Default Vista 64 Bit Drivers

Please Login to Remove!

I just installed Vista 64 on my machine as I was getting tired of 32. But my phone won't connect to my computer. It can't find the drivers for it. Downloaded and installed the USB & Modem drivers from BB site, but didn't work. Mind you, I can't read French anyway. LoL. No drivers in English.

Can anyone help me out? Or am I going to have to scrap 64 bit?

Idon't know for sure but I heard there is a lot of things that are not compatible with the 64 bit Vista System.

Don't know if this would apply.

An update is available that improves the compatibility and reliability of Windows Vista

Default Vista 64bit works

Vista 64bit works fine with the latest Blackberry Desktop Manager.

You may also want to make sure you have the latest chipset dirvers for your motherboard, since you just installed vista.

Just in the process of updating to SP1, so hopefully this will solve the problem. Was working just fine when I had my 32 bit installed.

At work now, so will check and see when I get home.

Finally got it connected after the SP1 upgrade, but still looking for 3 drivers. Strange.
