Default switching phones = no mass storage

Please Login to Remove!

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 4.2.1.109.

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?

Default Am having same problem

I too have a replacement remanufactured 8100 purchased online. Everything else works perfectly fine. The phone can access the MicroSD card, the old version of Blackberry desktop Media Manager (pre-Roxio) could too. But mass storage mode doesn't work, and thus Roxio similarly can't find it. Windows just doesn't find it.
I'm using Windows NT Pro, though it has failed on other machines too (not sure of the OS).

I just reinstalled the latest Blackberry OS for Tmobile, v4.2.1.107 to no avail.

Really sucks to have to take the card out whenever I want to do something. Hopefully someone will have a solution soon.
