Same symptoms on Bold 9000, same AT&T oddessy, same fix, same Happy Dance now that it is working again.
One note: The batch file asks for your device password if you have one set ... small amount of panic because it was asking for it at the BOOTROM level but I entered it and it accepted and I am typing this via AT&T communication manager ...
Still not working for me. I've got a Storm 9550 and installed os 5.0, then downgraded to 4.7.65 because I couldn't get 4.6 on it from DM. Try to run the batch rile(not the hahanew file)...only got "connecting to bootrom", I disabled Mass Storage, retried and still got the same message.
Just isn't going to work. I guess I'll wait until there's a patch for os 5.0.
Mass Storage Mode - ENABLED - finally thanks Safiy!
Safiy rocks. That fix worked. Classic RIM to force users to search for sooo loooong to find the fix/patch to something like this. Running a batch job like that was scary, but thanks to Pinstack and Safiy, I now have mass storage mode working on my Bold. As a note to others: you might want to Backup before trying...
Once you Down load the .RAR file.. you need to unzip it.. Then remove the file from the .rar Then connect your phone to the computer.. In the file that was un .rar'd.. Click on the File Hahanew.. A DOS window opens and closes very fast.. if you blink you will miss it.. Then click the File BB Storage Activation New.. Hear a Dos window opens and stays open.. Click any button and the the Computer do its thing... The phone will reboot.. Do not press any other keys.. It will just rerun the program.. this is not nessary if your phone has already started to reboot.. the reboot lets you know that this program has run successfully... When your phone has rebooted completely disconnect your phone safetly.. Your mass Storage problems should be fixed.. This has worked on my 9530 Storm.. hope these Directions are helpful
Quoting this because ultimately this has the step some people are missing ;-) Thanks
new to this site. very neewb. down loaded that storage activation file to fix my BOLD sync issues. big problem with that file on my pc is(this where computers make you feel stupid) after the down load the computer asks you what you want to do , save or run. so save it then go to open it , immediately two prompts close then come back again, what do want to do with this file , around and around and around..? so now i have this file sitting in my computer but can't open it ,keeps asking same thing over and over??any help. I hate not knowing how to do this stuff!!
Cheers for this fix! I have been waiting for almost a month and a half for something like this to come around.. now finally i will never have to remove my media card again! thank you thank you thank you
Yes I am an idiot and it did reboot and was VERY excited to see if it worked. Well lets say I am getting closer but still not there it allows my computer to see phone and songs I want to sync. It allowed album art to import or sync and it worked because it allowed me to import 3 songs of 881 I am trying to load. THEN ERROR in media card lost connection, the computer had ERROR MSG Delay Write Failed something timed out or didn’t work. And when I plug the flipping phone in Windows keeps trying to AUTOPLAY or opens my phone with AUTOPLAY.
So I have wasted many many days with this stupid Storm and its about to go through the Stores Front Window this is flipping sickening.
Check your Media Card settings.....Options>Media Card.
Media Card Support should be ON
Encryption Mode should be NONE
Mass Storage Mode Support should be ON
Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected.....I have this set to PROMPT, so I can decide how I want to handle things myself when I connect the device to the computer.....yours is probably set to YES.
OK I have all those options set now but Encryption Mode I do not have I have Compression: Enable or Disable
Here is a really stupid question for you are you up on ITunes? I am not and I am under the impression I can copy my entire Music Library to phone. However it is in LIBRARY not in Playlist could this be my flipping problem?
I see the 881 songs in my list to chose from but not listed as Playlist it is just called MUSIC under playlist heading?? Sorry I am an idiot and not techy but surely struggling.
