    8330 and Mac

    Advertisement



    NO SYNC with music or pix from Pearl to Mac...
    Tried both Pocket Mac and Missing Sync. Why are BB and Verizon selling 8130 as fully-featured when you cannot use music or pic function with a mac??
    Does anyone know if the sync prob is fixed with an 8330 Curve and a mac (newest Leopard)?
    Do I have to give up on using BB with a mac at all?!

    With a mac you have to have a media card to do music or video....and you simply turn on mass storage mode and your mac will recognize it as an external drive and you can then drag and drop items to your blackberry

    You can but it is slow.
    Of all the things I lost, I miss my mind the most.

    You may need to install the new drivers available at the below link.

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22

    Once at the link choose pocketmac from the list and hit next.

    You will then see an option for driver update.

    I still can't get my 8330 to sync with my MBP using PocketMac. I had to boot up Windoze and install my contacts and calendar that way. (Bleck...)

    Doesn't work, even with new USB driver

    I hooked up my new Curve, installed PocketMac for BB, installed the new USB driver, all like it said in their instructions. When I click on SYNC, it goes to .Mac, does a sync, goes to my BB, does a sync, and then when it's done there's nothing on the BB.

    Huh?

    I cross-graded to the BB version of Missing Sync and now things seem to be working... But it cost me $20! Anyone have a solution??

    There was a new version of pocketmac that was released about a month or two ago. It add supports for newer bb phones, like 8330.

    Pocketmac crashes and actually locks up my Mac. I just insttalled the BB DM and Media Manager on XP in VMWare on my Mac, shared my iTunes folder on the Mac, then mapped a drive in windows to my Mac's itunes folder, and sync itunes that way. Works great; though I don't sync email or anything besides music, as I have a hosted BES/Exchange so I don't need to.
