Drivers aren't being installed because the broadcom bluetooth software downloader does not detect this adapter at all, and i've been reading different threads about this not working at all.
Is this even fixable, or is this product useless?
I've uninstalled the drivers, ran the driver software, plugged in my adapter when it said that it couldn't find one, windows installs drivers as a usb device, and the program doesn't recognize that its plugged in.

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!
The latest Broadcom drivers and software have been tested and verified to work for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 by our engineering team. The links on the RF-MRBTAD and RF-BCDM4 pages will take you to these most updated drivers and software here. The "SetupBtwDownloadSE.exe" file contains the drivers and Bluetooth software needed for all of the supported operating systems.
If your RF-MRBTAD or RF-BCDM4 isn't working after these steps or fails during one of the steps, there is likely a software or hardware conflict preventing it from working. A possible remedy for these conflicts would be to reinstall your operating system and then reinstall the Bluetooth adapter. Keep in mind that you will want to back up all of your files before reinstalling the operating system. If you are not comfortable reinstalling the operating system yourself you could seek the assitance of Geek Squad or another computer repair vendor through a paid service. This would be the final troubleshooting step you could attempt and if the adapter still will not work I would recommend returning with your Bluetooth adapter and a copy of your receipt to your place of purchase in order to pursue the possibility of warranty repair or replacement.

I finally figured this out too. I don't want to type the whole thing out, see if this helps. /t5/Computer-Accessories/FIXED-RF-MRBTAD-Mini-Bluetooth-Dongle-Frustrations-and-a-Fix/m-p/16191
