Yes, I had no problem using it connect a PS3 controller to my PC. You will need a third party controller driver like MotioninJoy to configure the connection. Hope this answered your question!

if I use this with a mac pro can I use the bluetooth mouse/trackpad/keyboard to wake the computer? Aug 13, 2013
Dear Customer, Thank you for your question regarding the BTD-300 Bluetooth adapter. The BTD-300 and other Bluetooth adapters cannot be used to wake a Mac OS X computer as the USB power is turned off while in sleep mode. The option will be greyed out in the Bluetooth settings. It is not possible without a built-in adapter. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.

Will the Kinivo BTD-300 USB Bluetooth Adapter enable my HP Pavilion dv6-2173cl laptop computer to connect with my PalmOne Tungsten E2 PDA? Sep 10, 2013
Yes it should work. This adapter is compatible with older bluetooth technology. You would need to install software on the laptop to communicate with your bluetooth enabled PDA. There is a step-by-step tutorial at this address: http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/na/tungsten/e2/unlocked/solutions/article/13950_en.html.
I have an e machine desktop computer. W3650. I want to be able to listen to the music I have on my computer but from another room, on a set of small wireless speakers I bought. Can I just get this, plug it into my desktop and be all set? Nov 22, 2013
I will assume that the wireless speakers you have are Bluetooth, although you didn't specify. There are other types of wireless speakers. And I will assume that your computer is running Windows XP or later, since the model of the computer itself means nothing in this case... it's the operating system that is important. In a nutshell, the minimum requirements are as follows: Windows XP or later USB 1.1 or 2.0 Bluetooth device using Bluetooth 2.0, 2.1, 3.0 or 3.0+HS Class 2 (will not support Bluetooth 4.0 - use item No. BTD-400 instead) The effective range is 30ft. but that is reduced by any obstacles, such as walls, furniture, appliances, etc. So as you can see, the answer to your question depends on a number of things. However, if your computer and speakers meet the minimum requirements, and as long as the computer and speakers are only one room - maybe two rooms - apart, you should be just fine. I can have my computer in my bedroom upstairs playing my music, and use my Bluetooth headphones one floor down and two rooms away and it works just fine. If I stray any farther away than that, the signal breaks up and eventually my headphones give up and disconnect. Depending on how far away your speakers are from the computer, you can play with the placement of the speakers in the room to get a better signal.
Does this create a com port to which I can assign a terminal program such as hyperterminal for serial communications? Mar 14, 2015
Dear Customer, Thank you for your question regarding our BTD-300 Bluetooth 3.0 USB adapter.

Yes you can. Just install this device and connect it to your speakers. To connect to them, go to 'devices and printers' and then 'add a device' (This is for Windows) and select the device you want to connect to. Then start playing some music! You may have to change your sound settings if your computer already has other speakers it uses.
Will usb bluetooth adapter work in a car stereo? Feb 9, 2013
I'm almost positive it won't because you have to install the software on your computer to use the USB Bluetooth. It would be impossible to install the software in your car sterio. So I would say don't get this if you are trying to do that. But they do sell Bluetooth adapters specifically for car sterios. Search on google for a Bluetooth adapter for YOUR sterio and you should have a wide selection of different adapters.
