Hi angelicating and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


It's possible that even though you have your BlackBerry Curve connected, your computer may not be detecting it or it may not have the proper drivers installed.  I would recommend downloading and installing the BlackBerry Desktop Software if you haven't done so already.  This will install the proper drivers needed to detect and access the device.
