Angry Pearl 8120 + Windows 7 64-bit + Bluetooth sync

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Maybe someone can help me on this:

I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Found and installed the new v5.0.1.28 of the Blackberry Desktop Software. Everything works fine if I sync via USB cable. But, if I try the Bluetooth connection, the Desktop Software remains in shadow like waiting on something from the BB.

It does recognize the BB over Bluetooth and asks me if I wish to connect that way. But as soon as I click on Ok it just stays on the "processing" little window over the Main Menu. After a while it gives a timeout error.

I checked for updates, under the Help option, but apparently it's up to date.

Any ideas? Should I "downgrade" the Desktop Manager to a previous version? If so, which one would work under 64-bit?

Thanks!

Bluetooth synching has always been a hit-and-miss thing for BB users. I don't think it has to do with your BB DM version; its more of an issue with the BT software on computers and how RIM designed their BT protocols to work with them.

Do a search around the forum as this has been discussed several times recently. I'm on wap so I can't link you some of the search results.
