My original Pearl (which I got from AT&T) worked just fine as a mass storage device. Soon as I plugged it in it showed up in windows explorer so I can manage my media. After it broke I purchased an unlocked T-Mobile Pearl from eBay. The phone works perfectly except for one thing, the phone wont detect as a mass storage device when plugged in. The new phone is running the same OS as my first, OS 188.8.131.52.
Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the OS and Desktop Manager from my computer as well as formatting the memory card. Ive also tried unstalling the phones drivers from the computer. Nothing workes. And seeing as I never used Roxio to manage my stuff I dont know how long this has been going on but none of my media shows up there either.
Running Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate (laptop). The problem exists on both machines. Am I doomed to have to take my memory out and use a card reader whenever I want to manage my media?
