I put a bluetooth adapter (Gigabyte GN-BTP01) on my Epson CX3200 and BT
receiver is the one with MS Bluetooth optical desktop (XP SP2 installed).

"GIGABYTE" is recognized when I "add a new bluetooth device" but no service
is available (despite HCRP is supported by my device).

What could be the proper way to install this device with my configuration

Thank you.

Trying to do a similar thing myself. I also have the CX3200 and am
looking to buy the right Bluetooth printer adapter. I've noticed that
almost all of them are incompatible with "All-In-One" printers like the
CX3200.

I thought they meant that not all features of the printer would be
available rather than not working altogether, but unfortunately from
what you are saying, this seems to be the case.
Hope someone comes up with a solution or workaround soon.

I believe the Epson CX3200 is a multifunction device, thus it works over
1284.4 bus so it probably won't work with a Bluetooth adapter. You should
check with Gigabyte and see if they support 1284.4 devices over their
adapter. I checked their supported devices and the Epson CX3200 isn't
listed:

Here's how Gigabyte suggests installing this device:

Have you tried installing the device through the Add Printer Wizard?

Try this:
1) Open the Bluetooth Control Panel. Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
2) Select the "GIGABYTE" device and hit the Remove button
3) Open the Printers and Faxes Folder. Start>Printers and Faxes>Add a
Printer
4) Select Bluetooth Printer
5) Device should auto detect and prompt you to install the drivers.

Reply back and let me know what your results are. In the meantime I'll try
to get this device and reproduce the situation for you.

I tried through the add printer wizard to add a "bluetooth printer"
("Gigabyte" was no more mentioned among bluetooth devices despite detected
previously). The blue square light on device blinked but no printer was
detected.

I tried again through bluetooth device panel : device detected, no code
number required, it installs slowly but then no service is available.

Example shown on Gigabyte site seems to uses Widcomm software sold with USB
dongles and BT compact flash cards by Billionton and other manufacturers.

MS BT Mouse and keyboard detection is sometime difficult too : keyboard get
lost and needs a new code on a hot reboot after wake up frome state 1 that
failed to light up screen...Mouse link seems stronger : I never lost it
....Since XP2, services on Mouse and Keyboard are easier to install : the
blank square appears immediately to chose HID profile.

I can use my bluetooth phone now with my MS receiver (Nokia 6310i) since
XP2. Maybe someday with "XP3" bluetooth printing will be possible
easily...or has bluetooth been killed by wifi ??

Thank you for your efforts.

Michel

Try going into the Bluetooth Control Panel, selecting the GIGABYTE device
from the "Devices" Tab. Hit Properties and then go to the "Services" Tab.
You should be able to select> Printing (HCRP) checkbox and hit apply. If you
don't see a Printing (HCRP) service then the gigabyte adapter probably
doesn't work with this device.

I'm still working on getting your device to reproduce the situation. It may
take a week or two since they are mainly items sold in the UK.
