    I want to use bluetooth under PD 4.0 build 3540 in oder to synchronize my mobile phone with Lotus Notes. I managed to connect the VM to the Apple Bluetooth USB Host Controller. Thereafter, I was able to carry out the first steps of mounting the mobile phone to the VM. The Bluetooth device manager found the mobile phone generated an access code which I typed into the phone and send it to the VM.

    There, the problem started: the connection between the Apple bluetooth transceiver and the VM broke down and the mobile phone was disconnected from the VM. The icon in the VM's bluetooth controller next to "Apple Bluetooth USB Host Controller" disappeared but the Apple bluetooth device was not released by the VM so it was not accessible anymore until the VM was shut down.

    Any hint how to avoid this problem - or how to make bluetooth work in the VM? With PD 3.0 there was no such problem.

    MBP 2,16 GHz MacOS 10.4.11 German
    PD 4.0 build 3540

    Me too!!!

    I'm having a very similiar problem with Outlook and by BlackBerry 8830. I'm **EAGER** for a solution to this problem, because this configuration was the "approved" / "recommended" solution to my problem last time:

    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=13380

    Here's my configuration:

    MacBook w/ Leopard 10.5.5
    XP Pro SP2 in Boot Camp partition
    Parallels Desktop 4.0 (Build 3540)
    Verizon Wireless BlackBerry 8830
    BlackBerry Desktop Manager v4.2.2.12 (on the XP system)

    Thanks!!!

    Any progress?

    I was told to subscribe to this thread by one of the support team at Parallels, but it doesn't look like there's been any movement on this since April 2008. Any Parallels folks got any updates?

    I've only had the problem since upgrading to Parallels Desktop 4.0. Tried installing the Bluetooth drivers from the Leopard OS X install DVD, but there appears to be a problem reading the DVD from the Windows VM.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Build 3810 not fixing it for Palm Centro

    Today I downloaded and installed PD version 4, build 3810.

    USB and/or Bluetooth still not working at all with my Palm Centro. It just fails a little slower.

    * * *
    When Windows XP tries to copy a file to the Centro's expansion card, as a USB mass storage device, the Centro dismounts and disappears with an improper put-away alert box. In the previous build of PD4, the Mac would have a kernel panic.

    * * *
    When the Centro tries to hotsync over USB with the Palm Desktop software, as before there is a game of, "is it enabled now... or not enabled now?" but Windows loses the device as soon as it finds it, and the Centro never can connect with Palm Desktop.

    * * *
    Hotsyncing over Bluetooth is impossible, because the Bluetooth radio still won't install.

    Formerly, Bluetooth installation failed with this message:

    The following hardware was installed:

    Apple Bluetooth Driver

    The software for this device is now installed, but may not work correctly.

    This device cannot start. (Code 10)



    After the update, the error condition has changed. Now when I inspect Device Properties for Apple Built-In Bluetooth, it gives device status as, "Reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18)."

    But you can't reinstall the drivers, because now the Found New Hardware Wizard says:

    Cannot Install This Hardware

    There was a problem installing this hardware:

    Apple Built-in Bluetooth

    An error occurred during the installation of the device.
    The required section was not found in the INF.


    Apple Boot Camp is installed in version 2.1, which was the most recent as of earlier today.

    The driver File Details window is attached here FYI.

    Give up and build new VM in PD4

    Thanks for your reply, John. I'll let you know what happens. This is going to take me awhile.

    About the "somehow misconfigured," it must be misconfigured in a way that can't be cured by removing/reinstalling devices, updating drivers, fishing for leftover DLL files, or grooming the Registry (because I have done all of that).
