I am not sure as to what I've done. but here it goes...

Until now when-ever I plug-in my BlackBerry to my PC a dialog used to appear on my screen giving me a series of options that I can utilize to access my MicroSD memory card within my BlackBerry... Options such as opening a picture editor, browsing the MicroSD card or simply doing nothing!

Now it seems that Ubuntu is not aware that a memory card has been connected!

I am pissing in the wind here, but here goes... This only happens when I connect my BlackBerry to my machine not when the memory card is taken out of my BlackBerry and connected to my PC through the use of a Flash Adapter!

For some reason i think Ubuntu is accessing my BlackBerry incorrectly!

ANY help would be greatly appreciated...Thank you

p.s. Yes the BlackBerry is receiving power and IS charging while connected to my PC...
:/

:/Maybe the setting on your Blackberry allowing it to interface as a separate drive was reset? Under "Options" (the wrench thingy), go to Memory and check the settings. They should be "On", "None", "On", "On", "Yes".

Thank you for your response, but that didn't seem to solve the problem...

I may have inadvertently changed how Ubuntu accesses the phone by trying to create a USB modem connection!

Is there a way to "reset" the USB settings within Ubuntu so that devices are returned to a "default" connection?

I agree with that other dude, it sounds like a bastardberry setting gone wrong, not an ubuntu one.
