    In order to attempt to answer your question I will unfortunately need to make assumptions based on my estimated translation of your post. My assumptions are the following:

    • the operating system you are using is Windows, most likely XP;
    • you have purchased and installed a USB Bluetooth dongle, using the CD software provided;
    • the device you are trying to get your PC to communicate with via Bluetooth is your mobile phone/PDA;
    • when you say your Bluetooth "is on", you mean either the software on your PC or the dongle itself gives you some sort of indication of this.

    Now, hoping these assumptions are anywhere approaching the reality of your situation, my recommendations would be the following:

    • first make sure both the software on your PC and your phone/PDA/device has Bluetooth enabled (I know, I know - doh, but you never know);
    • make sure both the PC software and the device are advertising their availability - most devices need this in order to detect each other;
    • both ends of the connection may need to be "authenticated", usually by the means of a code/pin/password entered on both pieces of software.

    Should all/none of the information provided above make any sense or not apply to your situation, please update this thread with more information relevant to your situation, so that anyone trying to help you can make more informed suggestions.

    Hope this helps!
