Now I am looking for good software programs to run with this technology.

When playing around with it, I've just been using MS Paint, which is ok...but a little difficult for students to read because my handwriting looks like that of a 5 year old.  Is there better programs out there that I can use?  If so, any and all information on them would be greatly appreciated.

Works great!  I am making a user write up guide.  I didnt even use the wiimote connect program.  I plan to post the guide next weekend.

Oh yea?  I'm in Davison (east of Flint).....Small world...  The micro adapter you were talking about...did you get that from Penteractive ?

4
I submitted my order today.  How long would you guess it would take to get from TN to Michigan?  I chose the cheapest shipping option...

Anyways, I'll keep you posted on my progress...

Penteractive.us sells a Micro Bluetooth Adapter and if there was never any other bluetooth software installed on the computer, XP installs it perfectly using the Silicon Wave drivers.



We've sold hundreds of these with little difficulty. They also work in Linux (Ubuntu 8.04+).

WOW! great site!  So to get this mini usb bluetooth adapter to connect to my wii remote, I just plug it into the computer....windows plug and play locates the correct drivers for me...I install them and then my wii remote will connect to my computer?....

I'm asking for recommendations on which USB bluetooth adapter I should buy.

I know there are many, such as on newegg.com
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=usb+bluetooth+adapter

But....I am looking for personal verification on a specific usb bluetooth adapter that will work FOR SURE.  I have purchased USB bluetooth adapters in the past....did everything I could to get it to work, and no luck.


I am a teacher with a projector in my classroom and would LOVE to make it an interactive whiteboard.

Therefore, I am looking for a USB bluetooth adapter that will easily get me up and running.  Please post links with any recommendations.

Thanks!

I returned my Rocketfish Bluetooth adapter to Best Buy last night.

Therefore, now I am in need of a bluetooth USB adapter....One that is going to work without too much tweaking.

Any links or information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Ok...well I played around with it at school this week....and still on luck.

Here is my story...

1. I turned on my computer and plugged in my Rocketfish Bluetooth USB adapter.  Went to the Device Manager...

2. Took the information from device manager and inserted it into the bth.inf file.
http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~zha249/Junk/BTH_Screenshot2.JPG


3. Unplugged my USB adapter and then plugged it back in.  MANUALLY located the bth.inf file
http://www.ehhs.cmich.edu/~zha249/Junk/BTH_Screenshot4.JPG


4. It searched and then found the following.  So clicked next...and it installed some things before saying that I needed to put a Driver Disc into the CD rom drive.....

Still no luck.  Any suggestions?

No I don't...sorry.  I think things got messed up when I installed the software that came with the adapter and then uninstalled it.  I'm going to check it out at school/work, which is where I need it to connect anyways.  Now that I know what i'm doing, I'll try that first.

If you have any other ideas, I would be interested in hearing them though...

I added the &Rev id.  Still doesn't work.

Am I doing something wrong?  Do I need to tell my USB adapter when i am trying to sync the wiimote?

These are the steps that I do:
1. Plug my Rocketfish Bluetooth USB adapter into my computer.
2. Hold down 1 & 2 on the wiimote
3. The 4 blue lights on the bottom start blinking
4. Continue to hold down 1 & 2
5. After 20 seconds or so, the 4 lights stop blinking
6. I let go of the 1 & 2 buttons on wiimote.
7. I get more depressed....

I've tried doing the same thing but instead of pressing and holding 1 & 2, I use the little red button by the batteries.  That doesn't work either.

Do I just need to return this adapter (Rocketfish) and get a different one?  Have I exhausted all other options?  If so, which adapter should I get?

Yes.  Widcomm is no longer in my Add/Remove Programs....

Do I need to remove it a different way?

What should I do next?

Here is a screen shot of my bth.inf file.

From http://www.wiili.org/index.php/Compatible_Bluetooth_Devices

RocketFish Bluetooth EDR Class II Wireless USB Adapter should work with the latest WIDCOM drivers. Of coarse I don't know when that was written and after attempting to find the site for WIDCOM I got completly lost. When you bought the Bluetooth adapter did it come with any software?

If the microsoft stack is the only way to fix your problem, i can give these tips.
The file   %windir%\inf\bth.inf   means C:\Windows\Inf\bth.inf

Also the attached picture shows how to find the line to copy into the bth.inf file

That is a complicated procedure that I haven't tried so I might be describing it wrong. I would wait to see if anyone else here has some better ideas about the WIDCOM driver or a different stack to try.



I uninstalled the Broadcom 2045 driver from my device manager and loaded that hardware ID as shown in your picture to my bth.inf file instead of the other one.  However, whenever i plug my usb adapter back in, the Broadcom 2045 driver shows back up in my device manager.

Ok.  Here are the steps that I have taken.  I haven't gotten my wii remote to sync with my computer at all...(not even once).

1. Installed the CD that came with my Rocketfish USB bluetooth adapter.  The adapter was able to see that I had a remote in the room, but the blue lights on the remote would never stay on....they would just flash and then turn off.

2. I then began looking online and saw that several people were having the same problem.  It seemed that everyone was saying DO NOT use the installation cd with this specific bluetooth adapter, therefore, I un-installed it.

3. I then found my way to this website and after looking around for awhile, I found this thread http://www.wiimoteproject.com/bluetooth-and-connectivity-help-center/'no-wiimotes-found-in-hid-device-list'-error-for-boon-jin's-smoothboard/msg5865/
This guy sounds EXACTLY like me....but still couldn't get the wii remote to sync.  I tried running Thex's auto connect program, but it seemed to no do anything.

4.  I read a thread about this http://www.shootingsoftware.com/Widcomm.htm .  I found the bth file, as shown in my previous post screen shot and added the line as described.  However, I don't think I got the correct hardware ID.  Looking at my device manager, I do not see a generic USB place as people are describing.  This is what i'm working with (Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 btw)



BEN,
I right clicked on the Broadcom place at the top of my device manager and went to UNINSTALL DRIVERS, but whenever I plug the usb adapter back in, the Broadcom thing shows up again in Device Manager.

More details on what and where to uninstall would be greatly appreciated.

Are you sure you follow the exact steps in: http://www.shootingsoftware.com/Widcomm.htm this should fix your problem?

benpaddlejones :)

I checked out that link.  However it says that the device should be labeled as a USB Device.  I dont see that.  Here is a screenshot
