I have a new notebook x201i Windows 7, Bluetooth is installed and working, the icon is on but I cannot connect with external devices like mobile phones. The system finds them but does not enable files exchange. I'm getting the error message like Could not connect with the device or Could not find the right driver for the external device. I have reinstalled the driver from Lenovo support page, no results any ideas? Please help...
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you do a right click on the bluetooth icon on the taskbar and go to open settings you've got a tab called share. check if the box allow remote devices to browse, send, and receive pictures, music, and other files is ticked.
You can also try to connect from your phone to your computer I know for my nokia 3720c is the easiest way because sometimes my computer don't want to connect to the phone but the other way works all the time.
What kind of phone do you want to connect ?

hey, I failed while connecting Nokia E71 and succeeded with Samsung Corby of my daughter. It seems my system (Windows 7 32 bit Professional) lacks the Nokia E71 driver which is weird because Nokia support shows E71 as completely compatible with Windows 7 without the necessity of installing drivers. Well, could not find any E71 drivers anyway...Please help if you can

Try to install nokia ovi suite. You can find it there: http://europe.nokia.com/support/download-software/nokia-ovi-suite/compatibility-and-download
Normally it will install the drivers you need.
Hope that helps...

OK, the problem is solved. I tried to use the previous post solution and it finally worked! I have searched the devices from the mobile phone, then connected to the laptop and now it works perfectly
Thanks to all that helped or wanted to help!

I would add one thing. Sometimes Windows 7 might show an exclamation point next to a device, but it could still be connected. It depends which features are active. My iPhone has this issue with the exclamation point, but I can still play music and take phone calls through Bluetooth. Sometimes, my Bluetooth mouse can interfere with the stream though.
