Blackberry Desktop Manager won't read Blackberry Torch

I've been having trouble with my Blackberry Torch as my computer will not recognize it in Blackberry Desktop Software. It's actually very wierd because I will plug my phone in to a USB port and the port will charge the phone, but nothing else happens. The reason why this is weird because I've had it work for a long time and then one day, it just didn't work any more. I've done every type of trouble-shooting listed in the Help menu including rebooting the computer/phone, replacing the cable, re-downloading the software, etc etc. I've also been able to connect the phone using Bluetooth, but unfortunately I was limited with what I could do with that connection (ie. I couldn't tranfer any music/media).

 

So yeah if you have any suggestions, please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

Re: Blackberry Desktop Manager won't read Blackberry Torch

Hey meku2k3,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

The USB cable you're using does it have a BlackBerry symbol on it?

 

Also follow the steps in this article to remove the software: www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB02206

 

Once completed unplug the BlackBerry via USB, and download the new software from www.blackberry.com/desktop

 

Then plug in the BlackBerry it should install some new drivers.  Then BlackBerry Desktop Software should detect the BlackBerry.

Re: Blackberry Desktop Manager won't read Blackberry Torch

[ Edited ]

I'm having the same problem and have already removed and re-downloaded Blackberry Desktop Manager and it does not resolve the problem. So far I've also had broswer issues (recently resolved with battery pull) and media sync problems (unresolved) when Blackberry Desktop Manager did detect my phone but now has suddenly stopped. Quite frustrating to say the least. I've even created a tread to resolve some of these problems and have not received any solution in weeks or longer. I've also spent several hours troubleshooting myself. I just wish Blackberry would come up with a more reliable product.

 

PS I just did a restart on my computer and it now detects my Torch however the media sync problem is still ongoing.

Hello!

Here is the list of troubleshooting articles...hopefully something will be useful:

KB02640 Troubleshooting USB connections
KB15486 Top 10 BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry Desktop Manager troubleshooting tips

Also, check that you are using only root USB ports...no hubs (sometimes the front-side ports are hubs...use a rear USB port). And make sure to try disabling USB power management in your system configuration (Device Manager).

Also check on conflicting software...it has been reported that the software package NTI Shadow&Ninja can cause a conflict; removing them and reinstalling the BB desktop software allows it to install correctly.

Apologies in advance if this is redundant -- there's no way to be sure if you've already seen and tried these. Also apologies if any are not presently available...RIM takes them up and down at will as they revise things.

Hopefully something there is helpful!

Cheers!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Here is something you should first perhaps try, before those tricks. The simplest way is to, on a PC (you cannot do this on MAC):

1) Uninstall, from your PC, any BB OS packages

2) Make sure you have the BB Desktop Software already installed

3) Download and install, to your PC, the BB OS package you desire:

  • http://us.blackberry.com/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp
  • It is sorted first by carrier -- so if all you want are the OS levels your carrier supports, your search will be quick. However, some carriers are much slower than others to release updates. To truly seek out the most up-to-date OS package for your BB, you must dig through and find all carriers that support your specific model BB, and then compare the OS levels that they support.

4) Delete, on your PC, all copies of VENDOR.XML...there will be at least one, and perhaps 2, and they will be located in or similarly to (it changes based on your Windows version) these folders:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
  • C:\Users\(your Windows UserName)\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

Now you are ready to try the tricks, but since this thread is so ancient, I'll re-post my current list of things to try...
