    What happens when you plug your phone in? Are you using a USB hub? Have you tried a different USB cable? Did you try restarting your computer?

    If you get the clock, you are in Sleep Mode which suggests that power is flowing from the PC and the drivers are installed properly (because if you connect improperly you get a message on your screen saying that either the USB port is not sufficiently powered or your USB drivers are not installed).

    What exactly are you trying to do? Desktop Manager?

    If you want to move stuff off the SD card, then make sure you have Mass Storage Mode enabled.. it's somewhere in options, I forget exactly where.. the default is to ask when you plugin in BB... should get a popup on BB that asks if you want Mass Storage Mode.. click Yes if you see it. If you don't see it and have Mass Storage Mode enabled, then you might have a driver problem.

    Does Desktop Manager show your Blackberry PIN in the bottom when you connect by data cable?

    Have you ever been able to connect it with WIN7 on there?

    Try launching DM and while the Berry is connected do a battery pull and wait 30 seconds before re inserting the battery and see if it recognizes then.

    Open DM, click on Help in the upper right, then click About. It should tell you what version you are running.

    I believe you have to use DM 5.0 or better for the PC to recognize your tour. You can download directly from blackberry.com, under Desktop Software. You should see it on the left hand column once you are on the site.

    Try using DM 4.7. Some people were having issues with 5.0. Be sure to uninstall 5.0 or whatever you currently have installed, reboot your computer, then install 4.7.

    You shouldn't have to as they should be installed with DM.
