Default Can't get past the Initial Plug

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks,
New to the site and new to Blackberry so go gentle with me.
I received my new Pearl 8110 on T-Mobile last week and after loading the Desktop Manager software plugged my device in to start to sync, but keep recieving this message

Initial Plugin: verifying applications
Checking the status of the applications on the device. This is only required on the first connection of the device to a new desktop installation.


I have downloaded software from the Blackberry site, used the enclosed disc, used both my laptop and desk top and only yesterday T-Mobile replaced the handset but all to no avail, it still hangs.

Any advice would be gratefully welcome.

Download and install version 4.2, Service Pack 2, and try again. I would recommend the version withOUT Roxio Media Manager.

Oh yes, certainly. Use this method withOUT Roxio.
How do I add media files to my microSD card? - BlackBerryFAQ

Many of us do this ^^, with the Mass Storage enabled, much cleaner and simpler. Your Media Card on the BB simply acts as and appears as a removable drive on your PC when the BB is plugged in to the PC USB cable.

Are you using a USB hub? Make sure the USB cord is plugged DIRECT to the PC.
