    Bluetooth Speakers Connect to Asus All in One


    Asus All in One
    Asus ET 2410 IUTS
    23.6 Desktop

    Can I connect the Grace Digital Matchstick Speaker Dock that I have for my Kindle Fire HD to my Asus desktop?
    I am not familiar with Bluetooth and whether I need connections or software to do this.

    I might need a different kind of Bluetooth Speaker System than the Kindle Fire HD dock.
    I have the Aux cable that connects to MP3 players and cell phones. Do I need a (line-in) cable or something else to make it work. Or is this Matchstick speaker Dock not made for computers?

    Hi there
    Enable BLUE TOOTH on your computer and then simply "Pair" the devices -- no software needed -- the computer will then automatically route the audio out to the blue tooth.

    Blue tooth is simply Blue tooth -- you might be prompted for a PIN number -- if so the pin number will appear on the PAIR screen.

    Once you've enabled the BLUE TOOTH on the computer simply right mouse click for the options.

    (You can also get a USB==>Blue tooth adapter if your computer doesn't have one).

    Tip - keep mobiles away from the Blue tooth receiver as these can sometimes interfere and you'll lose connectivity.

    Cheers

    I bought a Rocketfish Micro Bluetooth 2.1 EDR Adapter which is a USB--Blue tooth adapter.
    When I put it in my system with the CD it showed to be blocked because it might cause system from starting correctly.

    Is there another USB device that would work with a Win 8.1 system like mine?

    Hi there
    Just ignore those warnings - any "Common or Garden" blue tooth adapter should work -- it's OLD technology -- try installing in Compatibility mode and install in Administrator mode.

    I already returned the Rocketfish model adapter and ordered the Kinivo BTD 400 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter for Win 8/7/vista. When it comes I will first see if it is compatible. If not, I'll try your advice for installing in Compatibility mode. How do I install in Administrator mode?

    Success. The Kinivo BTD-400 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter works. I can now pair my desktop, laptop, and Kindle FireHD to the Grace Digital Matchbox speaker dock. Thanks for the help in learning about Bluetooth and finding an adaptor that works with Win 8.1.
