    Blackberry not detected

    I am trying to connect my blackberry to my Ubuntu computer via USB. It seems the computer is aware that I have plugged in the device. When I run dmesg I saw the following messages:

    [10732.484149] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
    [10732.618290] usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    [10732.625770] scsi5 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
    [10732.626045] usb-storage: device found at 5
    [10732.626050] usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
    [10732.836712] usb 2-1: usbfs: interface 1 claimed by usb-storage while 'bcharge' sets config #1
    [10733.948158] usb 2-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
    But even though there are no obvious errors here, a link to the device is nowhere to be found. Any hints?

    Re: Blackberry not detected

    Hey, i have the same problem...

    I can back up my Blackberry using "barrybackup" no problem, my laptop will detect it...

    The only problem is, it wont detect my BB as a storage device.

    Because of this, i cant transfer any pictures or MP3`s...

    Well, i hope someone have a solution for this issue...

    My Blackberry 8220 is doing the same thing, and I think it started when I upgraded my distribution to lucid. I plug in the USB cable, but no "drive" appears on the desktop where I expect it to appear as an icon.

    I'm in the same boat with my 9530. I can back mine up with Barry as well but I'm unable to access it as a storage device. I used to all the time in 9.10. This is absolutely a problem that has come up with the new distro. If I don't see a solution soon, I'll have to go back to 9.1. I'm getting pretty frustrated.

    Nearly 250 views and not one suggestion. This isn't looking good. I'm going to file a bug report and see what comes of it.

    You should hear what happens to my Blackberry Storm when I plug it up to my computer.... It completely reboots the phone.... continuously...... without end.

    I haven't taken any care to fix it because I really have no use for plugging my bb into linux, can't do a reliable firmware update like that, and my syncing is all wireless.

    Re: Blackberry not detected

    I think bcharge from barry is the problem here

    Code:
    [10732.836712] usb 2-1: usbfs: interface 1 claimed by usb-storage while 'bcharge' sets config #1
    [10733.948158] usb 2-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
    Do you use 0.15 from Lucid repos? I had the same problem with this version.

    I removed it

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove barrybackup-gui opensync-plugin-barry barry-util libbarry0 libbarry-dev
    and installed Barry 0.17.1 for Ubuntu 10.04 with libbarry0, barry-util, barrybackup-gui, libbarry-dev and opensync-plugin-barry_0.17-1.

    It works like a charme.

    I think the barry-util tool is a command line tool??? What about the barrybackup-gui? Is that a command line tool as well??

    The command
    Code:
    barrybackup
    launches a GUI (that doesn’t appear anywhere in my Applications menu) that lets you back up your device databases. See also http://thelinuxexperiment.com/tag/barrybackup/
