I have this bluetooth dongle (http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/41e099b206a8660e2740c0a87f99074d/Product/View/XH6829) which up until yesterday was functioning perfectly with my paired T630 Sony Ericsson phone

This was with the provided WIDCOMM bluetooth software 1.4.1 build 7 running on XP SP2. After the reformat this morning, they will no longer locate each other. I have previously reformated & reinstalled with no problems under SP2 (apart from the long known issue with driver signing Bluetooth drivers in SP2)

Now I have downloaded the latest version of the WIDCOMM software 1.4.2.10 - Still no joy.

Im quite lost as to what could have happend THIS reformat as opposed to previous ones.

Also the default SP2 drivers wont pair up with my phone either.

Help please?

If anything under device manager/usb/usb controllers has an ? delete them and reboot. If you've just reinstalled XP/SP2.

Im in the proccess of doing everything here (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;840635&Product=windowsxpsp2)

I have gone through the process previously of installing the 3rd party Bluetooth stack over the WHQL signed ones. This method had worked on numerous previous occasions
