I'm having trouble with my bluetooth adapter on my hackintosh. I recently found a work bluetooth module from a MacBook Pro. It uses USB but at 3.3v

I don't know how to deal with a USB inside a computer. For getting a 5V down to 3.3V, I'd probably consider a resistor given low power draw. But in a computer... ehhhh.

Ah. I'm going to give it a shot.

btw since I just now found about NNFT.net I'm getting my $30 back on tfnn2.com

I just hope it will install OK with the existing backplate as I don't want to have to take the machine apart. I don't see why it wouldn't.
