Originally I was trying to set up a Blackberry Pearl 8130 as my internet access. Plans changed and just using wi-fi now. I was trying to use this guide to set the Blackberry up http://wiki.colar.net/tethering_with_blackberry_pearl_on_linux. I never got it working but all those changes are still on my machine. Now, the problem occurs when I try to use the blackberry as a storage device moving music, etc... on and of of it. As soon as I try to copy/paste or whatever my blackberry does a hard restart(the one it does when you remove the battery, noy just trn off/on). Any help would be appreciated.

Did the usb connection to the blackberry work correctly before you attempted to set up a wireless link??

What version of USB is the port on your computer you are using?


lshw | grep usb

look for capabilities
