Hello folks, anyone bought a BlueSmirf device recently? I'm having difficulty getting it to connect.
I power it up, red led flashes quickly for a bit ( I think this means I can enter command mode) then just flashes more slowly, I think both modes mean waiting for connection.
I'm using vista, unfortunately ...
I search for devices using my bluetooth dongle in the pc and it finds the device, called "firefly", and then I click to "pair" with the device which I assume is vista's stupid term for "connect".
I've tried this loads of times and it's failed every time but once. The time it did "pair" it created 2 com ports, one for outgoing and one for incoming, COM9 and COM10. I then tried to use COM9 in hyperterminal but it wouldn't allow this. I could connect to COM10.
The other thing is that apparently there's a pairing key, which I think just means passkey, that I can type in for authentication. I don't know if the bluesmirf device has a key or not, I found a few things saying "1234" but don't know if that's the case for mine or not and I don't get any errors that would clarify the situation.
The lack of documentation on this device is rediculous, anyone know where I can get an offical manual or datasheet? Or had similar problems and solved them?
