No A2DP For Latitude E6410

redmaxx 21,218 1,587 March 19, 2012 at 01:59 PM
I've got a Latitude E6410 with a Dell Wireless 375 Bluetooth module and can't get it to do A2DP with a Sony Bluetooth headset. It just recognizes the hands free profile. I understand this is a deficiency in the Dell Bluetooth stack, not including the A2DP profile and the standard Microsoft one doesn't either. I've hunted all over Dell Support and couldn't find a package that will work. Neither will the standard WIDCOMM driver directly from Broadcom (complains it's not compatible).

What can I do to get this to work? I've heard of people swapping out their driver for a Toshiba or ASUS one, but I don't see a compatible one for the Wireless 375 module.

The headset works fine with A2DP on my Macbook Pro.

Ah ha! The HP Envy 14 Bluetooth driver worked like magic.

Steve Gibson on password policies [grc.com]: I mean, I don't get this change it every eight weeks. ... It's not as if passwords are traveling by camel after they've been stolen, going to the bad guys, and so there's, like, some weird eight-week window, like, oh, we're going to change your password so that the stale password no longer works. ... And all this does is make IT people despised because users, who are not dumb, they think, why am I - why do I have to do this? What problem is this solving?

I wish Microsoft at this stage would have made a better built in driver for bluetooth

That's really resourceful. It would not have occurred to me to try BT drivers from a different OEM.
It's a shame Bluetooth isn't easier to configure and use, especially A2DP. That should be plug and play.

It doesn't work for too many devices, but so many Bluetooth chipsets are made by Broadcom, it's worth a shot. Really sucks that there's so much fragmentation even with Broadcom chipsets that it's so hit or miss.
