    I have had a Blackberry 8830 for 2 years and just bought the Storm on release day, LOVE the phone, I know alot about blackberries and read this site daily, However I just bought a new laptop a few months ago and decided to finally sync the phone to my computer (never done that before). So i downloaded the Blackberry Desktop manager v4.7 and it wont acknowledge my BBerry Storm. The USB drive does and the drivers are all installed but the program itself will not acknoweledge the device, there for the backup buttons and such show up but are unclickable, any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

    Try using a different USB port on your laptop... if that doesn't work, try a different USB cable.

    I am also have the same issue. It's very frustrating to not be able to update your Blackberry. I was at one point able to sync the two, but now...nothing. I too am able to access the drives, and move files to and from. But, that simply has just made my blackberry into a very expensive USB thumb drive. If anyone has any ideas on this subject matter, please message me asap.

    FYI...I have pulled the battery, reinstalled software, uninstalled software, formatted my computer, changed USB cables, and still nothing. Is this just a flaw in the new Blackberry software?

    BlackBerry Desktop Manager contains the correct USB drivers, they were installed with the package.

    Try Windows Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall... Select the repair option to insure everything is correctly installed.

    BlackBerry support has published this paper on dealing with USB connection issues. If this still does not help, try a different computer.
