeats the object of internal BT though? Would be very grateful for any ideas.. thanks in advance..

 

Regards

Hello,

 

please try this hint from a forum user here:

 

1. Uninstall " ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate" in Add/Remove programs 

2. Delete the two bluetooth devices in Device Manager->Network cards

3. Then press:

Scan for new hardware and Windows found bluetooth and installed Microsoft bluetooth drivers.

Re: Bluetooth and Nokia PC Suite not working

I have a SL500 and a N70 with Nokia PC Suite. I have tried different versions of the Nokia PC Suite with the same error: "This type of connection is impossible" (... translated from Italian). I have also tried the hint by Andreas but the SL500 recognize always the Broadcom drivers and cannot delete only one of two devices in the Blutooth Devices (no blutooth under network cards).

My question is: SL500 can recognize the Microsoft bluetooth drivers  ?

SL500 and N70 works well instead with the USB cable. The Bluetooth and cable works well with N70 and my old Compaq notebook.

@ Agotthelf: Thank you, this way it works. Installing the MS bluetooth driver after deinstalling the widcomm driver is not so easy.

 

Here is explained how to to this in general: http://www.shootingsoftware.com/Widcomm.htm

 

As is described on this website you have to change the file c:\WINDOWS\inf\bth.inf 

In my case I added the line:

Thinkpad Bluetooth=                                                             BthUsb, USB\Vid_0A5C&Pid_2145

 

Regards,

Emilio

Hi All,

 

I have resolved this issue on the T400 by just unistalling the Thinkpad Bluetooth software in Add/Remove as described above in a previous post, then let windows do the rest by refreshing the hardware in Device Manager. All works perfect now!

 

One question though do you loose the Enhanced Data 2.0 rate by using a different driver?

 

Thanks again for everyones help to a flustrating problem

 

Regards XT
