bluetooth driver, windows 7, x64, mini usb bluetooth dongle

I bought a bluetooth dongle from ebay (those really cheap ones). It doesn't come with software/drivers. I plugged it in my windows vista laptop and it worked smoothly. When I plug it in my windows 7 x64 laptop, it says "Unknown device," "USB device not recognized."  Where can I find the right drivers for this bluetooth dongle?

PROBLEM: I bought a Digitech Bluetooth USB 'dongle' XC-4956 from Jaycar consumer electronics (a store like Sick Smith). I installed it on an ACER Aspire 5380TG 64 bit running Win7, since that laptop didn't have inbuilt BT hardware. Then I tried to connect a very 'sexy' Microsoft 'Wedge' keyboard. The install software (basically BT stack and hw driver) that is supplied with the dongle failed to recognise the kb. SOLUTION: I went to the Toshiba site, which automatically handed me on to Microsoft.com, which then seemed to sense that I had Win7-64bit, and installed a generic stack and driver, and VOILA! hubristic happiness.

Hi,
Go to www.bluesoleil.com and download their proggie:
http://www.bluesoleil.com/download/Detail.aspx?TID=26
It is a fully functional demo.
See if it works for you (it did for me).
If it does, then you'll have to shell out (like me) 20 euros.
It works with most of the "abandoned", "old" bluetooth USB devices.
Best of luck.
Carlos
