Yes it will work but you shouldn't be having problems with IDE drives.
@ Brice sorry I didn't get a notice to tell me you had posted. You need to be careful when it comes to BT as it installs loads of virtual devices. I am guessing that you didn't actually pick the proper device id of the stick itself. Been there myself in the past and it took a few attempts to get the proper device.
thank you for your answer.
I am sure it is the right ID.
I think I have got a hardware problem.
If my computer is in hibernation since hours, if I turn on the pc, the BT stick is off.
If I reboot immediately after wake up (by reset or rebooting after complete wake up) the BT stick is on.
Try disabling the usb root hub that the BT dongle is on and see how that works.
Does anyone happen to have the PDF? the link seems to be down.
It will be back up soon, I have moved servers and redesigned my site.
I put it back for you, hope you find it useful.
Thanks. I ended up using the devcon help file to figure my way around. Although it didn't help my situation, the usb device would not reinitialize after hibertate regardless if it was disabled or not.
I am about to format the pc and try a fresh install. Hopefully that will help my situation (device did come out to hibernate on another pc properly).
I have a problem. Devcon works perfectly for my Bluetooth, but only after hibernation. If I cold boot the computer, the devcon commands will not work. I have to physically push the BT button on my laptop, and then I can enable and disable the bluetooth perfectly. If I go to device manager after a cold boot, there is no bluetooth devices anywhere until I push the button. Then I can enable and disable BT.
Also, my wireless is stopping hibernation which is draining my laptop battery. The hardware ID is the same for all my network adapters and when I do try to disable it, it only stops the card making a connection, which doesn't solve my problem. How can I rectify this?
Thankyou for your help.

How are you running Devcon in a cold boot? You shouldn't ever have to use Devcon on a normal boot and that's not what it is designed for. If devices don't load properly on a cold boot then you have something very wrong on your install.
