    Hello,

    Anyone has succesfully synchonized a blueberry 7280 handheld with the new beta?. I had not been able to. It still shows the message that says:

    USB device you are trying to connect to the virtual machine is being used by another process. Wait 5-10 seconds, then try to connect the device again. If this does not help, find the application that blocked up the device and disconnect it manually.

    i do that, and the message appears again, always...

    saludos.

    blueberry?

    Well, I got the BlackBerrry to work connected via USB. I had to install an older version of BB desktop manager to see it though. Set the USB in Parallels to auto-connect. Good luck.

    You need to have running the same version Desktop Manager software as is on the BlackBerry device. If the BlackBerry is running 4.0 OS software, you will need to install Desktop Manager 4.0
    If the BlackBerry is running 41. OS software, you will need to install Desktop Manager 4.1 etc.

    If you keep receiving that error from Parallels, make sure there are no application running on Windows that would tie up a port, such as Microsoft ActiveSync, HotSync, etc. I am currently experiencing this problem with an 8700, and am researching it... will post reply if solved.

    I didn't have any success with my BlackBerry Pearl neither no matter if I set the USB to be auto connect or not ... when I plug my blackberry with Parallels already in XP, Parallel will basically freeze and I have to force quit it. Anyone has any work around?

    I also have a Blackberry 8700 from T-Mobile. I am using the latest version Desktop Manager 4.1.1.12 and OS 4.1.0.346.

    I find the new Beta 3150 is more flaky that the prior versions. The Desktop Manager can connect to the Blackberry when I plug it in. But it loses its connection when I try to perform a backup. The 8700 returns to a disconnected state - you can use it to read email etc. But XP Blackberry Device Manager will still say its connected.

    Flaky.

    Solution

    Search the threads for this thread title:

    Possibly a clean solution for "USB device in use" problem

    It worked for me, now I don't receive the "5-10 seconds error when I plug in the 8700"
