    Hello Jsmurf.
    Couple of details please.

    Which device are we dealing with?

    What Version of DM are you currently using?

    If you are at you PC and the device in question is synced via sync cable, Open My Computer. Do you see the two Mapped Blackberry Devices in the screen?

    We will deal with the BBM later if you don't mind.

    Okay JSmurf good details, Thanks. Lastly, are you able to see the two mapped BlackBerry device drives when you have the device synced up to the PC? Look in the My Computer Icon that is on your desktop. Once the screen comes up, there you should see the two mapped BB drives I am asking about.

    I think you will need to have the mass storage mode enabled before you can perform the upgrade JSmurf.

    I thinks that is right. I always have my Mass Storage Mode enabled.

    To upgrade your OS you can have either the Mass storage enabled or disabled. If you are having trouble upgrading the OS I would try reinstalling or upgrading Desktop Manager.

    I would try removing Desktop manager and upgrading to a newer version. I work on BlackBerrys all day and have seen crazy stuff with Desktop Manager trying to recognize a BlackBerry.

    Rebooting the system, sometimes right clicking on my computer then going to manage, then device manager, then USB then go to the top and select "scan hardware changes" fixes it also.

    Is the new OS .163 from a different vendor or is it also from Sprint?

    I think JSmurf might need to delete the vendor.xml file to try and upgrade his wife's BlackBerry. according to the OP.

    Have you tried deleting the vendor.xml ?

    Hi jsmurf, I am sorry that dm is giving you trouble. It doesn't like hybrids. A couple suggestions I can add to what others told you:

    1. If you want to keep bbm5 for your wife, run shrink a os and remove the bbm from the os and bbm5 will load as 3rd party app.

    2. If you still want to run dm, try turning off pc internet connection for the upgrade.

    3. If dm doesn't work, I would strongly suggest going with the app loader( c: program files>common files>research in motion> app loader and double click on loader exe)

    And lastly, double check to make sure that vendor.xml is deleted.

    Keep us posted.
