    I want to buy a usb bluetooth dongle to use my wiimote on the Dolphin emulator. I was wondering which dongle is best for a WIn 7 64 bit pc.

    My opinion: the cheapest/smallest dongle you can find on Amazon. These days they all perform pretty much the same. They'll all support BT1.2 and 2.0, some will support 2.1, with EDR to increase speed and functional range.
    I've heard about Bluetooth 3.0 in development, but it's not out yet so it doesn't matter.

    I have that cheap $1 dongle from dx, been working fine for the last 2 years
    No need to pay $20 for a name brand one

    Thanks I found the same one on Amazon for the same Price. Another small question. Do you guys think I will need to buy that motion sensor+ for skyward sword on Dolphin? idk if they will bundle it with the game.

    I know it uses it, I would assume it requires it. I mean, the HUD has the shape of a wiimote with motion plus attached

    Windows should automatically install default drivers once it is plugged in.
    If not, either your adapter or usb port is defective.

    Mine didnt work in win7 'plug 'n' play' either . Try the Toshiba bluetooth stack. It works well with cheap BT dongles.
