    How are you trying to transfer? Bluetooth, USB?

    Also remember that PocketMac is not the same as DM. i.e-- Pocketmac does not have a media exchange program with the software.

    Get a Media card>enable mass storage> make the pics and music be stored on the media card> when you hook up your BB to the mac, be sure you tell the BB to allow your mac to see the media card> the media card should appear under your hard drive icon>double click on the "No Name" drive> then drag and drop both ways.

    hope that helps

    ok well here is the link for blackberry support for Mac (PocketMac) : https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22

    choose "PocketMac 4.xxx b" > enter info and download

    PM me for help if you need help

    **I cant seem to figure out BT support for Pocket Mac yet so if this is a must, and you have a Intel Mac, i would dual boot to windows.
