For the dm to sync to the bt, you need to use windows bt stack drivers. I use a 3 yr old Kensington bt dongle and cant sync using dm but i just put files into bt exchange folder that was created from new wincomm drivers that are compatible w/ dongle. Works great for me. Does not sync the way you are used to w/ connect and sync using dm. I don't even open dm when i send using bt. Connect comp. and bb then send via exchange folder to and fro.

I could not locate a Belkin so I bought a Kensington. I went with the Micro Adapter, but others will probably work. I de-installed Desktop Manager, then loaded and setup the USB Bluetooth adapter, then loaded Desktop Manager. My Outlook now syncs, but my Media Manager is grayed out. I figure that out later.
Thanks everyone for the help.
I picked up a Targus adaptor and worked my way through to a successful setup.
When you connect the usb adaptor it needs drivers. Instead of popping in the driver cd and installing them (they are windcom) -- drop into device manager and specify the driver location, I used the included driver cd -- which has a btw J3 Signed directory. After this installed it automatically setup Microsoft's bluetooth.
Paired the phone and Desktop Manager 4.7 worked fine.
