maverick, are you still dealing with this, or did you solve it?
Desktop Manager 8? You sure?
If you are going to use media sync in Desktop Manager, do not enable mass storage mode.
Use mass storage mode when you want to use the BlackBerry media card as a drive, and copy/move files using Explorer, or whatever.
On contacts, odds are that you've turned on a filter. Open the address book app and look. Make sure no filters are checked. If that's not it and if somehow you wiped out your address book, you'll need to re-sync or do a selective restore from backup.
