Question about Insignia Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with USB Bluetooth Adapter

NS-BTHDST will not work on Vista system - need driver!

Received for Xmas - great! Run on laptop w/ vista op.sys - NO way! Recognizes headset, mic works, nothing thru earphones. CD in the pkg doesn't load compatible driver. Tried looking on the site and on web. Just get re-directed to an upgrade from MoJo which is $4.99 US (sucks). Won't work now so upgrade is useless. Did find comments from others with same problem- Anyone know how to get this working? Santa may have to drag his tired **** back here to return it to the north pole!

    wont work

  • WG4F Jan 19, 2009

    i already tried both those solutions. nothing ******* happened! all that happenes is when sound should b comming out of them, the background white noise increases, as if it should b playing. i've been trying to get these damn things to work for like, 6 months! it worked perfectly with my phone and other peoples phones, as well as with my sony ipod bluetooth adapter for my ipod touch. only wont work on a comp. i've even taken them back to bestbuy and replaced them 3 times! if i had wanted ones that would only work on my phone and ipod i woulda gotten some offbrand $30 bt headphones that worked just fine on them. but no, i want ones that also work on my laptop, and shellled out $90 for them. and now what? and i swear im so sick and tired of trying to look this problem up just to have someone tell us all the same **** we all tried b4 looking it up. if we have these and have set them up, chances r we r smart enough to have tried that! hell, those ideas r straight from the manual! and guess what? THEY DONT WORK! this is getting really old!

I had this problem too with both vista and XP and it is a matter of changing what the computer is outputting to. If you look to the bottom right of your display you should see the icons in bar. If you right click on the speaker icon and select audio properties. It will open a window labeled 'Sounds and Audio Devices Properties' and select the "Audio" tab. If you change the Default Device to the Bluetooth headset, click apply, then restart your media player software then it should work.

I will try and watch this site to see if this helps, let me know.

Changed op sys from vista to xp and no sound

The vista drivers may not work with xp. Also, if you updated in the opposite direction to 7, sometimes functionality will decrease for certain drivers.

How to reformat pc with out a cd

It depends on your system, if you have a vista you won't need a CD. If you have a vista you should find the option on the control panel. That should work.

Good luck

Factory installed microphone isn't working anymoe

open up your volume toolbar, advanced and make sure that your mic is not muted, turned down or that your mic +20 boost is turned off. You can always uninstall sound drivers and have vista find them again on boot up, but Vista is such a new platform that your mic hardware may not be compatible. Good luck, I have never had good results with the windows mic.

Query regarding mic support in Windows Vista

Yes you do indeed need to have Vista Drivers, That said sometimes the XP drivers MAY work if they and the software are installed in XP Compatibility Mode. Vista has been a nightmare for us in the Computer repair industry... one can only hope that all driver issues are addressed in any service packs to come? I doubt it tho...It seems a case of out with the old and in with the new...wheather ya like it or not.
