Have you ever been able to connect a bluetooth device of any kind to this computer using this dongle (mouse, keyboard, phone)?

Reply to Aggie Mac Master's Post: I have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse connected to the dongle as well ad my iphone. All three of these items paired without any problems
Alright, I found the problem.

The problem is in Mac OS X 10.4, it doesn't support A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile).

In the Jabra BT620s User Manual, it says the device it connects to must support Bluetooth 1.1 or 1.2 and that the Advanced Audio
Distribution Profile (A2DP) is active, or it will not work.

http://www.jabra.com/sites/Jabra/GNImages/Products/WirelessHeadset/BT620s/Documents/BT620s_UM_NA_EN_454.pdf

You are set on the Bluetooth front, because your D-Link 120 dongle is Bluetooth 2.0.

http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=34&sec=0

So what you need to do is add the A2DP to your computer, and there are solutions for Tiger:

The first solution is Softick Audio Gateway for Mac OS X.

Softick Audio Gateway captures digital audio from Mac OS X CoreAudio subsystem and redirects it to any compatible Bluetooth A2DP device such as Bluetooth headsets, headphones or speakers.

It can be downloaded here:
http://www.softick.com/macosx/audio-gateway/index.php?page=1&new_lang=en


The other thing you could do is upgrade to Leopard. Leopard provides native A2DP support.

I hope I was able to help you today, and if I can help with anything else, do not hesitate to ask.

I have just ordered the softstick Audio Gateway software. I have tried so many things as soon as I get the confirmation and can download this program and see that it works I will definately click the accept. I have spent like 12 hours on the phone with the headset manufacturer tech people and also Apple support and got no where except look at this info and it basically comes back to it won't work. So I will reply as soon as I can get this program from Softstick. They said it could take up to 2 hours. Hope that is ok.
Just download the beta that is above to try it out before paying for it:

http://www.softick.com/download_script.php?prog_version_id=89&site_type=1

See if it works for you.
Ask Your Own Mac Question
I was hoping to find you a free solution, it just escaped me to recommend downloading beta. I thought you would see that at the top.

Here is another free solution, with a video explanation of installation:

http://blog.david.connolly.name/2007/06/stereo-bluetooth-profile-a2dp-on-mac-os.html

I will keep searching to find you the best solution!
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 9 years ago
I downloaded the Softstick program and when I try to open it I get this error (No A2DP audio driver is found Please re install Softstick Audio Gateway) The program shows up in my applications file
Try the second solution at:

http://blog.david.connolly.name/2007/06/stereo-bluetooth-profile-a2dp-on-mac-os.html

The Softstick program might not be Universal, so it might not work on PPC machines. This second solution is Universal so it should work for you.

Let me know if it does, or doesn't work. There is one other way to get it to work but it is very involved, so I want to exhaust these two easier methods first.

I opened iTunes and the sound is not coming from the headset. do I need to pair the headset? or switch so that they are the ones the sound is coming from?
Did you restart your computer?

No you didn't tell me to I'll close all of the programs now and restart the computer. Give me about a couple of minutes. BRB

OK As soon as I restarted my computer This error poped up:

SYSTEM EXTENSION CANNOT BE USED.
The system xtension "/System/Library/Extension/AudioReflectorDriver.kext" was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contacting the vendor for an update.

I had to click ok so that I could continue to load my desktop. No sound came out of the headset.
so it looks like we have to install that one the way they wanted, lets just do that part. It should work if we can get that done.

remember thats a zip file and we unzipped it and I put the one file in my hard drive file?? Yes it is in the a2dp file but the one file I had to validate. I think that is the file it is talking about because this is the same error I got when I validated it.
I don't think we will be able to get this to work.

To make sure you don't get that error at start up, delete
AudioReflectorDriver.kext from /System/Library/Extensions

I'm sorry I couldn't get this to work for you. I recommend that you upgrade to Leopard, it is what I use and it does support a2dp.

Thanks for this adventure tonight!

OK How do I delete this file so I don't get this error?
Go to XXXXX>System>Library>Extensions

and just drag AudioReflectorDriver.kext to the trash

and restart your computer.

Thanks I kinda had my hopes high when we got this far.
Customer reply replied 9 years ago
Took some time to find that file in error and remove it but 2 hrs later finally got my computer to start up without the error. Thanks for the long hours or work. I did things with this computer I would have never tried alone. We were able to get this to work but I appriciate your trying. The money is being sent in good faith because of all of your help. So wish I could have gottten it to work. I just ordered the New Mac OS 10.5 Hope to never have to do this again. But If I did it would have to be with someone as patient and caring as you!
Thanks

One last question this whole thing has personal info about my computer and my name and all will this all be displayed for everyone to see? Anyway to get it taken off? Thanks again.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
