    No Connection to USB port

    Advertisement



    I'm using a Blackberry 8100 with a USB cable plugged in. It charges, so I'm sure it's plugged in. When I choose the "Blackberry Desktop Manager" to upload and download files from it, I go to the Connection Settings, choose USB, and press Detect. No device detected. Yes, the phone is on. I have no idea why it doesn't connect. It used to be able to connect. I've tried multiple USB cables and ports. I don't have a Bluetooth either. Please help!

    Is the OS installed on the PC?

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean. I downloaded the Device and Desktop manager from the Blackberry website. Where can I get the OS?

    The OS is a separate download from desktop manager. The OS can be downloaded from http://www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade/

    Would I choose "Handheld software" from the list of applications?

    I downloaded and installed it, it still doesn't detect the Blackberry connection. Strange. I'm sure it's actually "connected" because it charges and lights up the screen when I plug it in, though it keeps saying "Device Not Found".
