Hope this helps!
Every time I talk to anyone on this forum, it always helps. I still sound like an idiot, but I am learning a little more everyday.
Re: your quote above -
When you ask if I get a "view folder" or "explore folder" option when I plug in my 8700, do you mean in Desktop Manager? - because I don't get either. Or do you mean when I don't start DM at all just point to my portable mass storage drive?
I've been advised to go to 4.2.1 version of DM and frankly it was such a drag the last 4 times I downloaded this software (ver.4.2.2) that I dread doing it again. I don't need the switch devices wizard or sychronize even. I don't want my BB to become an iPOD for music. I just want to get some other pictures into the BB, maybe some ringtones and just enjoy. I also don't want to opt in to another $30 charge from Cingular for a data plan/email/mms ! At least not till I get the kinks out of this mess !
You're very nice to work with me. Thank you. I'm still loving my BB just not the DM software. Are there other Media Manager software packages out there? Maybe thats my problem.
