I have the following:
BT300 Bluetooth Dongle, set to Low security
MacBook with Snow Leopard, OS X 10.6
I am trying to use the dongle to print.
I go to the "Setup bluetooth device" assistant.
The dongle shows up as a bluetooth device, HP 8000 Photosmart
I click Setup, the Mac recognises the device and moves to another screen.
The Mac says I should enter "0000" into the dongle to pair it, and also says it is finding additional capabilities of the device.
At that point the Setup Assistant crashes.
The HP8000 exists in the Bluetooth devices list, but is NOT paired, so won't allow printing.

did you ever get a response elsewhere? having the same issue with a c5550. no crash though, and it even shows up in the printer queue, but always say disconnected. tried to edit serial port options. says it's connected for a moment. try to print. still disconnected. green light goes off.

you are right. I'm using the HP BT300 bluetooth dongle with a photosmart 335 and connected it to my Macbook (2010 model) using Snow Leopard 10.6.4.
Had initially set up the printer as USB, but decided I wanted to be able to print using bluetooth.
1. removed the printer from the printer list
2. from the System Preferences > Bluetooth menu, removed and rediscovered the device (bluetooth dongle and printer turned on first)
3. from the System Preferences > Print & Fax menu, readded the printer (this time as a Bluetooth device)
Works flawlessly now. Thanks for the suggestion mate, I'm v happy...
