CAN'T FIND WIN7 DRIVER FOR BLUETOOTH HBS-200 HEADSET


Unfortunately, Windows 7 removed native support for bluetooth headsets, for absolutely no reason.

The drivers are actually not needed for the Headset specifically, but rather for the A2DP and AVRCP profiles and audio sink. The downside is that Microsoft's Bluetooth stack does not support either of these.

So you need a Better Bluetooth Stack, so it understands all of the virtual Bluetooth devices.

These directions work for almost any headset that has issues when connected to Windows. Sadly, there is no really good well-defined set of drivers for Windows Bluetooth, so it will frequently take some finagling.

1: Find the correct and absolutely most-up-to-date drivers for your Bluetooth hardware on your computer. In -MOST- cases, the chipset is Broadcom, however manufacturers such as Dell and others tend to put some odd wrappers around the chip so their drivers are required. If not, the direct-from-Broadcom drivers will work.

2: IF the Bluetooth hardware is already detected by Windows, delete it from device manager. Reboot the computer if this was done.

3: On reboot, Windows may detect it and reinstall it fresh. This is fine if it does. Allow it to install and reboot if it requests.

Once the Windows stack is installed properly, you can install the updated stack. With Dell drivers and other OEM computer manufacturer drivers, Windows may not detect it to begin with, however having Windows drivers first is not necessary with these drivers.

4: Install the proper driver. With the Broadcom driver, this will only work if Windows has already installed. With OEM drivers, this is often not necessary. Reboot if necessary.

With the happy stack installed, and the headset paired, you will find that instead of just Handsfree Telephony and Headset services, you will also have Remote Control and Audio Sink services.

Headset/Handsfree: Mono 38kbps audio out and also a microphone input. This is what is used for phone calls. It sounds horrid, mind you.

Audio Sink: Stereo happiness and joy. No microphone input.

Once you have these devices, you do need to set your audio playback device appropriately for Stereo Happiness and Joy.

Need Windows 7 64bit drivers for Bluetiger BH-M20 Bluetooth headset


I have scoured the web on the issue of BT headset failure on Windows 7. Here\'s a summary of what I did and if this doesn\'t work, plug in a wired headset or get a #$)( Mac.

I\'m on the latest Windows 7 (as of April 2013). It discovers my Blue Tiger (bluetigerusa.com, eBay purchased new) Delux BT headset (dual ear w/ mic - designed for truckers), and even with WIndows BT driver up to date http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php, Bluetooth Support Service restarted (Start > services), device successully added with device pairing mode (Windows Add BT device and holding device button down for 15 seconds until blue and red LEDs flash alternately - pink on some phone devices), and Windows sound device (Start > sound) Playback & Recording tabs right-clicked to enable "Show disabled devices," the headset still fails to show as a playback or recording device.

Simply put, all versions of Windows after XP have sucked. They change the UI to please Microsoft but with no apparent value to the user and though the help text is noticably better than former versions, the product itself is not. If Microsoft is going to try to reinvent the Mac, I\'m just gonna go get a Mac. Microsoft should stick to Ms Office apps, which they do well. Even Apple went Unix, having to admit that their own OS was absolute rubbish. Is Microsoft preparing to die? There\'s simply no innovation there. Perhaps they should hire some ex-Disney Imagineers?

My 220 won't turn on. Red light stays on when charging but when unplugged won't do anything


The link below on page 7 has the sequence for turning on your headset (Explorer 230 and 220 work the same). If you're still having problems, then it needs to replaced.

I have bluetooth headset MM100 but Windows 7 cannot locate drivers for it.


Hi,

This is a strange question I will explain.

The MM100 is working according the A2DP (bluetooth) protocol.

So windows 7 can not find your sennheiser drivers because there are none.

Windows 7 needs the driver for your bluetooth card. This is either integrated in your computer or you are using a USB dongle.

Through the bluetooth software within windows 7 or a alternate program provided with your bluetooth card you can look for your sennheiser. This is colled pairing.

There are thousends of methods to pair so read the manual of your computer (bluetoothcard or dongle) aswell as the MM100.

Good Luck

I have got a Jabra BT620s and connected it with usb to Windows 7 64 bit pc. The drivers automaticly were installed and ready to use. But there is no sound trough the headset, only trough the speakers. When...


Does your computer have built in bluetooth? if yes,make sure you press and hold the stereo bluetooth till its steady blue,,not blinking blue. then on your pc, go the bluetooth section in control panel and search for devices. then you should see the Jabra Audio device.click on it to connect to the Jabra and use the passcode 0000. After it connects, the steady blue should now be blinking blue. Then go to control panel, sound and you should see the Jabra there.Right click on it and click on set as default device. Now play any song and see if you still have it playing in your speakers.Let me know if it works.I have the same Jabra and its really works great.Especially when im working out and dont want no wires around me

I installed windows 7 on my acer 5610 and all my buttens stop working


Hi Thophilip ,

It means that you still have to download the drivers for that laptop to work with Windows 7.
Windows seven has bunch of default drivers for most of the devices available on the market but not all of them, specially the proprietary laptop buttons.
I checked for driver for windows seven but I can't find any
-the best thing is try using the vista drivers
-most vista drivers will work with windows seven
-if it does not work, use the compatibility mode

32-BIT Vista Drivers
Chipset - Intel
Audio - Realtek
Bluetooth - Broadcom
Camera - Bison
Camera - Logitech
Camera - Suyin
Card Reader - ENE
FIR - SMSC

Broadcom Lan Drivers (v8.48.0.0)
