    USB cable not charging 8707g (thru PC USB port)

    Advertisement



    Hi, recently I have been issued a BB 8707 (susbcribed thru SingTel) by my company. However, I found that the USB cables that comes with the set could not charge the 8707 model thru my laptop USB connection. According to my colleague who uses the 7 series BB has not encountered such problem.

    Any advice will be much appreciated. Cheer !

    You probably need to have the driver installed at the very least otherwise your laptop will shut down the USB port. Installing desktop manger will also take care of this as the RIM USB driver is part of the install.

    the desktop manager software on CD that comes with your device. Let us know if you have already done this. Welcome to pinstack!

    You'll need to install the driver for it as Haydn said. Without it, it wont charge. I've seen some systems pull the driver from microsoft automatically, but not very often.

    icelatte, Welcome to PinStack. Also make sure that power saving is disabled for USB ports for your laptop.

    Re: USB cable not charging 8707g (thru PC USB port)

    Hello all,
    Thank you so much for all the advices. My Blackberry finally managed to be charged using the USB cable, but it was not a smooth sailing for me tho. Initially after installing the Blackberry Desktop Manager the connection was not stable at all when I connect my berry to my PC (it keeps connecting and disconnecting). After much trials, I finally found out that problem was due to the USB hub that I am using. My understanding that Direct USB port provide 500mAh and each of those ports from my USB hub is much lower.

    Last but not least, I have also tried just using only the RimUsb.sys file (copy to \Windows\System32\Drivers folder) without the BB Desktop Manager software. But first, must copy the RimUsb.sys file into an external media, eg. thumb drive before uninstalling Desktop manager. This is because the driver will be removed when the Blackberry Desktop Manager software is removed.

    Anyway, it is working now with just the RimUsb.sys driver without BB desktop mgr software. Thanks again to all, you guys are great.
