Default unable to transfer media onto pearl 8110

Please Login to Remove!

Since upgrading to desktop rev 6 a few months ago I have not been able to transfer any media onto my pearl 8110. Worked fine in 5, but not anymore.

error message says to turn on mass storage (which it already is).

Reinstalled the last working ver 5 update and it too says I need to turn on mass storage.

Updated phone software to:


I can send camera pictures via bluetooth to my laptop, but not the other way around.

Anybody have any ideas?

Verify that mass storage mode is turned on.
1. Connect your BlackBerry® device to your computer.
2. On your computer, double-click My Computer.
3. In the Devices with Removable Storage section, click Removable Disk.
4. Drag a file from one location to another.
To exit mass storage mode, disconnect your device from your computer.
