    Have a question about browsing all folders and file in 8100 by "my computer"

    Advertisement



    Hi, veterans. I just had my 8100 pearl lately, and this is my first BB. So I am pretty sure I am one newbie here, and are reading lots of threads here.

    Here is my question. I try to browse all folders and files in 8100 (no microSD card yet). and I connect it by usb cable. There is one new removable driver showed up in "my computer". However, when I try to double-click it, it told me to insert a disk in this driver. I was so confused. Is it normal, or is there something wrong with my BB. Or, maybe there are some other ways to do that? Please give me some suggestion. Thank you.

    Hi InExp. The device will not show up as a mass storage device without the media card. The best way to view the files on the device is to load the desktop manager onto the PC and go through the media manager. The disc drive (usually F: shows up because when you originally connected the phone to the USB it installed the drivers needed for USB connection and mass storage but without the media card you cannot access it. Hope it helps. Welcome to the Stacks.

    heheh, good one

    Also it could be that the new drive letter is there because the pearl acts like a card reader
