I have tried many things, such as restarting my laptop, taking out the battery of my blackberry and restarting it but nothing seems to work. Whenever I connect via bluetooth it works, however I cannot send files without it being connected via USB. Please help!
Are you perhaps using a hub or something between the USB socket on the laptop and the BlackBerry?
Do you have other USB sockets on the laptop, and have you tried them all?
Have you done troubleshooting on the USB port on the laptop? Any errors on the port? What about deleting the port and then reinstalling?
Do you have another computer you can try?
