Hi,

I just bought this usb hub and it doesn't recognize the Bluetooth dongle without the software CD is in, even though the software is already installed.
The hub recognizes my usb flash drive just fine..

Thanks in advance..

Some devices are just not recognized, through a hub.
Does the Bluetooth dongle work in one of the USB ports on your computer?

I had an mp3 player that did the same thing.
Worked fine on the computer, but not through a hub.
Contacted manufacturer, and they verified that it would not work through a hub.
It had to be plugged directly into the computer.

Yes, it works fine in any of the USB ports. It's that I've decided to the use a hub because using USB ports a lot kind of loosen them and make it difficult to detect whatever is plugged in.

You mean the Bluetooth dongle, not the hub, is the problem? So, In your opinion, why the hub detects the Bluetooth dongle only when the CD is in?

Sorry BonbonRose, but I don't have a clue.
Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the Bluetooth dongle?
It may be a known issue.
