Windows XP MCE 2002 SP3

Dell Wireless 355 Module with Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR Technology. WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software 5.1.0.3400

Attempting to pair official sony ps3 wireless headset to the laptop.  PC is able to discover headset  and security code of "0000" is entered but pairing process will not complete.

Error Message:  Error in pairing with the device: "Wireless Headset". Make sure that device is connectable and try again.

The headset works perfectly with both my ps3 and my cell phone, therefore I know it is 'connectable'.  Any ideas?

Thanks and Merry X-Mas :)
