    I tried setting up an older (2-3 years) bluetooth Apple keyboard with my iPad2. Both were "discoverable" but I got an error message telling me my keyboard isn't supported.

    It's an APPLE keyboard!!! What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for any help.

    The iPad doesn't posses a full bluetooth stack, so it's not able to sync with most bluetooth devices. Just some.

    Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to tell which devices are compatible with the iPad? I've searched the Apple site, but have been unsuccessful.


    Thanks again.
