  • Computer Chat iTouch 3.0 & Windows Vista - Bluetooth question

    Hey everyone... bluetooth noob here.

    I'm not sure why, but I cannot seem to be able to connect my iTouch (2G originally, upgraded to 3G) to Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit)

    I'm using a Dell Studio 1737, with a Dell Bluetooth 370 mini-card. Anyone have any ideas how to get the iTouch connected via Bluetooth?

    Also, I tried connecting via Bluetooth on Ubuntu 9.04, with no luck.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Windows supports bluetooth, and so does the ipod touch.

    So just say : find discoverable devices, and pair them.

      Both devices are discoverable, looking for connections and you know the password? Little more information on the point of failure would help.

        Yes, but there's a problem with the drivers, saying that there's something missing (Bluetooth Peripheral Device) and it seems like everyone has had this problem. I've done a bunch of googling, and found a few results, but nothing for the iTouch. I tried the solutions anyways, with no result.

          I heard the iPhone (3G, i don't know for 3GS) have limited use of Bluetooth. You can pair them, but you can't use them.

          As iPod Touch is nearly the same hardware than iPhone, this limitation could apply too.

            Maybe you should be using a mac with that phone.

            what error message are you getting when you are trying to connect via bluetooth?

            also you might have to look for an application on your iTouch phone that might allow you to go online without using bluetooth.

              What are you trying to use the Bluetooth for? If it's for tethering, does your carrier support it? If it's for file sharing, I don't think that's possible, only use of headphones etc.

              And schwab, why would you need to get a Mac?

                This "carrier" is my Dell laptop. The error message is posted above, where there is no "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" driver.

                I wanted to try out the Bluetooth, because I heard there was some way of using the speakers on your computer, while controlling the music from your iTouch from like across the room. Same with bluetooth speakers/headsets.

                Having a Mac would make no difference, besides the Mac automatically having the ability to use the iTouch's Bluetooth.

                    You need to download a driver from Apple's website if they made one available. Doesn't the iPod Touch support WiFi? Have you tried connecting using that?

                    Though I can understand about Bluetooth. I like being able to set my Blackberry on my desk and having it show up as a device so I can drag and drop items from it.

                      Apple Iphone/Touch Bluetooth can only connect to a bluetooth headset or a car kit.It can be paired with other devices but you can't send receive files.

                          Well... the BPI here and America's equivalent have obviously paid to ensure that files aren't illegally shared... or.... any file at all. Piracy.... who knows...
