    Missing Vista bluetooth headset profiles

    My bluetooth headset no longer works after "upgrading" XP Pro to Vista. Apparently, Vista only
    contains profiles for keyboard and mouse at this moment.

    Comments?

    So that explains why my Motorola bluetooth headset doesn't work. It
    finds it, but then it's gone from the list of devices after a few
    mins.... I guess this is one of the little "fixes" we'll have to wait for.

    I think it depends on the drivers shipped for the device. Certainly I've
    managed to use Bluetooth to connect my headset to the PC, connect my mobile
    phone to the internet through my home network, use the computer headset to
    answer my mobile, and a few other jobbies too....

    OK. I had to uninstall and then install the Dell drivers again. All is good.

    Thanks
