    USB Interference

    Greetings all:

    I have a problem with my Blackberry interfering with my USB devices, more often than not an incoming call, text message or E-Mail, will cause my USB devices to stop functioning. Any idea why this is happening?

    Is your phone hooked up using USB or is it just next to the wires?

    I had a problem with onboard usb interfering with my onboard nic..

    Plugged in a PCI NIC far away from the usb...all fixed.

    Maybe you need a PCI usb..seperate card for your Blackberry or other devices...I am assuming here the Blackberry is using USB.

    Never really looked further into how to fix the issue...just came up with a work around.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the response. I haven't been on in a while.

    To answer both your responses I am experiencing this effect both when I have my BB connected to my PC box and just when it is sitting anywhere near it, it usually starts by disabling my mouse. I do here interference through the speakers as a call or e-mail comes through then the sound effect of the PC telling me I have unplugged the device in question.

    Hi Nic~

    Just one question:

    What happens if you take your crapberry near to another computer system?

    What I am suggesting is that we try to establish whether it is your static system or the mobile device that is the culprit, then take it from there?

    Heya Johnno.

    I am not sure I will run a test when I get home. Both on my laptop and my other DT. Details to follow.

    RF noise

    Although I don't have one anymore (AA - crackberry meetings took care of that), everyone I know currently with one and myself, just got used to hearing occassional bursts of static on any PC speaker the 'berry was in the same room with. That leads me to believe the RF energy those things are putting out is pretty high -- I'm thinking that's gotta be the cause...

    Found a good paper on BlackBerry EMI: http://www.blackberry.com/solutions/...hite_Paper.pdf

    Cheers!

    the nihilish speak is REALLY kicking in today :P

    and Galdron,
    have you tried a distance test on said BB :?
    as in, it is acceptable, no hang ups when it is over 6' away

    or does it just cause havoc wheneverit is on in the same house as the PC ?

    It is causing interference in my whole house (condo) which is 1400 square feet.

    All but to my Mac.
