| | 8830 Mass Storage Issue

I can't seem to find a solution in past posts so here goes:
Added 2gb Micro SD to 8830, formatted, set to mass storage on phone. Desktop 4.6 will not see the MicroSD card at all. When I connect via USB to my PC Windows XP tries to install the "RIM Mass Storage Device" but can't find any drivers. I've disabled my AntiVirus, tried the BB disc and the Verizon disks that came with the phone and still no luck finding the 2gb. When I connect to my work PC it pops up with an "e" drive as soon as I connect showing the microSD so obviously the phone is set up correctly.
Also the home PC does show the 8830 in devices and again the Desktop software does see the embedded memory on the 8830 just no mass storage.
Second question, if you turn off Mass Storage Mode, will the desktop software see the entire SD card along with the embedded storage or are they always separate?
