I have a BB Curve 8530 and a new computer. I downloaded the desktop manager software right after I got the computer, and the phone connected just fine, synched calendars, etc. but now whenever I open the software it says I need to connect the device. When I connect the device it doesn't recognize it; instead a window opens within Windows 8 File Manager telling me the contents of my media card. I can't synch though!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Here is the list of troubleshooting articles...hopefully something will be useful:
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!
