I just purchased a USB MICRO BLUETOOTH  adaptor. Brand = Azio. Model = BTD-V400. I followed the install instructions. All seemed to go well. However, the "Manual" is a joke. I have NO idea how to utilize this item. It does show up in my control panel. I wish to sent files to and from an android smartphone that is at the adaptor. I see nothing as far as making it discoverable or how to link it to any external device. Their website, as far as I can see is no help either. Is this something far more simple than I perceive it? Am I missing something here? My computer is a Dell T7500 workstation. When I try to display available devices on my phone, this item is not one of them. I assumed that this item would have some sort of program that would allow changing of parameters and pairing options. Can anyone give me some hints?

Perhaps of some help.
Those who wrote reviews on Amazon.com for this product made no mention of the lack of documentation.  They also seem to use MS drivers instead of those from Azio.

I never thought of using the Microsoft driver. I'll bet that does the trick. If not, I'll give them a call Monday. Thanks for your assistance.
