Ive loaded the drivers for the USB bluetooth device and then added my headphones to my bluetooth device list but for some reason Vista refuses to connect to it. It says its connected but music wont play to the headphones.
Ive tried Vistas bluetooth troubleshooting and enabled bluetooth devices to find my computer and it still doesnt work. My bluetooth phone works fine with my computer..... It seems Vista is incompatible with bluetooth headphone devices.
Re: Windows Vista wont connect to these headphones
I have this pair of head phones and I've connected them to my computer which uses vista. What I did was connect them to the computer through pairing. If you get a message asking for a pin, you just type 0000 for the code and you should get it installed just fine.
After this is done, you go to the microphone symbol in the bottom left toolbar and right click, and go to playback devices. From here you should should see a symbol that says "Speakers" and right underneath it should say "Bluetooth Audio device". Click this one, set to default and click ok. The sound from the computer should go to the headphones at this point.
As for getting the built-in microphone to work with the computer, I'm still working on that issue myself

The Dell Support web site only offers audio drivers for Windows XP or earlier versions of Windows. If you are using Windows Vista or 7 then you will probably have to rely on the default audio driver that these versions of Windows will load automatically when installed as Dell do not offer an official device driver for these versions. The alternative approach if the built in sound device is not recognised and you cannot find a suitable device driver would be to buy either an internal sound card or a USB sound card - the latter just plugs into the USB port, provides the normal audio sockets and can be used to connect your speakers, headphones, microphone etc.
Windows Vista should see the bluetooth headphones without any extra drivers. If you open your bluetooth options, and you can see the headphones, and it asks for a password, try 0000 or 1111.
Also - check your computer to ensure that it does have bluetooth capability. If the computer doesn't have bluetooth built in, you'll need to use the USB communicator that should have come with the headphones. If you don't have the USB stick that came with the headphones, your best bet is to contact JBL and see if they will send you a new one.
Another thing you can try, just to verify the headphones are good - is to try to sync them with an ipod or iphone and see if you can listen to music through them.
You have to set bluetooth as default audio device. For doing this, go to >Contro Panel> Sound and Audio Devices>Audio(Tab) and in Default Device choose bluetooth device.
In my case, I had problem when i installed SP3 on XP. I changed my bluetooth driver to "Toshiba Bluetooth Stack V6.00.10" and it worked for me.
What software are you using to pair the headphones? Are you using the software from the CD that came with the headset? Or are you using Windows built-in software?
If you are using Windows' software, then you need to download the correct driver from the link below. Although the Windows software will pair with any bluetooth device, it does not support audio.
