I downloaded the latest software from Blackberry (and even tried installing it from the original CD), but it still won't work.
Both of my laptop's USB ports work, which picked up other devices on them.
If it's the cable, why am I able to charge it?
What am I doing wrong? (If this has been addressed already, please excuse this post since I am new here. I did search for solutions online, but I couldn't find one.)
I would like to install the latest software for it and see how it works before I upgrade to a newer model (which I may do anyway).
In the words of the Talking Heads, "How do I work this?"
When you installed desktop manager, did you right click the installer and tell it to install as administrator? If not try that
