    Default Bluetooth Headphones issue for M17x R3

    I have a pair of Jabra Halo bluetooth headphones and I would like to use them for my M17x R3. I have been able to sync them with the laptop but I am unable to get sound to them. They work perfectly with my iPhone. I am hoping someone can help. Thanks.

    The R3 doesn't come with the Widcomm BT stack which you need for audio. Download the drivers from the Dell website and everything should work.

    I can't seem to find the driver you are talking about on Dell's website. Could you give me the full name of the driver I need and what category it is under?

    I tried to install the Broadcom bluetooth software and when I try to install it I get this message. "The Bluetooth Adapter cannot be turned off at this time because one of the installed Bluetooth devices, probably a keyboard, does not allow the disable operation." Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

    I've never seen that error before but at the risk of sounding like I'm stating the obvious, did you unpair all your devices before trying to install the driver?

    Actually I did not unpair. I have now unpaired my BT mouse and I am still having issues it's telling me to "Please plug in or turn on your Bluetooth device." The internal bluetooth is on so I am not sure what to do next. Any advice? Thanks.

    I can't see to find the driver either, Shadow. Can you link us? I want to try it with my PS3 controllers.
