    For Blackberry 8300, the Desktop Manager 4.5.0 download page has links to download Device Manager 4.5.0.13. I have no idea what that is. Is that a device operating system? Aren't you supposed to get it from carrier web site?

    It is not an OS. It does what it's name inplies, it resides on a pc and links with the device to manage the different options such as install apps, backups and sync the address book & calendar.
    The DM is not carrier specific and you download it from Blackberry.com

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    This is a new topic today, all topics are welcome.

    Nothing posted today was even close to answering your question, good thing you asked.

    A new version of Desktop Manager. It will do everything the old one did and more. The Roxio media manager has been updated and the look has been refreshed.

    That wasn't so tough. I used 14 more characters explaining it then Joel did dissing the OP.

    Thanks for replying back Joel.

    The first post came across like a polite bush off. Perhaps if you had posted a link to the thread, I would have understood.

    Some heavily moderated forums can not function without the presence of dozens of self appointed mods.

    I will link you to a discussion we had a couple months ago. The consensus is, we value the input of new members. Even if the questions are old to us, they are new and important to the member asking.

    No hard feelings, and lets carry on from here.

    No. The package replaces the earlier v4.3 BlackBerry Desktop Manager with Roxio Media Manager.

    You still need to download a device specific OS from BlackBerry.

    I have been waiting for this to happen.

    This is a huge file, nearly 200 Mb. That puts it in the same size range as compressed movies.

    Many ISP's are engaged in bandwidth shaping. If you are using more then the average amount of data, your service can be cut back. They usually do it on the upload side.

    If BlackBerry loses your heartbeat, download over.

    Try it again in off peak hours.

    So, I need BOTH the Device Manager package and the Desktop Manager package?

    Yes.

    They are two seperate pieces of software, when you are done, your control panel should look like this:



    Except for the version numbers, of course.

    Stoner, I agree, and again I say I was probably just pissy that day maybe...thinkin I probably woulda been discouraged if I came into a forum and received that response as well so I appologize, i just dont have much patience for people who don't research the topic and creat more and more threads about the same thing. I find it lazy

    Purpleberry, many people have been having issues if they did not uninstall the provious DM before installing the new one, this may help
