Just because the phone is charging doesn't mean the cable's ok - there are separate contacts for data. Have you installed your Blackberry Desktop Manager before plugging in the phone? Does the PC make any sign of you having plugged it in - hourglass, sound etc? If not then try a different USB port & then try a different cable.

I have a Blackberry (9700); and I suspect "johnr" has one also...

Install the appropriate desktop manager for Blackberry; then see if it shows up? Current/latest version of desktop manager is 5.1.

I can't remember now if I connected the 9700 via the usb cable without desktop manager installed or not. So can't say it will or won't be "found" that way. But once desktop manager is active.. then it (the phone) ought be there.
