I have posted this thread in the Experts Round Table...lets see if anyone has any new ideas about the cause...
In the meantime it goes without saying that I would perform frequent back ups if you are concerned about loosing data...
yes, guess that's all i could do for the moment.
and hopefully, this time it will last for a longer period of time before the connection failure comes up again.
thank you all for your kind supporting...especially you, Gary! Thanks!
hi, CSO, sorry for hijacking your thread...my apology!
Hi, Gary, the same problem happened to me again today!!!

Any lead fromthe Experts Round Table? Should I just wipe my handheld again?
anyone please help?!
the connection problem happens again.
in brief, the connection with Desktop Manager worked fine, but then all a sudden, when i plug the USB cable, it firstly prompted for password which i keyed in, then it said "Failed to connect to the device. Please make sure that the device is properly connected and try again."!!
However, i can still see the PIN of my device on the left-bottom corner of Desktop Manager!
Please see the screen print:
First I would suggest updating to a newer version of Desktop Manager. I would do a clean uninstall of the old one you are using then go to 4.5 or 4.6.
should i go all the way up to 4.7?
To many issues with 4.7 for now I would say stay with 4.5 or 4.6.

Do I have to download the "BlackBerry USB and Modem Drivers" as well?
They are included in the download and unless you plan on using media manager there is no reason to get it.
no luck, got 4.5 installed but same connection problem happens! please help!
would there be anything to do with local security thing? say the firewall stops me from communicate with 3rd party device? i have run out of clue!!!
Sorry to see this problem persists. In checking the BTSC, unfortunately this appears to be a known issue with with no known solution or workaround (and it appears in 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7)...not good news I know. Have we tried a new/different operating system version for the device yet?

Thanks Gary. It's kind of relief, that knowing it's not me causing the problem!
The version came with the device had worked well for a certain period of time. But I forgot what version that was...do you know? My device is 8707g!
Or which version I would get the best luck with?
