    Bluetooth Dongle (ISSCEDRBTA) Driver for Windows XP SP2 and SP3

    Purchased one of those cheap USB dongles for only 5 dollars but found to use it you need to spend money on the software? Or if you have found a cracked version or actually bought it and found its useless and wanted to use the built in Bluetooth in Windows XP SP2 or 3? Well now you can!

    USB Bluetooth Dongle:

    (Note: Design can vary and may not look like above)

    What I have done is modified the Bluetooth driver file that comes with XP SP2, to include this dongle by adding its hardware ID to the supported devices list.

    Before you can install this, you must make sure you have updated your XP to at least Service Pack 2, as this included the Bluetooth Support Addon.

    To install, download and extract all the files somewhere, like for example on your desktop in a folder called Bluetooth drivers. Then plug the stick in, Windows will fail to find the drivers and ask you to either provide a location for them, or provide a CD. Provide the location and give Windows the folder location of the extracted drivers. Windows will now install the drivers and your Dongle will be ready for use.
    You should now be up and running with the Windows Bluetooth Interface, which you can find in Control Panel or in the System Tray.

    You have now got a dirt cheap Bluetooth Adaptor to work fully without having to pay extra for any rubbish software.

    Information:

    Download is below for Windows XP SP2 and above.

    If your using Windows Vista (either 32-bit or 64-bit) you may be interested in the Vista version of these drivers located at:

    Thank you :)

    Why won't it download for you? At the bottom of the post you can see the file (BluetoothXP.zip). Just click it and it should download. If not, try right clicking --> save target as.

    Looks like a good idea, but .... even though I've registered and logged in, the site claims I'm linking from another site (I'm not) and gives an ugly warning about leechers. What is up with that??

    It's most likely a conflict with a security package you have installed on your PC such as Norton Internet Security or another similar package from another company. Software like this can sometimes block the referring URL you clicked the download link from, this means the Digiex web server is unable to tell if you clicked on the link from Digiex or another website, this can cause the error about leeching the download.

    You can disable such software and try and download the driver again, if that doesn’t work send me a private message with your email address and I'll send you the drivers.

    Hey there, it will be possible to hack these drivers to work in Windows XP X64, however at the time the drivers were originally hacked no one at Digiex had a 64bit XP install to do this.

    Nimrod is currently on holiday and won’t be back for at least another week, if you check back then or send him a message he should be able to help you get the Bluetooth dongle working on XP 64bit.

    Hi Nimrod,

    Thanks very much for your work on this. I'll be happy to donate a few dollars to your cause if you can help me to get this to work on my computer.

    What I've done:
    -Connect USB dongle
    -Found New Hardware wizard
    -Locate downloaded files (from digiex.net)
    -Get an error message: "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware."

    It won't let me get past this point. Any ideas?

    The crappy USB dongle in question is a Ritmo CB-545 and it came with the BlueSoleil software (evaluation version only, otherwise I probably wouldn't have complained to start with..)
    ... and I'm using Win XP SP2.

    Thanks in advance! You can hold me to that donation offer through PayPal - I trust you can view my email address via your admin CP (I use the same address for PayPal). :)

    It is not working for me on XP Sp3. It says driver not found even though I specify the driver folder or force it in advanced and have disk. I have the horrible bluesoleil v2.6.0.8 that came with it...but I am finding it difficult(impossible) to get my Palm to connect with ActiveSync.

    To clear things up, are you actually talking about the driver on the CD or the driver we are providing?

    If windows ignores the driver we are providing then its not suitable for your device.

    Installation of driver from cd went ok but the program doesnt detect the dongle, so i uninstalled it and downloaded this one, did everything as written in 1st post but as i already said, when i point the wizard to folder it just skips like nothing is there. I think i have this device cause in device manager its described as ISSCEDRBTA and its identical as one in pic.

    Then either its not the same for some reason (perhaps they changed their hardware?) or Windows is refusing the drivers because it thinks it has good enough ones. Go onto the Device in Device Manager and delete its current drivers then try to replace with these.

    Tried it and it doesnt work, then during wizard i chose option not to install, will choose drivers and then tried bluetooth device and bluetooth radio and then pointed installation to bth.inf only to get message "the location does not contain information about your hardware". Im starting to think the dongle is malfunctioned from the start, i'll just go and buy myself a decent one this time.

    So i gave it one last shot, i found in IVT Readme some commands to add in .inf files in BlueSoleil folder and sys32 if device doesnt work properly, tried that and it didnt worked so i changed VID and PID number in commands to ones from device manager dongle properties page, that didnt work either. Im off to buy another dongle, any recommendations ?
