* 1 Power on your PC and turn on your Blackberry phone. * 2 Insert the Blackberry driver installation software CD that came with your Blackberry phone. If you do not have this, proceed to Step 3. The PC will automatically search for drivers when the phone connects. * 3 Connect the miniature USB end to the mini-USB port on the Blackberry phone. It is advisable to have the cord connected to the phone before connecting it to the computer. That way, when the cord plugs in to the USB port on the PC, it can immediately begin reading the phone's data. * 4 Connect the other standard USB end of the USB/Blackberry connecting cord to a 2.0 USB port on the computer. Most USB ports are 2.0, but if you have an older computer this may not be the case. When you connect the Blackberry, if the USB port is not a 2.0 you will get a pop-up that notifies you of this. You will need to find another computer with a 2.0 USB port to connect to. * 5 Wait for the PC to download and install the drivers that are necessary in order for it to read your Blackberry correctly. A small pop-up will notify you that your device is now installed and ready to be used on the computer.

For God's sake! How the hells I need to get this piece of... software to work?
Is that hard? I mean, hey, Im using right now tons of USB portable devices which work like a charm, so why my brand new Blackberry phone still asking me for: what tipe of connection you want (hundred of times) ?
10 (yeah ten) minutes to connect a simple usb storage, this thing which supposedly will make my life easier is driving me nuts fellas!
Running on Win7 32bits sp1 and WinXP pro sp3 x86
Why I cannot use it like a simple plug & play device, like any USB mass storage stuff.
Its a completely waste of time & money.
Drivers drivers drivers, pull out battery, double triple check usb cable, clean out USB registry entries.... blah blah blah.

Idk, can you?
If your answer is YES, please I beg you not to tell me all the stuff that is hanged around the whole web.
Why? because I've tried everything with only one result: Tons of minutes waiting for a simple PC to Cellphone connection.

Windows 7 PC; Desktop mgr. 4.2...installed the recommended drivers 4.5 before installing Desktop Mgr. If you're asking for an OS for the Pearl, whatever came with the 8100.
Okay! Your instructions were a bit different from what I encountered when trying to follow them on my Pearl 8100, but I did find the Media Card line, and configured as you suggested. My PC now recognizes my Pearl ("connected", and the device PIN is displayed at the bottom of Desktop Mgr.. Also, when I click "Options", then Connection Settings, my Pin also appears between "Connection" and the "Detect" button.
I clicked the Synchronize icon in Desktop Mgr.
A. Don't I then check "Synchronize Organizer Data"? Then,
B. Configuration tab
C. Configure Synch button
WHEN I ATTEMPT TO CHECK "MEMO PAD", I T WON'T CHECK, BUT IT WILL HIGHLIGHT.
1) I click the "Choose" button with Memo Pad highlighted.
THIS IS WHERE I'M TOTALLY LOST.
I'm presented with options to select:
*Novell GroupWise 6"
I assumed I should choose "ASCII Importer/Exporter.
When I do so, I get these options:
"Import", "Export", and, "Synchronize"
I assumed, "Synchronize".
I was also presented with a Browse button, that, when pressed, gave me a "Select ASCII Importer Exporter File", with an "Open" button. I chose the Blackberry Desktop Mgr. File.
Then, when I attempt to synchronize using the Sync icon in the Mgr., I get, "The ASCII Importer/Exporter can only be used with the import and export operations."
Apparently not the correct choice.
