I am building a self-balancing robot and for some reason I use a bluetooth dongle (from SWEEX) in order to do some calculations. Now everything works fine as long I work with a MacBook, but unfortunately I have to work with an other computer that uses Windows 8.1.
Apparently, the problem is that I can't maintain a connection. Every time I build up a connection in the bluetooth settings it gets connected and after a few seconds the computer says the dongle is paired. If I try to get access with phyton or processing, no data is transferred. (on MacBook no problem - therefore I am sure it's not a mistake of the algorithm)
What I tried until now: - everything what I found in forums :D - changing drivers - connect and disconnect in various patterns - set up the serial ports
Is there anybody who made similar experiences using windows 8.1 and a bluetooth device? Is it possible that it's an driver problem? Or does windows 8.1 block a connection?
If anyone has an idea, I would be very thankful
