Works fine. Plug and play installation in Win 7. Didn't use the CD it came with. The windows drivers worked right out of the box. However, I did go and update the driver version to the latest manually by visiting the website URL specified in the packaging.

This product did not install properly - the software HUNG UP every time I tried to install it. Then, when using the control panel software removal tools, I could not delete it becuse the installation was incomplete. In its incomplete mode it could not retain the information on it services settings on reboot. When trying to reinstall the program it would stop, indicating that it could not proceed because a previous installation was in progress. Truly a catch twentytwo - you can't delete it and can't reinstall it for same reason "the previous installation is incomplete. After observing the install files in Task Manager Processes I was able to figure out which files to delete (always dangerous). This allowed the program to go into an undocumented mode where it started to delete the previous installation before it restarted the install process. I was able to stop the re-install process after it deleted the previously installed files, and then use the control panel's uninstall tool to delete this hellish software. Nowhere in the documentation is a mention of an uninstall method. I am taking this product back to store to get my money back. Too bad I won't be able to get my time back - that I wasted on this poorly design software.I replaced this unit with one that was 9$ vs the [$] Targus unit (both units had the small form factor). The 9$ unit worked with the native XP BT drivers and does everything that the Targus unit claims at less than half the price(and far less installation and uninstallation time).Finally - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIMME OR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT.

Love this Bluetooth Adapter

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

I misplaced my adapter so I am grateful to have been able to pick up another one. I missed listening to my Bose speaker whether for music or webinars. I love this Targus Bluetooth Adapter! Only negative is that it is so tiny, it gets lost easily. There should be a little loop so you can attach it to a key ring or something.

Shows Connection

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

This was purchased to link phone to computer. It shows I have a connection but for some reason cannot get any information from my phone to the computer or vice versa. I also cannot find any information on how to do this through the Targus website or product support.

Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter by Targus

Comments about Targus USB Bluetooth Adapter:

I went to Staples and explained that my computer needed Bluetooth capability and asked if they carried any adapters. The salesman immediately showed me this one and asked me what I was going to use it with in order to make sure that this would work for me. I explained that I was going to hook up my new Cricut Explore and that I had already purchased the Bluetooth adapter for it only to find out that my desk top was not Bluetooth ready. I have installed the Targus USB Bluetooth adapter and it is working beautifully. Thank you so much!
