I am hoping someone will be able to help me. I am trying to get my blackberry 8330 to connect to the desktop manager, and I tried the above and it doesn't seem to work! Right now on my blackberry screen I have the 507 error message. When I connect my BB with the battery in to the desktop manager, it shows my pin but will not connect.

I would first suggest going into c/program files/common files/research in motion/ app loader

Have you downloaded and installed the OS to your computer?
If yes and it is not from your carrier have you deleted the vendor.xml.
The first thing I would look at is the actual cable you are using and make sure it is keeping a good connection through out the process.

Hi, to ANYONE who can help me.
I have a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and it just went bust on me a week back. It won't turn on, the LED just blinks red. I have tried EVERYTHING, from putting it in a dish of rice to charging it all night long, it just won't work. I'm heartbroken, please HELP!!

Hi, thank u so much. I tried doing the steps posted, but when I plug it in, go to Connection Settings, it doesn't detect. & the option in the drop down menu is just "USB", not USB:UNKNOWN or anything that's been posted. What do I do?!
Again, thank u so much.

Im trying to remember, its been a while since I upgraded on my Curve, does it say USB PIN,? if it does select that one. If not you may have to select "detect device". And it may take more than one try. I have to go to work, but I know since this is fresh that a device expert will help you soon. Ill check on this from time to time today on my BB, but really cant post. Good luck, I know you'll get it going-take your time and dont give up.

Nope, it just says USB. & I've tried a gazillion times! It just keeps saying Device Not Found.

Please try rebooting your PC. Do you have more than one USB port on the PC? What version of Desktop Manager are you using?
01-26-2009, 08:47 AM
Hi I've tried that. I don't think anything's wrong with my laptop though. Um, I'm sorry, I don't know what version! Not the new 1, though. My internet is really slow so I haven't the time to download the new version.

6. Select USB PIN this may take a few moments since there is no battery in the device. you might even have to select detect device in some rare cases.
Do you seen an option to "Detect Device" in your Desktop Manager? Make sure the cable is securely connected, too. It may take a few minutes to detect your device.

I did that.. I've been at it 4 the past hour. "Device Not Found".
01-26-2009, 10:07 AM
Do you have another USB cable you can try?

Have you tried to reinstall the operating system using desktop manager with the battery in the device?
You might also try this somewhat simpler method:
- Start Desktop Manager / Application Loader and click Next. (With your device not connected)
- Then remove and reinstall the battery in your 8100 - AS SOON AS your led comes on, plug in the device. This must be done before the BB finishes resetting.
- Now wait until the drop-down list on the Communication Port Selection window changes to USB PIN and click Next.
- Timing is critical - give it more than one try if needed.
