When I try to install this, I get as far as a screen inviting me to agree to uninstall my Bluetooth stack, but there is nothing to reasssure me that after doing so the installer will proceed to install the new stack. Has anyone tried this upgrade yet and is able to confirm that after the 'uninstall' of the old there is an 'install' of the new?
Also it still doesn't seem to support A2DP....!

It first uninstalls. Then you reboot. Then you run it again ( if I remember right, it didn't run by itself after reboot ) and there it installs.
It does install, and it does work - sort of... I can't very well confirm if it works well or not, since the only thing BT ever done on my M4 is to "see" my T630. It however doesn't pair with it, and neither does it sync with it.
I just assume that's the way BT is on PC's, and sync with my Mac :P
Along the lines of the new BT Stack, I've been strongly considering acquiring a BT headset for Skype and voice-recognition.
But, I've read alot about problems getting a BT headset to work well with M200's and the Toshiba BT Stack.
Any advice as to quality headsets which work as advertised w/o any "stack hacking" ?

I installed this and it works perfectly. Although i wanted to use the setpoint software option but is still does not work.

I cannot get setpoint to work with this version either.....

There is a new version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack v4.00.23 posted at the same site gioro mentions above...the installer works the same...de-install first (I didn't reboot) then reinstall. v4 is a big improvement over v3.x - UI is much better. The download site also has a ton of other good info about how to get the PAN functionality working, DUN, GPS etc. etc.
I've got mouse (UID), phone (DUN, OBEX, Serial), palm lifedrive (Serial, OBEX), Headset all working no problem. From what I've read (and I've read a lot of forums about this over the past month :-) ) the Toshiba stack is very very solid and very very complete...compared to others...which isn't too surprising since Toshiba are one of the leading lights in the Bluetooth "consortium".
The new version 4.0 stack evens supports Bluetooth cameras...and I've not even seen those advertised anywhere yet as well as Scatter nets (which I'm going to be trying soon with my new headphones...see below)
I also bought a Anycom BSH-100 Bluetooth stereo headset / headphones. Still not sure I really like these yet...and I too had problems because of Toshiba's insistance on following the optional parts of the BT standard regarding Digital Rights Management (known as SCMS-T in BT). However even with the 4.0 BT stack you can turn this off...see http://www.mtekk.com.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7862&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=20&sid=cd3b5c51f4d49c9e6d0e293225d942e0 for instructions.
I suspect these ones (which I functioally identical to the Anycom ones) are better value and you get the neat dongle with them for non-AD2P devices (like my LifeDrive) OBH-0110 by www.SONORIX.com. If anyone buys these pls post a review.
Also...I bought my M4 without the internal BT module (long story)...see this thread for details of my story to add that capability http://www.mtekk.com.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7862&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=20&sid=cd3b5c51f4d49c9e6d0e293225d942e0

If you read the link at http://aps.toshiba-tro.de/bluetooth/pages/driverinfo.php?txt=bltstack-40023-notebook it describes all the profiles...including A2DP...which Toshiba stack supports.

Does anyone know how to get this version working with logitech setpoint to recognize the mx900 mouse from logitech? I would like to reprogram the buttons, but it does not work.

It would appear that the new BT stack does not support A2DP - Toshiba say "Only Bluetooth stero headset with Content Protection Standard SCMS feature are supported."

Has someone found a way to get an A2DP headset running on the Tosh stack? Is there any way to replace the Tosh stack with the Widcomm one?

I bought Toshiba's bluetooth Stereo headset and It works perfectly with my M4

qdewolf, could you please post the specs and/or a link to this headset? Can you listen to audio streams in good quality with this headset?

I also got another bluetooth headset and it does not support the protection which the person above says they got to work but the link does not have the fix anymore. is there somewhere else i can see the fix?
the toshiba headset is here

i dont know, i wasnt very impressed with the toshiba bluetooth stack compared to the dell one. I had BT on my old dell laptop and it was extremely intuitive and a lot easier to use. Toshiba's seems to do what i need it to though. I know i cant get at my file folders on my cellphone through Toshibas stack though :-/
01-27-2006, 08:57 AM
The fix should be somewhere around here now:

All the links are dead now. Anyone know how to get arround the SCMS-T problem?

Great news everyone!
Toshiba's new Vista-compatable Stack (ver. 5.10.01) now allows the SCMS protection to be turned off.
I can finally enjoy full Bluetooth Stereo on my Blueant headphones!
Details of recent upgrade changes here (although it relates to ver 5.10.06 which I've just noticed is available and doesn't actually mention the SCMS issue)
start download from here. . .
