It sounds like you want to use Mass Storage Mode with your device.
Actually you don't need Desktop Manager, but you do need the Device Manager, which is a part of the Desktop Manager package. You can install only the Device Manager by choosing the Custom option, and choosing not to install the Desktop Manager (which will in turn only install the Device Manager).
In your case, you said you have the Desktop Manager installed. You can confirm that the Device Manager is working by plugging your device in with the USB cable, and checking your Curve's screen to see if the device is charging. If so, your driver is probably working okay.
The next step is to ensure you have Mass Storage mode turned on with your device. Go to
Options > Media Card
and make sure you have
Media card Support = ON
Mass Storage Mode Support = ON
Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected = YES
If you don't have a password, then this should make your media card show up as a flash drive (but probably won't "pop up" like you see with flash drives, you'll need to go to Explorer and look under My Computer).
