Hello!

Today I received Wiimote with build-in Motion+ & Nunchuk. I tried to connect to PC via Bluetooth but it's stuck.
I used Microsoft BT Stack (Standart), BlueSoleil 2.3, 2.6, 8.0, 6.4, next - BT Driver by TOSHIBA with ES-388 - it still not working.
Shortly, when I try to search bt devices I press 1+2 buttons - 4 LEDs become blinking, after 10-15 seconds it stop and nothing happens :( It's so sad, because I wanna play with it :(
Can you help me with solving this problem?

Sincerely,
Alexander

Where did you purchase your Wii Remote from?  If it is a fake Wii Remote, they are notorious for having connection problems.  If it is truly a new Nintendo Wii Remote Plus, you will need to use the new compilation of smoothboard and use the Toshiba bluetooth stack.

I would highly recommend using a nintendo brand controller.  I think you'll find that the performance of Nintendo brand versus fakes is well worth the money and time lost using a non nintendo product.  This includes tracking (the ir cameras in the Wii Remotes are of high resolution compared to most fakes) as well as ease of connecting to a computer. 

I wonder if you had a nintendo brand Wii Remote if you wouldn't have had to buy a new bluetooth dongle...

Smoothboard is a program that easily connects your Wii Remote for you and then has annotation features to use as an interactive whiteboard. 

Good luck

As mentioned by teacherdude, the non genuine wiimotes may pr may not work well. Even may work with the actual Wii console but for the wiimote whiteboard, the IR sensitivity must be good or else there will be a lot of issues with the tracking.
