I can't seem to find a compatible USB Bluetooth for my Windows 8. Any suggestions?I purchased the Qualcomm Atheros AR3011 Bluetooth 3.0, where I was told that it was compatible with Windows 8 but my computer does not recognize it. I have all the other components (wii, IR pen) and am just stuck on how or where to the find proper Bluetooth adaptor. Any suggestions? Please help :) Thank you for your time

You want to try to get the USB adapters from our resellers such as listed on http://www.smoothboard.net/wiimote/resellers

The adapters should work with Windows 8.

If you have a Wii Remote Plus, you will need to use the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack as described here: http://www.smoothboard.net/wiiremoteplus
