Every time I try to transfer files in my Smartphone that are greater than 800KB to my Windows 8 desktop using Bluetooth the file transfer get stopped. I use a Bluetooth dongle to connect my PC and the phone and I never faced this problem with my old desktop which has Windows XP installed. It is more like Windows 8 machine terminated the file transfer. Does anybody know a fix for this?

Hi Albert,

The cause of the problem would be the Bluetooth driver compatibility of your Windows 8. To resolve the issue, you need to uninstall and reinstall the Bluetooth driver in compatibility mode. First, you need to go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest Bluetooth driver and install in on the system. Once done, you will be able to use and transfer files from Bluetooth to a computer running Windows 8 Operating System. For more detailed information, kindly click the link below.
