Mass storage mode is on and I have it set to prompt so it SHOULD be working but its not!

Can anyone tell me what the problem could be?

Thank you!
This happened to me a few times in the past. Connect the BB, go to Device Manager and uninstall the Blackberry Smartphone from the Universal Serial Bus Controllers section. Unplug the BB, wait a sec, then plug the BB back in and it should install it as new. Then try to see if it connects. The only other thing that used to give me issues with the PC not "seeing" the BB was my firewall which I had to disable when connecting.
