Does DM launch and operate just fine without the phone plugged in?
No! Hung with or without phone plugged in.
Definitely sounds like an issue with your computer. You downloaded the most recent version of DM from the BlackBerry web site correct?
V5.0.1 downloaded and installed. Now working on Vista where the problem probably lies.
Okay try this. Uninstall that version, and install v4.7.
Ok I hope no one minds but I am going to chime in here.
Check here first:
Go to Device Manager and rt click on all usb root hubs and choose properties, power management and make sure no boxes are checked. If they were, uncheck and save, reboot and try connecting your device again. If it still will not connect do this:
Uninstall all blackberry software
Download and install JRE (java runtime enviroment)
Download and install blackberry USB and Modem drivers
Download and install blackberry DM (220.127.116.11)
Thanks for all the assistance. PROBLEM SOLVED!!
Bad knock-off cable. Replaced with genuine BB cable and Voila, the BB works as it should. Cable only received Sat. PM, otherwise would have saved a lot of head scratching.
Now, will attempt to make this thing pop.
Almost sounds like the cable in question was a "charge only" cable, in other words, the power pins are hooked up, but not the data lines.
