Default Blackberry can't be Explored in Windows?

Please Login to Remove!

I plugged in my blackberry curve into the computer, and when it prompted for me to automatically install driver software, I clicked it by accident. So it installed driver software, and now it only recognizes my Blackberry as a disk drive, and I cannot access it to explore it. I there a way to reverse this?

And before anyone asks, yes I turned on Mass Storage.

You can access it the media folders through the PC now, look for it in your folder structure as a removable drive.

You were not incorrect installing the drivers. As JSanders said you can explore it from the Disk Drive that appears. Note that on the 9300 a drive will only appear which allows you to explore the media card, not the device's system memory.

Ok, thank you for fixing the confusion. I assumed that because other models allowed you to use mass storage mode the same would be true here.

Double check you have it enabled for mass storage, first. Then.....

Unplug your 9300, open Desktop Manager, plug it back in, at this point, it should show the familiar autoplay select window and then view folder as usual. After this time, I don't think desktop manager needs to be open. Just went thru this after puting BB 6 9700/6.0.0.418 on mine. It's like it needed refreshing (plus - I also installed a new 16GB Card.)
