Default Player 4, Win7, Bluetooth?

I have recently acquired a Samsung Galaxy Player 4. It works great and I absolutely love it. Today I thought I would try to connect to my media machine via bluetooth to see how it worked, what I could do, etc, etc.

Unfortunately I'm not having any luck. My media machine is running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I know it's bluetooth works as I have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard working just fine.

I can go into the galaxy and turn on bluetooth and make it discoverable. From windows I can tell it to add a bluetooth device. It will see my droid but when I try to add it, it'll just chug for a while before the pairing eventually fails, saying that there is an authentication error, perhaps because of an incorrect pairing code. Nowhere on the droid do I see anywhere to set or retrieve the pairing code, nor does windows ever prompt for the code.

I thought I would try going the other way. I made the PC discoverable and sure enough it shows up from the droid. When I try to connect I get a very similar error regarding the pairing codes. I can't see anywhere in windows where it displays the code, nor does the droid ask for me to enter it.

Any help is appreciated!

I cant really offer a solution but I have the same problem with win 7, my pc is dual boot win xp and win xp will connect fine so I think win 7 with blue soleis bluetooth drivers wont connect for some reason maybe if I pay for the up dated drivers but it will probably be cheaper to buy a new adapter. so I mabe if you have the same (blue soeis drivers) you have the same problem
