I am not sure what tool bluetooth-browse is. Please use the bluez
gnome UI tools. i.e. bluetooth-applet, bluetooth-wizard.

The .ifexists makes sure the module is only loaded if it is
installed. Are you sure you have installed it? You can make sure it is
loaded by typing "list-modules" in pacmd.

Also, as I said, have you correctly connected the device using d-feet
as I mentioned?

You are aware that you need a recent bluez 4.3x release for this, and
a very recent PA 0.9.15 snapshot, right?
