Default A2DP with Dell Mini 9 - 03-22-2009, 10:40 AM

Hi, I was wondering if the Windows XP on the mini 9 nativly supports A2DP because I want to hook up a pair of Nokia wireless speakers with it.

Not natively in Windows XP, no. Some Bluetooth headsets/dongles come with updated drivers which support A2DP.

Is there a way to get it to work on the mini with XP?

Well when I had XP I found that the standard bluetooth stack/drivers that came with it worked, but if not, look for a WIDCOMM or Broadcom bluetooth stack, which are unfortunately hard to find at the moment, or if you're prepared to pay try using BlueSoleil. I think that the WIDCOMM driver can be found here ... _Win32.rar

I haven't yet tried this as my internet keeps cutting out half way through the download.

my HP Mini uses the WIDCOMM bluetooth drivers. A2DP works like a charm with this driver.

widcomm drivers work perfectly with the dell stock bluetooth module; I have a nokia headset working (including the mic)

For dongles you may need bluesoleil, but I know the windows stock drivers and especially the slimmed down "hacked" drivers do not support audio or much other than data transfer
