Exclamation Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba + BlackBerry Desktop Manager

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to use the stack with the desktop manager and please don't post telling me to install a different stack. Any way with this stack?

There is no support for any stack but the Windows stack. Toshiba stack will not work with Desktop Manager. No can do.

I won't tell you to install another stack. I will tell you John is correct you need the plain generic Widcomm Stack.

I have been totally unable to get the Dell wireless 360 bt module to work at all with Desktop Manager.

I can't even get it to load the Windows drivers. I wish I would have gone with an older model like the 350 or 355.

Default Additional Bluetooth Drivers for Microsoft Bluetooth

I recently got my 8330 and discovered that my Dell 360 Bluetooth Module would not work because Microsoft Stack does not have it loaded. As everyone knows the Blackberry Desktop needs to see the Microsoft Bluetooth.

I found a simple solution. Look at this article: Articles - Additional Bluetooth Drivers for Microsoft Bluetooth in Windows XP SP2
Articles - Additional Bluetooth Drivers for Microsoft Bluetooth in Windows XP


All this does is add more Bluetooth Devices to the bluetooth inf file. I was up and running with Microsoft Bluetooth is less than 5 mins. Synced over Bluetooth in less than 10 mins.

OH and it is FREE!

Thanks for posting that! I installed that .msi file and now I have the Windows drivers for Bluetooth and all looks normal. I can pair devices with the PC but the devices never seem to stay connected. I'm not sure what the issue is.

I can't get any services to show up under the computer profile on the BB.

Most utterly awesome! I installed those additional drivers and did the hack on the "inf" file and all told, it took me 20-30 minutes to figure everything out because I already had the Toshiba Drivers installed so I had to look for the PID a bit but found it. Once I paired up, Desktop manager was quite happy and I was able to do a Sync and backup over BT quite quickly. I have to say it ran as fast as a cable hookup.

I just tried some additional attempts and just by clicking on DM on my PC, the LED starts blinking blue on my BB and the two link up in seconds. All DM functions work great except media manager, that requires a physical hookup anyway.

I was tempted but I never UNinstalled the Toshiba drivers. All I did was delete, (actually move), the startup shortcut out of my startup directory for the Bluetooth Manager for the Toshiba Stack. In my Device manager, all I see are the MS drivers installed.

Thank You poetintenn SO much for the links and info.

It's a simple edit of the bth.inf file (as long as you don't have issues with unsigned drivers) and it worked fine for me! On one computer it works fine and I can sync and backup, etc. now but on the other one DM's BT options are still greyed out. It's very strange and I'm at a loss as to how to fix it. I guess a complete uninstall and reinstall of DM is next....ugh.

Well, a clean uninstall and reinstall didn't do it. I have worn out Google trying to figure this one out. I'm sure it's a conflict with something I have installed on the computer but I just can't find it.

I have the MS bluetooth stack installed and all looks the same on both Dell laptop pc's with the same internal BT card. However, one machine the DM will NOT find the BT and the BT config options stay greyed out. On the other machine it's now working great.

Maybe look at Device manager->Bluetooth Device->Properties->Adavanced to see if they are both addressed the same? And maybe in the "Details" to see if you maybe misstyped a digit in the PID entry of your "inf" file?

Well, if the PID were mistyped it wouldn't have loaded the drivers. Bluetooth works fine for other applications. Dm just doesn't like something and I just figure out what it is.

I am experiencing a bit of your frustration because, just for the heck of it, I had an extra BlueTooth Dongle so I decided to try it in my laptop. It installed with some weird driver but it paired up with the BB okay. But my DM has it grayed out so I installed the extra drivers but when I went to do the hack on the inf file, I found that this Windows (XP home SP3) doesn't have a "bth.inf" file. I looked at a few other files that resembled the name but their contents were nothing like what we're after.

Fortunately, I don't really need to hookup with that computer as it was mere a curiosity thing. But it will give me something to play with over the weekend like I realy need to be doing this rather than fixing the spinklers or cleaning the garage or something.

Default BlackBerry Desktop Manager on Vista

I have read the posts to this thread with interest.

Thank you for the information. The information appears to be aimed at XP.

I am trying to connect my BlackBerry Bold via Bluetooth to my Toshiba Vista notebook so that I can wirelessly sync the details in my eWallet.

Presumably the Toshiba Bluetooth stack is not going to allow me to connect to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager (it allows me to discover and link to the BlackBerry via the Bluetooth manager but not via the BlackBerry Desktop Manager).

Can anyone provide a series of straightfoward steps/downloads for me to discover my BlackBerry to my notebook via the BlackBerry Desktop Manager?

Thank you.

Remove the Toshiba drivers. You can do that under Control Panel >Add Remove Programs. Then reboot the computer and let Windows install it's own drivers for Bluetooth. Then the DM should recognize it.

Keep in mind, you may lose some functionality that the Toshiba drivers add.

Finally got the laptop to allow DM to link via BT. I had to delete everything that referenced the BT adapter and then allow the laptop to search the Internet for drivers. It installed with Microsoft drivers and listed itself as ISSC or Integrated System Solutions Corp. But DM likes it and syncing up was easy.

I had added those "Additional Drivers" but I don't know if that helped because the installed failed until I let the laptop search the Internet. Also, I was never able to do that hack to the "inf" file because this computer didn't have a file with the correct name for me to modify. So this successful installation happened without the hack. Pretty much just a standard installation. And all from a BT adapter I got off of Amazon for 5 bucks.

hey guy so I uninstalled my bluetooth drivers for my toshiba laptop but when I restarted Vista never even installed its own drivers. When i do a hardware scan it says nothing is found? What should I do now to get windows vista to install its own drivers for the bluetooth.

It's an internal bluetooth that came with my toshiba satellite laptop.

thanks.

Oh, I wish I saw this a week or two ago! I fried 4 BBs trying to get my bt on! I also have a Toshiba Satellite OS Vista. When I was pairing bt, my pc would stop recognizing the USB connection and do something internally making USB sync impossible (device wouldn't be recognized)from ANY pc.

On this last BB, I just decided to pray nothing ever goes wrong that I need to sync via bt. I haven't paired this BB with my pc. If anybody has time, can somebody give me the installing Windows bt for dummies version? I had given up hope!
