A Bluetooth device may be only paired with one thing at a time.
You need to delete/uninstall them from your previous computer.

Just bought brand new apple wireless keyboard and got the same "device does nto have the necessary services" when trying to pair with my Mac Pro. The keyboard is discovered immediately by bluetooth setup, but it won;t connect. Any thoughts?

I have a Linux partition on my iMac. I paired my magic trackpad to it last night.
I am currently using my mac as a mac and the bluetooth will not pair with it. Error: This device does not have the necessary services.
Someone mentions to delete the pairing on the other computer (which I assume would be my Linux distro) -- but I don't understand how my bluetooth will know I deleted it? Does he mean to delete it while I'm using my Linux distro?
There has got to be a way to use this with both my mac and linux. It's the same exact computer -- same bluetooth hardware being paired.

I am using a Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad as well as BT keyboard all at the same time on my Macbook running Mountain lion.
when I tried to set up the BT device from the browse menu... that is when I got "This device does not have the necessary services."
However after it showed up in the device list I clicked cancel and went into the set up BT device and highlighted whichever device I wanted set up and clicked continue. the only interaction I needed from there was from the Keyboard.. as it wanted me to type in a key code and the return key. Done.
Hope this helps!

I have got the same problem today and I easily solved it. Instead of connect to the devices using the "Browse device" where I have the same error than you, I went to "Set Up Bluetooth Device" and it works perfectly.

I took your advice and it worked like a champ! Jamming with my bluetooth headphones now. Thanks!

Awesome!! Exactly how all mine work! I am using all 3 at once!
clicked cancel and went into the "set up BT device" and highlighted whichever device I wanted set up and clicked continue.

Using "Set Up Bluetooth Device" from the dropdown did it, thanks!

That's it man!! Thank you so much!! I've been looking for one week how to connect my Belkin Bluetoogh audio receiver to my Macbook Pro with no luck. "Set Up Bluetooth Device" is the key.
Still my problem is that it doesn't sound as good as conected. It's like if it would be mono instead of stereo. The voice in every song is like a bit faded. Some else had this??

Thanks for this. I had a Bluetooth mouse that simply stopped working with my MBP over a year ago. I was able to pair it to my desktop fine but since it's a portable mouse, I need it more for the laptop. After trying to pair it with another machine and getting the error, I used the Bluetooth setup and it paired just fine. Maybe the time away helped.

I don't believe that any posts on this site are from real people. Surely you are all Apple employees? Bluetooth doesn't work on my iPhone when connecting to my MacBook Pro; neither does my son's iPod Touch. However, his Blackberry connects no problem. It really isn't good enough. Instead of ripping the customers off with ever more expensive products, including features we neither want nor need, why don't you get the simple things right, such as Bluetooth, working properly?
