I am trying to load OS to Blackberry 7230 device ( error 507). but the message I get on PC whilst trying to load is "A newer version of the Application Loader is required to load the system software on this device [A:0x00000008]". I have Desktop manager 7.1 ( which it says is the latest). What else can I do. I tried loading through command prompt with same result.

What version of Windows® OS do you have? Please try verifying that the Application Loader does not need to be updated by navigating to www.blackberry.com/update via a computer browser and checking for updates.
If no updates to Application Loader are required, please try downloading and installing the BlackBerry® Device Software on your computer before trying to do the software reload again. You can download it from your wireless provider's site in this list. http://bbry.lv/O7ERyD
Hope this helps.

Hi, thanks for the reply.
My pc is operating Windows 7 64 bit. My Blackberry Desktop is 7.1.
i have downloaded the original device OS vers. and the latest and tried to load through desktop and by loader alone, but still get this message. it appears to start reading but then the above error message. The battery appears ok, but I am waiting on a new one very soon, just to be sure.
Now when trying to load via dsktop it says update to device unrecognised failed check internet connection. Internet connection is ok.
Baffled am I

Do you have a backup of your BlackBerry® smartphone? If so, you may want to start the BlackBerry® Device Software reload without the battery inserted to force it to connect.
Please note that this process will remove all personal data and applications from the BlackBerry smartphone.
Hope this helps.

Hi, When using desktop, once I connect usb cable i get an error "blackberry desktop software device information update failed. Please verify you have a valid internet connection".
When I try direct from apploader, I get error "unable to connect to device".

When you try to force the detection using Application Loader, do you have the battery removed? Do you receive the connection error immediately or does the software reload start and then give the unable to connect error message?

Try doing the application load again, this time leaving the battery out until the application load reaches "Wating for Device Initialization". Then reinsert the battery and see if the application load completes.

I tried direct from apploader as you suggested. As soon as I pressed next, following the connection port number. It came back with " could not connect to device.
With the batterry in I get as far as " Device Application selection" blackberry 4.0.2 System software is ticked.
it the opens another window to say it will be loaded then starts, but fails at first section " connecting to JVM
