    My Touchpad will not detect an old iPAQ folding keyboard as a keyboard ("No devices found.") But, if held very close, will detect it as "other." After typing in the passcode "0000" and hitting "Next" it seems to accept it as a device (other passcodes note "pairing failed"). But as an "other" device, it won't work as a keyboard.

    Any ideas on how to make the Touchpad accept the keyboard as a keyboard? Or something I need to do at the keyboard end? I have Preware, so if a patch or homebrew will help, that's an acceptable option.

    Type "0000" and the Enter key on the iPaq keyboard. I had to do this with my Freedom Keyboard2 in order to pair to the TP. Good luck.

    Thanks for passing this along, but I've done this.

    The real issue seems to be not the pairing, but the fact the Touchpad does not detect the keyboard as a keyboard. It detects it as "other" device. It shows up under other devices as BT Folding Keyboard, but not as a keyboard. So I can't type on it!

    Very strange. Bluetooth is Bluetooth. Why is this keyboard not a keyboard?

    Yeah, I'm getting the same results. I don't have any other Bluetooth devices, so I'm wondering if there's any way to hack in and redirect any "other" devices to the Bluetooth keyboard handler.

    (should a mod merge the threads?)
