Default Connecting BB to computer

Please Login to Remove!

I want to download some images and sounds from my PC.

However I cannot get the computer to connect!

What am I doing wrong - or more correctly what am I not doing?

Do you have Desktop Manager installed on the PC? Search using Google and you can find the link on the RIM website.

I ran into the same problem and could use some help with this one too. I do have the Desktop Manager. It also wouldn't let me download the latest software. Any suggestions?
All good things come to an end but not all endings are good. Recycle that old phone by selling it to us.

You don't use DM to put media on your BB. Ensure you have a SD card & you go to Options - Memory - Enable Mass Storage. Your SD card will show up as an external drive when you plug your BB in. Just drag & drop your media into the correct folder.
