Desktop Manager will not recognise your crippled Blackberry but go into the Applications Loader and ask it to find device. It will say no device found and suggest COMS 1. Click on that suggestion and it will find your Blackberry and display USB and your PIN number. You can then proceed with the load.
I have the above mentioned screen with number 507 beneath. The Application Loader cae up with COM3 I proceeded to click on "Detect communication port" and then "Next".

But, I keep on getting a message "Unable to connect to the device"

Anyone, have any suggestions? It all went wrong during the OS upgrade.... _sigh_
