    I've heard of this before I think. If I can remember correctly you have to disable the bluetooth device in windows and then reload bt.

    If not pastebin lspci and I'l see if I can help but it may be a kernel error ???

    and these messages repeat every 50 seconds or so....

    my guess is that the module the VMWare usb module is OK - wheras BT cannot talk to the hardware directly?

    i have read around that nix has issues switching on the bt radio, and that you need to use a tool dbabt that leverages the 'toshiba tools' for nix. (tried and cant get them to compile - will keep at it)

    i checked, and the kernel was compiled with the tosh support, so not really sure how to proceed....

    thanks for any pointers

    Have you tried disabling the adapter in the windows hardware manager before starting vmware? ?

    let me clarify:

    in my hdd (or bootable USB) install of backtrack, on my toshy a200 i cannot get the adapter werking.

    however, when i use BT as a VM on windows (vista & workstation 6) i can successfully attach bt to the VM and bring it up, scan (though slowly), connect etc.

    I have tried disabling bt in windows, then booting into BT, and this doesnt change anything.

    ive compiled this module: 0bits.com/?q=node/6 but i cant get it to load.

    i will keep at it, but not going to lose sleep over it - i have a couple of the linksys usb ones that ive patched antennas onto and they kick ass anyway i just like to be *able* to use the builtin hardware so i dont look like a freak in public places when i am poking around

    hi,

    the module itself compiles ok - but wont load...i think it is for an older version of the bluetooth adapter than i have...

    i have found a few kernel patches that look like they might werk - ill give them a try over the next few days and post back...

    thanks for the help thus far tho doc
