    You'll need to turn on USB Mass Storage mode in order to access the contents of the device, or any media cards you have in it. You can also set the device to give you a prompt to either charge the device or also allow for media syncing when you connect via USB.

    See this link, which also shows you the online user guide for the 8520/8530 series: Change how you transfer files between your device and your computer - BlackBerry Curve 8520/8530 Smartphones - User Guide - BlackBerry Curve Series - 5.0

    Installing BlackBerry Desktop Software is also a good idea.

    Start the Blackberry Desktop Manager on the laptop. It will then Read the files on the Curve
