Orchid Innovations Bluetooth USB Dongle Drivers

Orchid Innovation USB Bluetooth Dongle Looking for drivers for the bluetooth USB dongle? There are no specific drivers for this device. The Orchid Innovations USB-BT dongle (at least the one I own) contains chipset from some Integrated System Solution Corp. Quick Google search leads me to the page describing the ISSC BT Dongle. The description page provides that this device will work either with Widcomm drivers or the IVT Bluesoleil driver package.

As far as I know, the Widcomm drivers can only be obtained bundled with the product from the manufacturer and Widcomm (now acquired by Broadcom, as the site says) does not provide any public downloads for this driver. So there is not much to choose from.

If you are looking for IVT Bluesoleil Software, just visit www.esnips.com and perform a Search. Apparently many people have uploaded it there.

There were some problems with Nokia PC Suite but they were finally resolved (read my other post if you face hardware error message with PC Suite BT connectivity).

Update: Thanks Sanjay for updating us. Looks like Orchid Innovations have put up drivers for their products at http://www.orchidinnovations.com/drivers.htm ORC-BT-IVT looks like the driver for the dongle (there are no clear instructions). My Orchid dongle went kaput long ago so I’ve no idea if these work or not. All the best, people.

  1. Hi,

    I just recently bought an Orchid Inovations bluetooth dongle, not the one shown in the picture, its a latest one available out there, its class 2 and supports 500 ft range, was also supplied with a software CD, this dongle doesn’t work with any other sofwate available, not even with the latest drivers available on the broadcom website, it keeps prompting for license, it workd only if you install it using the bundled CD, the problem is, this dongle doesn’t work with my Samsung WEP150 bluetooth handsfree, everything else works fine with this dongle, I can connect to internet using GPRS, can transfer files between mobile/pc, I can pair the Samsung handsfree and the dongle, it gets paired fine(I can confirm that by looking at the flashing lights on the handsfree) and also the beep confirms the pairing, but can’t hear anything out of it, and if I go to control panel and test the hardware for sound output/input id doesn’t work, it shows as bluetooth audio device is there, but it cannot use that..

    Is anyone else having the same problem??? I am thinking of getting this replaced if it doesn’t work, since its the only one available with this high operating range, I want to try everything I can before I think of getting this replaced, the Bluesoleil doesn’t work with this dongle, it keeps prompting for an hardware…

    The same handsfree works fine with another bluetooth dongle which gets detected by the Bluesoleil software….Any suggestion??/
