Hi there. what operating system are you running? You may try using the driver from IOGEAR website. Go to www.iogear.com. In search field, please type in the model number of the unit and hit go. Double click the unit and you'll see on the left side "Drivers/Manual" Locate the model number and save the driver to Desktop. Once done, extract the file and use this driver instead. You may also, check IOGEAR's Tech Info Library by clicking solutions and selecting TIL - tech info library. Once there, type in the search field, type "Bluetooth" and look for Installation Guide. this will give you the step by step guide in installing the driver for the said device.

Hope this helps.

No longer have installation disk. Where can I down load it


As you were not very descriptive, I found an area that gave the drivers for the specific device you listed and there are many operating systems that it is compatible with. Once you get the drivers installed it is simply just a matter of pairing the devices (the speaker and the object running the Bluetooth adapter) and you should be ready to go!

Hi there... Iogear Bluetooth micro adapter 2.1 for USB port, software installed... After inserting the adapter, laptop freezes.


What is the operating system of your computer? Can you tell me the exact model number of your Bluetooth Adapter (it usually starts with GBU)?

Check the link below, and see the system requirements:

http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/

You need to check also the system type of your computer (32 or 64-bit OS). Some IOGEAR devices could only support 32-bit OS. If you are running 64-bit OS, that could cause the problem.

Try to uninstall the Bluetooth driver. Reboot the computer, then reload the installation disk that came with it. Once the hardware wizard ask you to plug the device it, just continue the installation, BUT DO NOT plug the device.

After the installation is done, reboot the computer again, the PLUG the device in WHILE the computer is shutting down. Once the computer comes back up, then it should install the other necessary driver. And that should work.

Good luck!

Whenever I log onto windows vista on my hp 6730s laptop with the bluetooth button on and my nokia e51 also with its bluetooth on I get the message three times that drivers for bluetooth peripheral device...


It is because the software for your Nokia phone is not yet installed on your computer for the bluetooth connection... This happened to me as well... so you are not connecting via bluetooth just go to your Control Panel and go to Systems then Hardware and then Device Manager under Other devices, uninstall everything and go to your bluetooth devices and remove the Nokia phone that is in the box (Control Panel >> Bluetooth Devices) you should not be asked again for the drivers once you have rebooted after this...
