    Roy the only way your 8800 will sync with desktop manager is by using the Microsoft Bluetooth driver. I'm using Vista Business with my Samsung Q1P and sync my BB using the BT option. I had to go to Devices and remove the bluetooth drive that was installed which was the Broadcom driver. Once I uninstalled it I let windows detect and install the microsoft one. You can tell by the dark blue icon that will be at the task bar, thats the microsoft one. All other drivers will show a light blue icon for the BT on the task bar. If you do try to uninstall make sure you do a restore point just in case you cant get the BT driver right.
