Wouldn't the driver be for the bluetooth chipset in your PC rather than anything that happens to be over the other side of that wireless bluetooth connection? Drivers almost always talk to stuff physically connected to your PC in my experience.

When you pair a bluetooth thing, Windows creates a "device" specifically for it (mainly named as the Pandora bluetooth name), with a related driver, and in case of the Pandora, it uses a generic Microsoft bluetooth driver.

I tried to force other generic drivers, but Windows just crushed everytime... so I don't have any clue on how I can proceed... I know nothing about creating them...

I suppose it's some kind of rule Microsoft put in for security reasons... but maybe it was forced a little too much...

Hi - because I have a keyboard and touchscreen issue with my GPD Pocket 1 I thought about using this software for input. I basically only use the GPD as mediaplayer so the pandora is only needed as a bluetooth remote control.
I can pair my Pandora with the standard bluetooth utility but it always fails to connect via Master Control.
Using Ubuntu on my GPD and it sees the pandora and appears as type 'computer' - I can send files from the pandora to my GPD so pairing works.

In master control gui I never managed to connect to the GPD.
In mastercontrol log file:
Bluetooth trying to connect to GPD address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Failed to connect to interrupt psm 19! (connection refused)

Anyone had success with this on a GPD Pocket or any other Linux PC? Would love to get it to work (as keyboard/mouse gamepad - any option will do)

[Edit] Works! I thought MC was replacing the default bluetooth app, but you need to connect via the default app and then use MC to connect. Very useful app. Might have to change things a bit on the GPD side with some easy and fast shortcuts.
