8830 sync w/ Outlook / Parallels on iMac
Apple tells me that it should work with no issues. However, I'm unable to get the Blackberry Desktop Manager / Windows XP Pro to recognize my Blackberry. I get errors indicating that the USB port hasn't got sufficient power.
Has anybody encountered this? I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Blackberry Desktop Manager. I have unplugged my 8830 and plugged it back in. I have downloaded the USB drivers from Blackberry. Nothing has worked so far.
Any help is much appreciated.
Werid it has worked for me when I had my MacBook Pro. You try messing with the USB settings in Parallels?
I have done just about everything. I'm going to give an Apple consultant a try before returning the entire works and eating some serious services (installations) fees.
Try a different cable, sometimes it works out good. I've had the problem before under you settings and changing the cable made the trick. Also make sure your not connecting it via a USB HUB that can make a big difference.
Make sure you have the Blackberry software for your device installed to Windows Xp along with the Blackberry desktop manager.
The error you are receiving with the insufficient power, is due to a lack of drivers to charge your blackberry device. You can verify this by looking in the Windows XP device manager, and if you see a USB Mass storage device, but no Blackberry device, you are for sure missing the driver. If you do see the Blackberry device listed under USB devices, then you need to install the Parallels driver utility. The Parallels driver utility add additional WinXP functions to your virtual machine, and also includes additional drivers for Windows to recognize your Mac hardware.
I have a MacBook pro running Parallels and Windows XP, VMWare Fusion, also running Widnows Server 2003. All 3 OSes are fully functional with my Blackberry device.
