Default Mass Storage not working

Please Login to Remove!

I need help, Mass Storage function NOT WORKING!!

I have tried everything already posted on this entire forum.

- Media card ON
- Mass Storage Mode Support ON
- Auto Enable Mass Storage YES
saved and then Battery Pull

Formated Card and then a Battery Pull

I have upgraded Device OS (4.2.1.96 currently )
I have upgraded DM 4.2(SP2)to 4.3 (currently 4.3)

No matter what I have tried, My BB Pearl will not show up as a drive letter on my computer. It does not show up under Disk Managment. With My girlfriends BB Pearl I just plug it in, and there is the drive.

I have verified all setting are exact on Both BB Pearls. I am able to use a SD Adapter and the SD card shows up as a drive letter.

I now beleive that the mass storage function on my Pearl does not work.

Any Ideas???

Yes, check to ensure that you don't have any other drives mapped. XP likes to assign the storage device to the lowest letter drive and if it doesn't get it then it will not place nice with the storage.

Also if you go in through my computer do you see it seperately from the phone device? If so just drag things there.

Does your girlfriend's Pearl have the same OS as you?

Could be that the microSC card isn't connected in the pearl. It's tricky to lock the mechanism, that's for sure. When you use Options/Advanced Options/Card do you see it and the available memory?

Default Thanks for the replys

Its is not a drive letter issue. It does not show up under the disk managment tool. Girl Friend's BB does.

Both BB's have the same OS v4.2.1.96. Mine seems to be an older T-Mobile model from Ebay. I have upgraded my OS to match hers. Her's is a newer At&T model from Ebay. Both on Rogers.

It is not a SD card installation problem. My BB can read and write data to the SD card fine. I even tried swapping SD cards back and forth, with same results. Hers works great, mine does nothing.

Any others Ideas? or can I just give up and say its broken. Darn Ebay!!!
