A few solutions to try (make sure you remove the last, this is definatley a software/hardware incompatability).

Try latest Bluesoleil (free demo): http://www.bluesoleil.com

Try latest widdcom:

http://anonymz.com/?http://rapidshare.com/files/120972908/www.softarchive.net_Broadcom__WIDCOMM__Bluetooth_Software_5.0.1_Win64.rar 64bit Windows

Try following this: http://www.telusplanet.net/public/wladykad/

Broadcom (makers of Widcomm) have just changes their format, see if this works http://www.mogostore.com/broadcom/nextsteps.asp

It aligns with the identification of your hardware as '2.0 EDR' broadcom may be releasing a new standard to counteract the power MS have taken in the BT market with the performance of its XP & Vista stacks.

Take a look at the software that came with your device too. I'm in the other side of OZ at the moment visiting familiy. When I get home arround the 4th I will do some more research because this is important knowledge for the forum.

Got it!

Installing the latest WidCOM didn't help. But on a whim, I unpacked my Wii Play Wiimote, put in fresh batteries, and..wham. It connected.

The first Wiimote is the one that came with my Wii. I don't know if pairing it to the Wii was the problem, or if it has an older Bluetooth chip, but it still doesn't work.

EDIT: One thing to note that's different about them: The first Wiimote's lights would turn off part way through the connection. The second one's stay lit the entire time.

 :D YAHHH  :D

I suggest you return the first wiimote sounds busted! There is no probelm with connecting to Wii & PC no memory in Wiimote to modify.

Happy Wiimoting

I seriously doubt "Oh hey, this works fine with my Wii but won't connect to my PC" is going to fly as a return reason. :P
