MY BT-03I Connect Successfully to my laptop but laptop can't detect that as a headset/speaker so i can't hear any thing with it !!! please help me

If you are running Windows XP, you will need to load on a "Bluetooth Stack" for Audio Profile support. These are not free, unless they are bundled with your laptop of the Bluetooth add-on card.
The built in Windows XP Bluetooth support is minimal and based on data transfer only.
Bluetooth stack providers include Widcomm and BlueSoleil. The Laptop Vendor or add-in card provider need to provide the stack.

Toshiba laptop with IOgear bluetooth adapter installed will recognize phone but won't detect plantronics explorer headpiece. I would like to use it to chat on skype

If the Bluetooth adapter can detect the phone but not the Plantronics headpiece, then there's no problem with your computer or your Bluetooth adapter. The problem has something to do with the Plantronics.

Try to turn the headpiece off, then turn it back on. Set it to discovery mode, then try to detect it using your computer. If that did not help.

Try to detect the Plantronics, using your phone. That will help you in isolating the problem.

Aside from that, make sure that no possible wireless interference while you're searching for the headpiece. Cell phone, base of the cordless phone should be away from the computer while you're searching for the headpiece. Because Bluetooth and cellphones/cordless phones are running on the same 2.4GHz frequency RF signal. They might interfere with each other.

Good luck!

Insignia NS-BTHDP ok with phone, pairs with PC but can't connect

Make sure the headphones are set as "default" under Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Sound>Manage Audio Devices - same for microphone if you're using it for online speech.

Pairing a bluetooth adapter without key

hay the key is nothing more then a metal stylus try using a sewing pin in place of the stylus. it is metal and small enough to fit in the hole this will alow you to press the button and set it into pairing mode. good luck and have a nice day!

Jabra bluetooth adapter A210

you have to connect the jabra audio jack to the audio source, to the speaker output of your receiver for example. If jabra detects the source it will work. If you cut the connection, jabra watch for a while if something happend and than stops the transmittion. Hope that helps

Lost my Insignia Bluetooth Headset Disk

Lost Disc

I bought this headset from Best Buy and it came with a usb dongle.  I also lost the disc.  Insignia's website is useless, and the Broadcomm update website is down at the time of this writing.  After hours upon hours of scouring, I found a working driver, which works perfectly.  This works on Windows XP, but I can't verify that it will work for Vista.    I hope this helps you.

I will never buy Insignia products again because of their lack of driver support. 
Best regards, RobotJay
