    Is there any thread, or discussion, on how to get Bluetooth up and running, on XP? I am in the process of installing Win 7 in my shot, but am going to maintain XP upstairs. And I would like to know how to do this with the older OS. I have tried a detailed search, using several different approaches, and nothing so far.

    I am particularly interested in using any one of my computers as an audio player, in order to use my extensive audio library.

    I currently have Bluetooth drivers, for my IOGear GBU 321, installed on my XP, which have proven easier to use than the Microsoft stack. However, I cannot get the software to identify/accept my two older Bluetooth devices. Also, I cannot get it to broadcast, via my Cowan-Jet Audio music player. I'm doing something wrong, but don't know what to do in order to correct this.

    Help would be greatly appreciated.
