    I'm definitely not a pro but I'll try.

    Do you have the latest Desktop Manager? You can download it at Blackberry.com

    Oh & welcome to CB!

    You need to download the handheld OS that matches your your device, from here
    BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites


    On your BB, go into options, about, there you will see a number like 4.3.x.x

    Then on the link i provided, go into your carrier, and download the OS that has the same number.

    After that, you will have a quick start icon on your PC desktop, click it and it will install the OS to your Desktop manager.

    The CD was for the Desktop Manager.

    The handheld OS is a different download, it doesn't come on the cd.
