    Windows 7 Driver for Blackberry Curve 8330


    Alright.. so I've been searching the net looking for a solution for quite some time now, and everything I have found has not worked as of yet (or has not been the exact same problem)...

    I plug in my blackberry 8330 into a USB port on my laptop (running Win7 32-bit), and it pops up saying device not installed correctly. Under Device Manager, there's a yellow exclamation point next to:
    Unknown Device (listed under the category Universal Serial Bus controllers).

    I have tried:
    Installed Blackberry USB and Modem drivers
    Installed Desktop Manager Software
    Rebooting computer (twice)
    Searching google (for at least 2 hours)
    Ran Desktop Manager in compatibility mode for Vista
    Unplugged/reconnected blackberry phone several times
    Uninstalled/Reinstalling driver
    Tried updating driver from Windows Update Site
    Tried manually searching for driver on computer (I've selected the system32 folder to search through and it comes up saying:
    Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date.
    Unknown Device
    )

    If this helps, under Device Manager under the category for Ports (COM & LPT), there are 2 items listed:
    RIM Virtual Serial Port v2 (COM3)
    RIM Virtual Serial Port v2 (COM4)

    Not sure what other info you guys need... but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried downloading and installing the latest version of the Blackberry Desktop Software ?

    Yeah... Turned out the usb cable sucked... Was using one from a laptop accessory kit, and I guess the usb cable wasn't good enough to detect blackberry. Broke down and went to staples and purchased usb cable which worked great... Was driving from ny on way to fl (in nj now) so wanted to use blackberry as modem...

    Thanks for reply
