Hi,
i bought "Rocketfish RF-MRBTAD" since it was recommended by many, and was listed in the Bluetooth list in tonymacx86 wiki.
It is supposed to be working out of the box, but when i connect it to my hackintosh, i go to System Preferences, and i don't find the Bluetooth panel! When i got to Mouse to try to connect my Magic Mouse, it shows some settings even though no mouse is connected.

When i go to System Information, i find nothing under Bluetooth, but i find this info under USB "attached image"

And the info:
Code:
BCM2046B1:

  Product ID:	0x4500
  Vendor ID:	0x0a5c  (Broadcom Corp.)
  Version:	1.00
  Speed:	Up to 12 Mb/sec
  Manufacturer:	Broadcom
  Location ID:	0x7d200000 / 2
  Current Available (mA):	500
  Current Required (mA):	94

Can anyone please help me to get my Magic Mouse working?

Re: My bluetooth dongle is not working?

OK, I solved the problem with the weirdest way possible!
I went to Windows 7, connected my bluetooth, set it up (using included CD drivers-or downloaded from website), then after it was finished and recognized, i turned my Magic Mouse on, and chose (add bluetooth device) from the bluetooth menu, then it was paired.
I went back to Mac OS X, and! it was working!
