My Device: 8110

Problems connecting to desktop software

Your carrier: Vodafone UK

 

Model info and OS version: 8110 v4.5.0.180

 

File free before battery remove/replace: 12595211

 

Did a battery pull fix your issue?  No

 

Apps installed and their version if possible: Facebook, MapMyRun

 

BT device model/version: None connected

 

 

 

Details

 

Windows 7 64 bit, current fixpack

 

Blackberry Desktop 7.1.0.41

Windows recognises the device.  Drivers are up to date and I have chnaged USB power management settings as outlined in the knowledgebase, disabled selective suspend plus set software to run as an administrator.  I have tried different USB cables and all three ports

 

After lots of tries (including starting with the battery out) I have managed to connect once today (not sure how), and it took almost an hour to transfer 2 35MB files to the newly encrypted media card - painful.  After that it didn't want to play any more! 

 

When I connect now I am prompted for a password, and either a backup is attempted, which I can't cancel, or it sits in the "connecting" forever. 

 

Any clues?

Re: Problems connecting to desktop software

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

I suggest this thread:

It starts with a process for cleanly starting over, and there is some discussion, and there is also a post (15) with links to older Desktop Software versions, if those are needed. Note that this is not, by any means, guaranteed to work...but it has worked for many to resolve issues they are having.

Good luck!
