BB Desktop Software on Windows 7 beta

I got a new Blackberry Storm and am having a difficult time tryig to install the drivers AND the desktop software ( Media Manager) that comes with it on my HP comp using Windows 7 beta. It DID install easily on my Gateway Laptop with the same Windows 7 beta  ? ?     Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: BB Desktop Software on Windows 7 beta

Hi and welcome to the forums!

I am not at all familiar with Windows 7 beta.

If it comes with a Windows update function you can try the following

that works on XP and Vista machines.





1) Power the PC off and then on so it boots cleanly

2) Plug the USB cable into the BB and into the PC

3) Run Windows Update on the PC

4) Windows should find the correct driver for the BB and install it.

5) Disconnect the BB and reboot.

6) Connect the BB, open My Computer and the media card should

be reflected as a removable drive.

7) If you can see the device correctly, then unplug the BB start DM and

reconnect the BB and Configure synch.
