My BlackBerry is shown as charging when it is plugged in but my laptop does not show the BlackBerry. It is not listed when I try to find it under Device Manager.
Do you know of anything else I can try? Do you have any idea why my computer is not detecting my BlackBerry?
Note: my office computer DOES detect my BlackBerry, as I can sync everything but my Calendar to my Outlook there (but my Calendar is one of my most important applications, hence why it is crucial that I be able to back it up someplace).
Hope I am not too late to help...
There is a pretty easy solution to get your laptop to recognize the blackberry, check to see if the mass storage mode has been turned off.
The first time you use the usb to sync the blackberry will ask you "Turn on Mass Storage Mode?" If you selected "No" and checked off "do not ask again" it wont ask you, it just wont show up in your C drive or in Finder on your mac.
To change it in Options, just go to "Media Card."
Hope you didn't throw it against the wall...
