How do I set up Windows to work with a Plantronics Bluetooth headset?
You may need to follow this procedure every time Windows installs device drivers for the Voyager USB adapter. It will install device drivers every time you plug the USB adapter into a USB port you have not used before. For this reason, Plantronics advises using the same USB port as much as possible whenever you need to re-plug the Bluetooth USB adapter.
Windows treats the Voyager USB adapter as standalone sound device similar to your computer's built-in sound card. You may have several more sound devices installed on your PC, such as a Webcam microphone or other USB audio adapters.
To Set Up the BUA-100 Adapter
Windows 2000 / XP
NOTE: You may only want to use Voyager for VoIP / phone calls, and continue using your standard loudspeakers for music and everything else. In this case, plug in the USB adapter to your preferred USB port and allow Windows to install drivers if you haven't already done so. As per the instructions above please then assign the sound device relevant for your computer speakers to be the defaults for at least sound play back. Now, the Voyager headset will not be used for audio unless your softphone application is specifically set up to use it. Many softphone applications, including Skype have settings to select a specific audio device for VoIP calls. Consult your softphone instructions to find out how to change the audio device it uses for microphone / line in and speakers / line out. The correct choice for the Plantronics Bluetooth USB adapter is "Plantronics BT Adapter".

NOTE: If you wish to use your headset for answering calls at just the touch of the call control button on the headset, your softphone must be compatible with the Plantronics PersonoCall software. Please see the links below for more information.
