View Full Version : In need of help synching... drivers won't load.

To all,

This is my very first post and my first Blackberry. I recently purchsed one from a friend (8800 for AT&T) and he did not have the cd that came with it. Thinking nothing of it, I thought that I would simply have to download the software from the RIM website to install everything I need. I downloaded one of the managing software, but then when I hooked up my Blackberry my computer will not recognize the Blackberry. I was told that this is because my computer does not have the correct drivers and would need to download them.

Here's where I need help. I don't know what to get or where to get them from. I did not get a data plan or modify my already existing plan with AT&T so I hope that that isn't something affecting my Blackberry.


Thank you in advance for any and all assistance that you can offer me.

Welcome to the forums.

You need to download Desktop Manager.

BlackBerry Desktop Manager Downloads - BlackBerryFAQ (http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/BlackBerry_Desktop_Manager_Downloads)

I use version 4.5 without the Roxio media manager.
