    Other Devices > AAP Server (?) shows question mark


    Hello all,

    Device management is showing a "AAP Server" as a device. Its also showing a question mark.
    I suspect it has something to do with Bluetooth.
    In the properties it says this device is working correctly.

    Is it normal to see this device? Or am i missing a driver?

    Looks like it's an Apple device thing, as explained in this HP notebook forum post: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebo...s/td-p/7734575. And here's a possibly related Reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/airpods/com...ods_has_a_bug/

    Is that listed under "Other" in Device Manager? If so, see this post (thread) - Some entries in "Other Devices" are a mystery--can't figure them out. If so, yes, you are correct in that it's most likely to do with Bluetooth. And yes, that would be normal as that's simply showing a service a BT device is using.

    They can be removed but your BT device may complain/not work, or put them back on next use.

    If it's not under "Other", than I'm not sure what's going on... would need further info from you.

    This is indeed under "Other" devices. If this is debunked as a service being used while some BT device is active, then that is enough explanation for me. :)

    I recently discovered this problem.
    In my case, it is caused by my Beats Solo 3 Wireless Bluetooth headphones.

    I just unchecked the two services in the device Properties > Services tab as described in the YouTube video below (and the HP forum thread that @EdTittel linked to above) and they disappeared from Device Manager. Everything still seems to be working for me. If at some stage I notice something amiss, I can always select them again.

    Yeah, I explained all that here - Some entries in "Other Devices" are a mystery--can't figure them out

    You're even using the same video I used
