    IOError: No Bluetooth adapter detected

    Dear all
    I test the first python program to discover devices by bluetooth.
    The code is

    from bluetooth import *
    target_name = "My Phone"
    target_address = None
    nearby_devices = discover_devices( )
    for address in nearby_devices :
    if target_name == lookup_name( address ) :
    target_address = address
    break
    if target_address is not None :
    print "found target bluetooth device with address" , target_address
    else :
    print "could not find target bluetooth device nearby"


    when I run the program I face this error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<pyshell#7>", line 1, in <module>
    nearby_devices = discover_devices( )
    File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\bluetooth\msbt.py", line 7, in discover_devices
    return bt.discover_devices (flush_cache, lookup_names)
    IOError: No Bluetooth adapter detected


    I need your help as soon as possible.
    thanks

    Re: IOError: No Bluetooth adapter detected

    Hello again

    I didn't try to switch on off the bluetooth adapter. and the program didn't ask me to do so..

    Are there any other possible reasons?

    hi bluetooth2008
    plz check that the bluetooth adapter is switched on and bluetooth in your phone is also switched on.
    then try your code.
