1) in the Bluetooth Devices window, it does not show any devices, (although the device is working I checked it on another laptop). The I was able to recognise the Nokia phone ONCE - the first time I set it up, and then it disappeared forever. The laptop is NOT recognizing any
2) In the device manager window the Bluetooth USB is shown on the list of devices. Details of the Device manager are listed below.

The properties window show:
device type: Bluetooth USB
manufacturer: IVT Corporation
Port: Port_#0004.Hub_#0001

Device is working properly.

In the driver tab:
Driver manufacturer: IVT Corporation
Driver date: 2007-03-05
Diver version: 6.0.12.56

you have to go into the bluetooth connection utility on the laptop and have it search for devices and also set the devices you want to find as 'discoverable' .. once discovered you have to setup the handshaking between them.  You may have to remove the device from the phone to reinitate the hadnshake routine. The biggest problem I've found is the password is different and the machine and device failing to handshake because of remembered passwords.
