Then you have a PC problem, not a BlackBerry problem.

Make sure you download and install the DM v5, without Media Manager. It's smaller and the Media Manager software is quite clunky.

Generally you know.
XP, Vista, Windows 7?

Right click your My computer icon, go to properties, it should tell you.

First things first.

What OS on the PC and how much RAM?

Did DM install on the PC - do you have an icon for it? Or did the exe file just download someplace?

Duplicate -- this conversation has already started in your previous thread and probably should be continued there to keep all discussion in one place and to avoid having to repeat the same things already discussed.

Wow, "intel pentium III 334 MHz 128 MB of ram". That may have been a standard PC 10 years ago but not now. I am wondering if DM will even run on this ancient puter.

Merged with the OPs second thread.

I don't think DM will run on your PC.

Suggestion: Find a friend with a new model or buy a newer PC.
