Last night I set up my Wiimote Whiteboard and Ws so excited because I got it working. Then I started playing around with it and all of a sudden my computer was seeing the Wiimote, but not really talking to it. The blue lights were flashing and BlueSoleil saw the Wiimote, but then nothing there was neer a single blue light. I had installed Wiimote Smoothboard, but it was saying that there was no Wiimote connected.

I came here to find solutions but all I could find was stuff that said that the bluetooth dongle was not compatible, but I knew this wasn't true, because it had worked before that. I then backtracked and realised that for some reason, with Johnny Lee's Wiimote Whiteboard program at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/projects/wii/ it was fine, but when I installed Boon Jin's Smoothboard http://www.boonjin.com/wp/2008/07/22/wiimote-smoothboard-35 the flashing light thing happened. So I use them both and all is well with my world :o)

Just thought I'd post it for anyone else whose blue lights flash nonstop, and may be tempted to change their perfectly fine bluetooth dongle. Forgive me if this info is somewhere else as well.

Nice findings krisia

Backtracking is a good when trouble appears.
