:thumbsup:

Edit: I think this may have been another misprice. And they are going to honour the few that actually got in this time. This is of course just an assumption.

I have just searched play and the item has been removed. Expect to see it show up later at an inflated price peeps.

Welcome to HUKD pollman :)

Is there a specific model number ?
#26
model number ABC10 if that's any help.
#27
Got mine this morning. Same no drivers. Search in [url]www.targus.com[/url] and only find model ACB10 - Strange!
Downloaded the drivers - still doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
#28

no software,doesn't work.

till today had a good experience with play.com
#30
Mine was also posted on the 20th and still awaiting today's post.

Although from the feedback It looks like I will be very disappointed.

Has anyone had any luck making it work?
#33
I am getting the same as everyone else. I have installed the software from the site and it installs all the drivers but won't recognise the adaptor due to the license.
#34
Found this but still no success

Question
I have Windows XP with SP2 and have installed the Targus Drivers. When I right-click on the Bluetooth icon and choose "Start Using Bluetooth", I get an error message saying "Your Bluetooth Software License does not include use with this Bluetooth device"

Answer
If you get this error message, please follow the steps below:

Unplug the Bluetooth device from your computer

If you have any additional Bluetooth software installed other than the Windows drivers, uninstall it and REBOOT your computer.

Install the WIDCOMM BTW 1.4.2.10 Bluetooth software (Targus software). When it asks you to plug in the Bluetooth device and click OK, click Cancel instead

When the WIDCOMM setup has finished, plug in your Bluetooth device and let Windows install the driver. (There may be two Bluetooth icons in the system tray; one blue-white: this is the Windows driver - and one blue-red: this is the WIDCOMM driver which is deactivated.)

If there are 2 Bluetooth icons then,

Now go to the Device Manager (Control Panel / System / choose the Hardware tab and select Device Manager/ Bluetooth Radios) , right click on the "Generic Bluetooth Radio" and select "update driver".

Follow the steps that appear on the screen in the Hardware Update Wizard. In the Hardware Update Wizard. When it asks you whether you want Windows Update to search for software, select the option 'No not this time'. Click Next.

Select 'install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Click Next.

Select the last option- 'Do not search, I will choose the driver to install'. Click Next.

Click 'Have Disk....’ Then select the browse option and point it to the CD-ROM location as follows: D:\Software\btwusb.inf. Click OK and follow the on-screen instructions

Now the WIDCOMM system tray icon should be blue-white as well, activated and ready to use.

If you now double click on "My Bluetooth Places" (e.g. on the desktop), the WIDCOMM software installation will be continued and finished.

WOW. Now that's the first bad exprerience I have had from Play.com. I have used them for over 4 years now.

I too received the Adapter just on it's own in a jiffy envelope. Struggling to get the thing to work too.

[COLOR="Red"]Anyone had any success yet?[/COLOR]

Wasn't sure if they would work but they are the drivers that tend to get sent with the chinese tat on ebay:thumbsup:
#39
Thanks Shengis at least it is working now. It is a pity only 5mb can be downloaded at one time. I am still thinking of sending it back to Play.
#40
marvelous installed drivers rebooted now windows wont start up not even in safe mode,cant believe play could ship these items without any drivers or docs,serious complaint going in.

obviously now i have a conflict i cant cure and so will have to reinstall windows.
