Did you Repair Disk Permissions before you ran the Bluetooth Firmware installer?
After that did you use the Bluetooth Setup Assistant?
You should only have one System on your computer, 10.4.2 ?
(you listed other systems)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 17, 2005 7:33 AM (in response to Larc)Thanks for replying Larc,
Yes, I repaired disk permissions, repaired disk and created a new clean user, as suggested somewhere in these forums, but the updater still fails to download the firmware to the d-Link adapter.
Using the Bluetooth Setup Assistant does'nt help because it gives the "Headsets not supported" message.
I am using Tiger 10.4.2 on a Powermac G4. I have 3 disks, so I installed earlier versons of Mac OS X on the 2 disks left to try the Firmware update but it didn't work. I also have an eMac with 10.4.1.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2005 6:27 AM (in response to Carlos Lopes)Success!
I was about to give up but mad a last attempt.
First installed a fresh system 10.4.0 without migrating any settings/users, then applied the Firmware update and it worked.
I am finally able to skype with my Plantronics M2500!
Currently Being ModeratedSep 21, 2005 1:45 PM (in response to Larc)I've also been having problems installing the Firmware updater 1.2 and the Bluetiith update 1.5. It seems to install okay, but when I go to run the Bluetooth Serial Utility or Bluetoo Setup Assistant, I get the message
'No Bluetooth Hardware found. In order to use this application, you must have a Bluetooth module. Please verify that your Bluetooth hardware is properly attached to the computer.'.
I've got a PowerBook G4 and it does have a BT module, which used to work, but it now says Bluetooth: Not available. I've read other posts on this and have tried various suggestions with no luck. My problem is not intermitent, it has been gone for a couple of months and has not made an appearence. COuld my internal module be damaged or is this a system bug? I'm running OS X 10.3.9.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2005 12:08 PM (in response to Carlos Lopes)I am having similar problems as well. I have previously been able to connect my Blackberry to my Mac (is a discoverable item on my PDA) and a printer. I just went to connect to a new bluetooth capable printer and I'm getting the message that I have no Bluetooth hardware and there is no information available on my computer for it.
HELP!Powerbook G4 15", Mac OS X (10.4.3)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2006 8:03 AM (in response to Carlos Lopes)I had the same problem. M2500 from Plantronics worked fine under Panther, then I upgraded to Tiger and it didn't work anymore. The pairing worked, but the device was not recognized in Sound In/Out.
Here is what you need to fix this problem:
1. Tiger Developer Tools installation
Here is what you need to do:
1. In Finder select "Go" from the Finder menu, then select "Go to Folder" and type in the following path: /Developer/Applications/Utilities/Bluetooth/
2. Double click on "Bluetooth Explorer"
3. Select "Utilities -> Show Device Cache"
4. Now you should see a list of devices, and you should also see the M2500. Select M2500 and click on "Delete Selected Devices".
5. Close the Device Cache window and quit out of Bluetooth Explorer.
6. Now click on the "Apple Menu" top left corner and select "System Preferences" and click on the "Bluetooth" icon to bring up the Bluetooth preferences.
7. Select the "M2500 by Plantronics" item in the "Bluetooth Devices:" list and delete it.
8. Now click on the "Device" tab and select "Set Up New Device..." and follow the setup pairing process. (the pairing code is "0000").
- Step 1 should be "Introduction" - click Continue
- Step 2 should be "Select Device Type" - select "Headset" and click on Continue
- Step 3 should be "Bluetooth Headset Set Up" - Now bring your M2500 in pairing mode (turn on headset by pressing and holding the on/off/volume up/volume down button. Once headset is turned on push the volume switch to the up position, hold it and press the talk button by the microphone until the light flashes red and green continuously). Now the M2500 is in pairing mode and you should see the M2500 in the list of discovered headset devices. Select it and click the "Continue" button.
- Step 4 should ask you for the pairing code. Type in "0000" (4 zeros) and press the button to proceed.
- Now the computer should gather additional info and .... voila.... M2500 paired and set up.
Have a look in the Sound - System Preferences panel. You will now see that "M2500 by Plantronics" is usable and selectable in the Output and Input panel.
Now you can set up so that iChat uses your headset for sound in and out.
Hope that helps.Powerbook G4 17 1GHz, Mac OS X (10.2.x)
