I have a 8110 running 184.108.40.206. My home pc runs xp, and has DM version 4.3 without the media manager.
I've looked through the forum and noticed that several other people have had a similar problem with connecting to their pc, but I'm still stuck.
I start with a hard reset(battery out for an extended period of time). I start the device and plug it into the wall first, and it begins to charge. Then I connect it to my pc by USB, and it does not connect with or without desktop manager running. The little plug-in icon comes on, then goes off after a couple seconds, and the desktop manager says its disconnected. Sometimes i get a message that says something like 'unable to install...device may not work properly.' This happens with both my home and office computers.
next thing to try: bluetooth? well it doesn't work. With the BB and computer paired, the desktop manager still doesn't find it.
Then, I plug it back into the wall and now it won't charge.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
