I can't seem to connect my BA3001BA Bluetooth keyboard to my mac. It pairs, and then asks for a passcode. I enter the passcode and I get the spinning beachball of death and shortly thereafter, it says the pairing wasn't successful. I managed to connect the device to an Ubuntu Laptop by bypassing the passcode, but it's not possible on a mac.

So in my experimenting I stumbled upon the Bluetooth file transfer app. I was desperate it seems so I tried sending a file to my keyboard. It ended up connecting and entering the passcode worked this time. No clue why, but it worked somehow.

I couldn't find anything like this via google, although a few people seemed to have the same problem, so leaving it here.
