Toshiba Bluetooth
Thursday 23rd August, 2007 16:18 Comments: 0
My Dell laptop uses a Toshiba Bluetooth card. If you go to the Dell website and try to download the latest Vista drivers and applications for my laptop, it will give you a version of Toshiba's driver that's pretty much useless. You can fight with it for a bit, but ultimately you'll get nowhere. But at least Vista warns you about the program and gives you a (somewhat helpful) link to Toshiba's website. You can download what I think were slightly newer drivers from there (I didn't check the versions, but I got a funky little tray icon and it looked slightly newer), but it still wasn't quite working properly - I initially thought it could be an issue caused by UAC, but I'm not entirely sure it is. So after a bit more searching I managed to come across Toshiba's bluetooth download page on their German site, which has a multi language download (5.10.12 Windows 2000 / Windows XP / Windows VISTA) that was released on June 13th 2007. It's clearly taken them a while, but it looks like they've finally sorted everything out. I can even use the tray icon to disable/enable Bluetooth on my laptop, without raising any UAC prompts!
