Desktop software help.

I recently bought myself a BB torch and am wanting to find out how to get the software installed on my PC. The disk supplied doesn't have any software on it and wants me to download it. I do not have a connection at home, Also, how would I get my Windows XP Home system to recognise my phone. I mostly want to backup my phone and to put some mp3s on my phone so that I can listen to some music whilst I am at work.

Re: Desktop software help.

If the disk supplied does not have (and I thought it did) the Desktop Software for the PC, you'll need to download it, or have a friend download it for you and burn it to a CD for you.


I would recommend Desktop Manager, version 6. Download Desktop Manager from here:
