I'll try to describe my problems as simply as possible.
I am using this bluetooth adapter
to make my computer bluetooth enabled -- or Bluetoothable.
I followed the following tutorial on YouTube because it actually seemed pretty damn simple.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8Yb2faaBTg&feature=related
In my first attempt to get the Wiimote and PC connected, I was asked for a passkey, which didn't happen in the YouTube tutorial. After some searching on the Wiimote Project forums
, it turns out the very drivers that came with the adapter is what prevents the Wiimote to PC connection, so I had to uninstall the drivers and get Windows-styled drivers. I followed the instructions from here
, and I did have to use the hack.
More searching on that forum led me to this link
describing how to connect the Wii Remote to a PC. Even though this is shown in the YouTube tutorial, I figured it's good to make sure you have another source confirming the method.
The problem is after step 7 in that last link. I held on to 1 and 2 until my thumb wanted to turn numb and I didn't see any drivers install. A few seconds after letting go, the lights stop flashing and the connection is lost. I even tried the red sync button in the battery compartment and nothing changed. The Wii Remote just simply doesn't want to stay connected. While the lights are flashing, the computer does see the remote. But after it says "Setup is complete" and I click Finish and then OK, and then re-enter "Bluetooth Devices" from the control panel, it doesn't see the remote anymore (even if it stops and I reactive it by pressing 1 and 2).
I must be missing something simple in this, but I just can't see it probably because of how long I've been trying to get this to work. All I'm wanting to do is to try out the Wiimote Whiteboard with a LED penlight just like how Johnny Lee does it, and to have my Classic Controller (and hopefully therefore my Wii Fighting Stick as well) work for some games. In case it matters, the Wii Remote I've been trying to use has never been connected to my Wii.
HELP! PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
