    Hello people, just wondering if anyone might be able to help me, basically I just bought a Bluetooth dongle from Argos for my PC running Windows 7 64bit, the dongle is apparently compatible with Win7 but it doesn't seem to fully work, my PC is able to find my Bluetooth devices now but I still cannot transfer data between devices, my PC simply brings up the error message "bluetooth peripheral device - driver not found".

    On checking Google for help people seem to suggest to (re-)install the drivers for my dongle but this dongle is plug&play and didn't have any driver CD with it. The Dongle also seems to work fine on my Vista system.. So is this a Windows 7 issue? If so, is there any way around it?

    Go to Device Manager and find out exactly which make/model of BT adapter it is. Then do a search for drivers for that model - see what you can find.

    @Tricky Thanks mate, but still no luck, not a big deal, I'll just return the thing and buy one I know comes with specific Win7 drivers, cheers anyway.
