    Hey to all you BB's out there. Just got a Pearl. I know it's not the latest, but it's still a great piece of kit, and as a business man, I don't know how I went without for so long.

    Charging probs from PC

    Hi from Sydney!
    Also just bought a Pearl from Ebay and am having trouble trying to charge from PC with supplied USB cable. Desktop manager is loaded but gives me error that USB port is not powered or incorrect driver is installed. Do you have any similar probs?

    In my experience, some laptops (particularly cheaper and/or older ones) do not supply sufficient power to their USB ports. The laptop I have at work now allows communication when using about half the USB ports - but the others tell me there is insufficient power.

    I get the same message when I plug my BB into my (new) PC, however I've found that even though it says it won't charge, it still does - although it's slower than the power cord I was supplied with.

    Cheers,
