Nope, still nothing

If your DM is currently recognizing the device's PIN, but requesting a password, it would appear a password has indeed managed to get onto the device.
Are you sure you have "unbricked" the device in question?
Sorry, beyond this, I can't think of what else you could do.
Using DM 5 should not be an issue.
How far are you into the process when you get this message? Is the OS loaded, but it's stalling at the point of application restore?
I would try two things:
- Uninstall DM and the OS from your PC, reinstall them, and try again.
- If that fails, use BBSAK to wipe the device and then try running Loader.exe again
...don't want to sneek in, but what you also could try, if what toytooii is suggesting does not help is to take the battery out of your berry, then connect it to the PC and then boot the berry - maybe this helps to get it connected?
Yes, I plugged my BB in and DM immediately recogized the PIN. Is there any way around this password? Ryan has NOT put any passwords on his device. I'm not sure it has been unbricked to be honest as I can't get the phone to turn on whatsoever.

He said that he has been noticing a couple of issues lately, most notably he plugged his bb in to charge in the night before last and when he woke up the battery was drained and the low battery light was flashing.

Could most certainly be a battery issue! Do you have another battery you can use??? Give it a try if possible!
PS - what OS are you intending to load on his Storm1? .419???
Please be aware that if he routinely uses Speed Dial, it does not function properly from the Dial Pad. This is a bug I personally encountered and has been reported by numerous others. It forced me back to .328.
Hopefully, a fresh battery (doesn't your Storm2 have the same battery you can try?) will get you through this issue.
