Recently I installed an IOGear Bluetooth USB micro adapter into my desktop computer running Windows Vista. The installation went smoothly, almost instantaniously, in fact. Vista recognized the device immediately and installed the drivers for it within less than 20 seconds.
After this I paired my Plantronics Voyager 510 with my computer by putting the PLT-510 in pairing mode (while the headset is powered on, hold both the button on the mic arm and the volume up button until the light keeps flashing red and blue in succession) and then right-clicking the handy Bluetooth icon in the system tray and then selecting “add a bluetooth device”.
The headset paired with my PC, and Vista tried to install drivers for it, which failed. None could be located online automatically and Plantronics hadn’t included a driver disk with the headset.
The solution for me was to install the Broadcom updated drivers for Bluetooth so that the profiles are updated. You can download them from here: http://www.broadcom.com/support/license.php?file=SetupBtwDownloadSE.exe
After this is done and you connect the Vista PC to the Voyager 510 again then it should correctly detect the device and register with the Windows audio services. If you intend to use it to Skype calls or whatnot, make sure to select it as the default recording device in the sound properties. To do this you simply right click the volume icon in the system tray and select “recording devices”. It’ll show the Voyager listed in there if it’s installed properly; which it should be if you followed my instructions above.
