    Blackberry pearl and vista problems..

    Advertisement



    ok so I have a new laptop thats running vista and I've been trying to connect my pearl to it. I've tried downloading service pack 4.2.1 and it keeps saying "disconnected" in the desktop manager and when I try to detect it using usb it says "no connection available"

    I've also tried to connect it using bluetooth to no avail. I've successfully connected the bluetooth device to other things I have...but not to my pearl. I've gotten my computer to recognize it but only as an audio gateway device.

    Honestly..I just want an easier way to access what's on my sd card other than physically taking it out and getting my laptop to read it..any suggestions?

    all i can tell you is to keep trying.....as i've been using Vista for about 2 months now w/ zero problems and using BB Pearl on Vista w/ zero problems.

    yep that sure is the problem , you need to install vmplayer and install a virtual windows xp inside it that will work fine some links below to help you

    there you go it lets you run an os inside an os , for example you can run windows xp inside vista

    Will there be an eventual software release on RIM's part that will fix this in the future?

    yeah i'm definitely looking into it...
    does the fact that I'm running a 64bit also affect my ability to connect to my pearl using bluetooth as well?

    yep its all connected , x64 is great for speed but has so many problems with drivers , and because most people use the 32 bit versions , the software makers give priority to them , but just a silly question did you install DM 4.2 service pack 1
