Hi,

I have a Nokia 2630 telephone, and I am looking to transfer some pictures between the phone and my laptop. To this end, I bought the following USB bluetooth adapter:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/USB-Bluetooth-Adapte...3166216fff75a10

When I pair my telephone with my computer, everything is fine until the very last stage when it comes to installing a driver. I am prompted to insert the CD I got with the bluetooth adapter. One problem: I did not get a CD. As the e-bay listing says, it is plug and play.

I was wondering if anyone might be able to suggest where I might download a good driver from? I have heard there are issues with Windows Vista and bluetooth drivers. For the record, I have windows vista SP 1.

This device is supposed to be plug and play.

As per the specs given on that page you linked us to.

•No drivers required for installation (plug 'n' play)
•Plug 'n' play support with Windows XP(Service Pack 2 update). And Vista.

Therefore the device should not be asking for a disk.

Since I am not totally familure with this device, the only thing I could suggest is, if it is not working properly, then maybe it needs a file from your Vista disk.

Sorry I am not much help, but since I do not know the brand name of this device, it would be hard to locate a driver web site for it.

Bruce.
