Desktop Manager V4.7 Error Code 0x80040057

During sync between the Desktop Manager v4.7 and my Curve (my first BB 1 week old and loving it) I receive error message 0x80040057.  This comes up after trying to sync my contacts.  I have tried to find a listing of error codes on the original CD as well as online but I am coming up blank.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  My other questions have been answered so far by just looking at past postings.

I would try downgrading to 4.6, I've read other people having curve problems with 4.7 too.

Re: Desktop Manager V4.7 Error Code 0x80040057

To be truthful I don't know where the data is being backed up on the PC.  I am sure there is a default location but so far I have not discovered it.  I have always kept my contacts (around 100) on my cell and never on the pc.  With the purchase of the BB and with the Desktop Mgr I thought it would be a good idea to start backing up the info.

 

Yesterday I did find out the Google would sync between Gmail and BB so I tried it and it works great and it sync's both directions where it appears Desktop Mgr only goes one way.

 

Now my question is why should I use Desktop Mgr at all?  Gmail and BB are backing up my contacts and calendar entries so I am wondering if I should work with Desktop Mgr for other reasons?

 

I would appreciate your input.

 

Thanks

Google applications are quite powerful today.
you can use Google Mail + Google Calendar and synchronize email, contacts, and calendar events with your blackberry device.

Some people prefer a desktop PIM (personal information manager).



you can use Desktop Manager just for backing up the content of your device.
