  • D-Link DBT120 ver. B4 problems?


    This FAQ only applies to DBT-120 revision B4 units with a MAC Address that starts with 0011.

    I just wanted to share this with everyone incase you had the same problem I did.

    I bought this BT device retail, forgot my cd and kept getting some stupid licensing pop-up error every 1 minute.

    It took me 2 hours to find the solution on D-Links website. I asked that they move this link to the DBT-120 support site, but that might make too much sence.

    Anyway, If you are running XP/home/pro with SP1 and are having problems connecting your DBT-120 ver B4 bluetooth usb device, check this out!!

    Incase the link goes bad, here is the content minus pics.

    What do I do if I get error message Valid security code not found. or Your Bluetooth Software license does not include use with this Bluetooth device [6] after installing the Bluetooth software?

    Note: This FAQ only applies to DBT-120 revision B4 units with a MAC Address that starts with 0011.

    Step 1 Uninstall the current software for the DBT-120 in Add/Remove Programs.

    Note: During Step E you will need to go into the different ports and delete all the grayed out Bluetooth devices.

    Step 4 Remove all Bluetooh Devices.

    Step 5 Reboot your computer.

    Update to above post.

    The information posted above was great, but the link did not come through on the site where you can get the driver. So here is the actual site that I found the documenation at.

    And if you want to go straight to the download here it is.

    This driver is not on their website under the dbt120 drivers.

    Hope this helps anyone else struggling with this device.
