    I also have the same problem with Sony SRS BT100.

    I have the same problem too. I can connect the speakers fine, but when I turn them on either the computer doesn't see the speakers or vice versa and they never connect. The only way I can get them to connect is to click on Properties to discover what services the speakers offer, but the connection only lasts a second or two.
    With XP this was not a problem because I could manually start/force the connection. Vista doesn't allow you to force a connection. Pretty dumb really.

Hi,
This has also been sending me around the bend. I resolved it by disabling the speakers on my laptop. To do this go into control panel, then hardware and sound, then change system sound. Select your speakers and disable them. This allowed me to play music through the speakers. You can also re-enable the laptop speakers after this.

I was working on this for 2 days on my Sony Vaio with Windows Vista. Not even Sony chat support could help. They kept having me reinstall drivers. Finally got it to work!
1) go to bluetooth devices and right-click the SRS-BTM30 speaker icon,
2)Select "Control" (this will open a new window)
3)Select "SCMS-T Settings"
4)Un-check the box next to "Connect to a device only if it supports SCMS-T content protection"
5)"Apply" setting
6)Click the "Connect" button
Voila! It works! So much easier than I thought! No other help for this anywhere else online. i hope this helps someone else.
Enjoy the amazing SRS-BTM30 speakers. They sound amazing for a bluetooth speaker.

Fixed this problem finally. It's quite a process getting them connected! Make sure you've paired the speakers and that went fine. Turn the speakers on. Click the bluetooth icon in the Task Manager. Click on the "Bluetooth Settings" tab from the menu. A dialogue box called Bluetooth Radio Properties opens. Click the Audio tab. If you've paired your speakers right you should see them in the list. Highlight them and click the "Connect" button. The speakers should then connect. Make sure they are set as the default device (use the Volume Mixer from the Task manager to do this) and you should be right as rain.

How do i pair my phone to play on my insignia speaker?


1. Press and hold the button to put the speaker in "Pairing/Connecting" mode. You should see a red and blue light flashing in rapid succession somewhere on the speaker.
2. Turn on Bluetooth on the phone and tap on Scan. The phone will start scanning for nearby Bluetooth devices. When you see that it detected a device with a name similar to the speaker's name, tap on the name to pair with the phone. If you are asked for a passcode/passkey, enter '0000' or '1234' (without the quotes). If the two pair, the light on the speaker will turn to a steady blue and you will see 'Connect' on the phone. Tap on Connect and then you will see Connected on the phone. Your phone and the speaker are now connected.

The steps above should be detailed in the set up guide that came with the speaker. There may even be a passkey/code provided in the guide. Use that one for pairing instead of the passkey I suggested above. Please note that pairing is a one-time procedure, required only the first time you are connecting the phone to the speaker, a "get to know you" procedure. After that, you just need to connect the two.
