Have a 8130 Peril nothing the PC will not open pictures from the BlackBerry I have tried everything.
I don't know about the Pearl, but on the storm you have to make sure "Mass Storage Mode Support" is on by going to>options>memory>Mass Storage Mode Support set to on>go back>Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected to yes. This is assuming you have already installed the LATEST version of BB Desktop manager that has the drivers you need for your computer to see your phone if it doesn't already.
