ok first things first. Is the computer a PC or Mac. If its a PC then the first thing to do is download the program for your computer, for example if your Pearl is a Cingular Pearl, then make sure to install Cingular Communication Manager. If you have a Mac then download Pocket Mac (available from RIM's website or pocketmac.com).

Now if data connection refused is the message on the BB, then most likely you either don't have a data plan, the data plan isn't active, the wrong data plan is on your account, or you are suffering from lack of data service in your area.

What exactly are you trying to load onto the pearl?

Data connection refused has nothing to do with being able to connect to the computer that simply means you don't have a Data Plan from your provider which is what you need to receive emails and surf the web and such. #2 you cant load themes anyway other than downloading them straight to your 8100 from http://www.mobileblackberry.com and there are only 5 themes right now if i am correct. There is also a way to unlock the themes from other providers and that you can find very easy using the nifty search option this forum has.
Make sure you installed the desktop manager is a good start. then make sure it says connected when you plug the bb in via USB cable.
