Re: My computer doesn't recognize my blackberry

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Please ensure that:

1) You have already installed the RIM Desktop Software:


2) You have properly activated Mass Storage Mode:

  • KB11879 What is mass storage mode


Are you able to see your Device Memory? With the above properly completed, you should see two additional drive letters in Windows...one for Device Memory and the other for the Media Card.


Good luck and let us know!
