USB 3.0 Windows 7 issues - no audio
Posted on 2013-06-19
I have a Digitus Bluetooth 3.0 USB dongle and on Windows 7 x64 computers I cannot load up any audio devices.
With a Bluetooth 2.x dongle the lieks of Bluetooth headsets seem to work fine, with Bluetooth 3.0 although I have re-added the devices and set the likes of Headset to Enable, the devices do not show up under "Sound, Video & Game Controllers"
This is a bit frustrating as a new Plantronics Voyager Legend headset (BT3.0 capable) we got in for a SoftPhone (Hybrid PABX) is connected with all bluetooth options enabled but we cannot set it as the device to use. On my PC the Bluetooth 2.1 USB dongle seems to have died and they are getting harder to get.
I have tried the same make/model dongle on another Win7 PC with the same results. Another headset is Bluetooth 2.1 and although it is installed does the same thing....
The dongle is a Broadcom BCM2070 chipset and I have updated the drivers already to see if it was that...
