    Sync 8830 to DM on multiple PCs?

    Advertisement



    I have an 8830 that I sync with my work PC (all Outlook 2003).
    I would also like to sync with my home PC/Outlook.

    My home PC will not recognize that my BB is connected (USB).

    Is this a know limitation, or am I doing something wrong ?

    I am running 4.2.2.176 OS and V4.3 DM.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Im not sure why yours is not reconizing your bb to your home pc but i sync my bb to three computers with out any problems so there should not be any limitations to doing it. But beware if you do that i suggest to set your sync options to either handheld wins or pc wins so that why there in sync, rather then ask option or else some info may not be the same on both computers.

    you have desktop manager installed on the home pc? does device manager (in control panel) see the BB? did you try a different USB port?

    the dn mgr on the home pc says "not connected". I did a BB soft reset while it was plugged into the USB cable, and when the BB restarted, the the device pin was momentarily displayed in the pop config window (device recognized), but it quickly goes back to not detected.

    I am able to use this USB cable with no problem to sync with my work laptop. I tried plugging the usb cable into a different physical USB port on my home pc.

    ??????

    unplug device from cable, restart comp to refresh all services and devices and then reconnect bb to home comp.

    Also check your blackberry device manager (not desktop manager) and see if there is a connection

    The device mgr does not show a connection.
    It lists com1-3 (disabled), but nothing for USB.

    under device manager in the about tab does it show:

    blackberry device manager
    bbdevmgr
    rim usb driver
    rim serial driver

    I think the important factors are the first three.

    SO.. the device is not showing up anywhere. not even in the device manager of the pc? I dont know if this might work but maybe try to install the device update software from your carrier onto your home pc. You can go here to get to your carriers website for the software.
