Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

My PC doesn't find the drivers for the bluetooth N8 in Windows 7 64 bit. 
 
Some solution?

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

Is it all drivers or just some of them?  Windows 7 fails to find 4 bluetooth drivers for me, but successfully installs others.  With Ovi Suite running, sync works fine though and I can access the phone's storage though Windows Explorer.

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

I have no problems with Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit and my Nokia N8 over Bluetooth except that many drivers cannot be found. I can sync, access the storages, etc. and i don't have any problems with the connection.

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

I noticed as follows under Seven" 64 bit: as I installed my N8 , Seven recognized all drivers and the phone was correctly checked among the bt units . Then, as I opened OVI Suite, a further 4 drivers install started, and all of them failed. Everything with OVI Suite works ok, though..

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

I have the same problem with Vista.

 

I have no problem connecting my N8 to Nokia PC Suite, provided I use an older version (since the new versions refuse to support the N8). But, with Ovi Suite, I get connectivity problems, it fails to install software to the phone and (everytime I boot my PC) the Windows Vista laptop fails to be able to load all required drivers for my expensive and barely-functional bluetooth device (the Nokia N8).

 

. . . and, I see this thread is one of the many, many discussions that has no resolution. So, I guess I'm just adding my voice to the many others crying here in the darkness.

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

I guess my problem's even worse. On my computer (a Dell Latitude 630) I can't find my N8 (even though I have bluetooth turned on and visibility show to all on the phone), and my N8 also can't find my computer. I tried overwriting the default Windows 7 bluetooth stack by downloading a driver from Dell support page, but after installing it I didn't see any changes to my bluetooth application.

 

Does anyone know if the N8 is somehow incompatible with Dell's bluetooth drivers?

Having same issue. Unable to connect to windows 7 PC via bluetooth. 'Unable to find drivers for bluetooth peripheral device'

 

There seem to be a lot of posts with the same issue, but none with solutions. Nokia guys! please look in to it. It is so upsetting :smileysad: when facing such petty issues in such a wonderful phone.

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

Hi Guys

This is quite a simple fix. First you need to open OVI suite on your computer. Do not connect your N8 using a usb cable, just select connect another device. When prompted select "use Bluetooth"

as the option. This will then load all of the required drivers onto you computer extracting them from the OVI suite. You can then sync using Bluetooth or simply close your OVI suite and use Bluetooth as normal on your pc laptop etc.

Enjoy.

Dude, i don't think the people here can't figure out a simple solution as this. What you are saying is what which is supposed to happen ideally by default. But that's not happening with us (the PC is not automatically able to load the drivers) and that's why we are all here. And still no solution!

Re: Bluetooth driver Windows 7 - N8

After having all the reported problems with Bluetooth/N8/Win7 64bit I bought a BTv3.0 USB adapter to replace my v2.0, but still the setup wouldn't work.

Out of desperation I installed the Asus/Atheros driver from the d/l link in the earlier post by VALERA_N8 and it has worked like a charm - NO MORE of those bloody yellow question marks in Device Manager.

So big Kudos to VALERA_N8, thanks pal  :-)
