Storm Drives not mounting on Vista PC
After my storm bricked and was replaced by Verizon, I cant see my device memory or my memory card from my storm on my vista pc. I had no problems with this on my original phone. I called Verizon who patched me in with Rim to troubleshoot. After an hour, they decided to send me a new phone. I updated my OS to 188.8.131.52 Restored my data and and reinstalled my apps.(should have tested first)
Guess what, yes, I still cant see the drives. I should have tested it before going thru all that effort. I have removed desktop manager and installed the latest 5.x from verizon. Still no luck. I hooked my sons storm up and I can see the drives. With my phone hooked up to his pc, running DM 4.x, I cant see the drives. It must be something I restored from the old backup. I cant figure out what. I dont want to wipe and reinstall again.
Memory settings are media card support on, mtp on, mass storage mode on, auto enable mass storage yes.
DM sees the memory and the media card both. Suggestions?
Vista Not Seeing Drive
Try downloading the latest USB drivers (Search Rim's Website for newest Drivers), then make sure you software is set to run as administrator! Yes you will need to look at your drivers!
I had a similar issue when Beta Testing Windows 7!
I had the exact same problem. Phone bricked, Verizon replaced, no more phone in Windows Explorer. I did some research and found a post with a fix from last year.
The url for the post is - Mass Storage issues? (Here's the fix) - Discussed in BlackBerry Multimedia forum - PinStack.com - Smartphone Professionals Alliance.. There's a file attached called BB storage Activation new.rar. You must unzip it (I used pkunzip, which is free), run the batch file and you're done. Everything has been fine with mine since.
My first post. Great site. Hope they allow the url and link.
Oops, I see the url was converted to a link. Even better. Try it and run the batch file after unzipping.
For me, it was frustrating because Roxio is so slow for transferring pictures and music. This put a big smile on my face. I hope it works for you.
I think this may have something to do with the storage activation. When I was having a similar issue before, but I could not see the device memory only my sd card and I came across this file. It did not help my issue, but resolved other issue EU's were having with their storage and not showing. The file is to big to upload on here, but if you google BBStorageActivation you should get several hits and location of where the file is. Sorry don't have the URL either I am at work right now and get a big ACCESS DENIED when trying to load pages. Hope this helps!
Thank you for the post and welcome to BlackberryOS
