    Win XP boot issues with DM 5.0 media sync

    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced extremely slow computer startup issues with DM 5.0 installed with media sync?

    I was having very slow boot times on my Toshiba laptop. It would sit and appear to have no activity for several minutes. Through the Windows event viewer I discovered the Roxio software (media sync) was having an error during startup. Once I uninstalled the DM and reinstalled it without the media manager, my laptop startup returned to normal.

    Anyone else notice something like this?

    Yeah Media Manager is a troublesome devil of a program. Always better to install DM without it.

    Hi, I am having similar problems with my pc and a very slow startup.
    Two questions,
    1)how do I uninstall roxio media and keep dm 5.0 (I'm a newbie, so I need pretty detailed directions)
    and
    2) How do you manage transfer of pictures/videos/ringtones to your sd card and device without the roxio?

    Thanks for the help, if I could reduce the start up time, it would be great!

    First off welcome to BlackberryOS

    On your pc go to control panel add/remove programs and uninstall Desktop manager from your pc. Then use this link Here to download DM 5.0 without the media manager.

    As far as managing pictures/music etc when you plug in your BB to your pc enable mass storage mode and you can drag and drop files, like you would with a flash drive
