Desktop connection

I have an Blackberry Curve 8530 which I sync to my desktop calendar.  I got a new desktop, and downloaded the Desktop Manager software.  The first time I used everything worked fine.  However, the software now does not recognize when the phone is connected.  Instead, a Windows File Manager window opens to let me view the media card. 


the new computer has a Windows 8 operating system.


Any thoughts on this?

Re: Desktop connection

Hi Mongan,


You may have the option to automatically enable Mass Storage Mode when connected to your computer. Try disabling this by going into Options>Storage from your BlackBerry smartphone.


Let me know if that helps.
