Congratulations, the idea works. I have a board like that and according to your tutorial, I made the connections and it really worked. The Drive is from MS-HP and worked perfectly matching my smartphone. I did transfer files from PC to Android without problems.

Hey it works as a transmitter too right? I've been looking for a Bluetooth transmitter everywhere and the ones I found were quite expensive. If this thing acts like a transmitter (it should because laptop bt modules are transceivers) it'll be just perfect!

Almost every laptop module I have encountered with USB capabilities runs on 3.3v, I assume this is due to Data +/- running at 3.3v, I forget why external USB devices are 5v. Anyways, make sure to verify voltage and convert with a regulator (like ams1117 3.3) if required so you don't blow the module.

Question 2 years ago on Step 2

You say 4 wires...but I see 5 in your picture. I get the concept and I want to do this but I just wanted to clarify that. Also my original laptop (hp) cable has all wires being the same color and is 7 wires. I've found pinouts showing them all but would I need the other wires at all?
