Third day trying to get it to work. Still not having any luck.
I have a Toshiba Portege 3480 laptop. Recently i purchased a Blueooth Dialup Modem and a USB Bluetooth Dongle.
Everything hooked up in 10 minutes and i was very happy with my system apart from the Bluetooth Dongle sticking way too out for me.
So i decided to ditch the USB dongle for a CF verson. Off i go and buy one together with a PCMCIA adapter to suit.
I install the new software/drivers for the CF card and so help me G**, ive spent all day truying to get the thing to talk to my modem.
When i do eventually get it working, i undock the laptop and low and behold the stupid laptop wont recognise the card and im forced to re-set the CF card up again. This time i have no luck in getting the CF card to work.
When i re-dock the laptop with the CF still in place, it refuses to work.
Like i said, ive spent all day trying to get the CF card to work. Im so angry at moment that i feel like throwing the whole thing out the window.
USB was soooooo easy but as i said the dongle stuck too far out and was simply too flimsy.
Im now considering purchasing a smaller USB dongle, but ive just spent $80.00 AUD on the bloody CF bluetooth card that wont work. AND to i cant take it back for a refund.
Can anyone offer any suggestions to one very frustrated Aussie PC user?
