    Hi all,

    Been reading this forum for a while now. Thank for the entertainment, information and interesting ...

    Not often I get stumped but I am at the moment. I upgraded my CF-30 HDD to a 120gig, reinstalled XP from scratch, loaded all the drivers, and all fine, almost.

    The BUT... there is always just one of these, after making sure the Bluetooth is engaged in the BIOS, the front switch is on and the software switch is on I fail to get the Bluetooth Manager to come up. Insert a bluetooth dongle and it pops up immediately and works a treat but the internal bluetooth appears invisible. It worked before with the old drive but now nothing.

    I'm sure there is something obvious that I can't see but it is beyond me.

    Any help would be appreciated. I am quite new to the CF-30 but the bluetooth worked before just not after the fresh install.

    Cheers,

    Fabian

    Fabian,

    Welcome to the forum!

    What you need is the software... And it can be a pain to find but is usually on one of Panny's sites in some country. A little too large to email, but is downloadable. You may try the links available in the Official CF-30 thread... or one of the other stickies... But if it is not there PLEASE post where you find it and I'll make sure it gets listed for the next person.

    You want to read about PARADISE?

    Read THIS about Tom Neale.... A different age and time, yes.... But I think every man would LOVE to do this... Whether on an island (Tropical preferably) or in the mountains or plains or...

    This is a GREAT read by the way.... You'll be sucked into it!

    My apologies for the dual hijacking of the thread.... :)

    Please let us know about the BT software and if it fixes it!
