Default 8800 / 8820 Device Memory access instead of SD?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to get my 8820 to present the on-board memory as a mass storage drive instead of the SD slot in Windows XP?

Currently, when I try to open the drive, I get the "Please insert a disk into blah-blah drive" message because I don't have an SD card in my phone. I would like to load files directly onto the device memory. I don't like the Roxio media manager because it seems like an unnecessarily complex program AND because it filters filetypes that it will "see" to strictly media files. I recall with my old 8100 being able to use Desktop Manager to directly transfer files of any type to a specified folder on the phone. Is there a way to do this with my 8820?

Thanks!

I am not positive but mass storage is only for the card and not the internal memory. I do not understand why your computer keeps asking for a drive that is not there unless you had a card in there at one time and then removed it. DO you have mass storage turned on? If so turn it off to stop the message.

I've never had an SD card in my phone. When I connect my BB to my computer, a new drive appears in "My Computer". When I try to access this drive, that's when I get the Please Insert Disk message. I distinctly remember using the Desktop Manager to access the internal memory of an 8100. There was no Roxio software involved...

You can not access the internal memory directly from the PC (as a drive).

Older versions (4.2 SP1 I think) had a built in Media Manager (not Roxio) which allows access to both device memory and the microSD card. I still use that.

If only I could get rid of the bloody filtering that the Roxio software does...
