I'm new to Blackberrys and I am trying to get one to connect to the PC as it is showing as disconnected in Desktop Manager.
So, I've looked around all the forums, taken the battery out for over a minute, enabled mass media storage (it already was).
One thing I have noticed is when I plug it into a laptop that it has never been plugged into, it just isn't picked up by the O\S. It's as if something needs enabling? I'd expect at least a message to say the relevant driver isn't installed.
So ... the lead? It's a standard USB cable - does it have to be a specific cable? Is a standard USB the wrong pinout for example? Or do I need to enable some sort of USB support on the Blackberry itself?
The story is, we need to get some data off it. Maybe Bluetooth is an option but I'd have to get some Bluetooth device on the laptop.
Is it that it's just 'good old' broken.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
