    Trouble Bluetoothing files from Mac to Pearl.

    Advertisement



    So I was trying to transfer some files from my MacBook Pro to my Pearl, and the Mac says, "Device does not have the necessary services".

    I'm trying to transfer jpegs I took with my old camera phone and small MP3s (for ringtones).

    I can transfer similar files from my Pearl to my Mac, but not the other way around.

    Any ideas why this might be happening?

    a) Have you enabled disk use in your settings? It is under Options:Advanced:Media Card

    As far as a guide to get it to work on your Mac, here it is:

    1) Plug the USB cable into the phone and Mac.
    2) As all things tend to work on Macs, It will pop up on the desktop.

    Also note, you will receive an error message on your BB regarding USB power...etc... This RIMs backwards way of saying that you don't have the proper driver installed on your computer.

    i have read various articles about the 8100 and most of them are saying that as far as the bluetooth is concerned you might have to wait until pocketmac 4.0 is released but the usb cable works fine. This is from what i understand and i have been able to find. If there are other 8100 users out there that use mac i would like to know your thoughts on this as well.

    Do we have to wait for pocketmac 4.0? Or has someone figured out a work around?

    Are the 8100's the only ones that support file send via bluetooth? At the moment, I have an automator workflow to crop pics and e-mail them to my 7130c, but a bluetooth transfer would work sooooo much better.

    I had no probs sending files to my 8100 on my powerbook (haven't tried it on my g4 ibook yet).
    After making my Pearl a trusted device, under BT, I sent file. I got prompted to save to card by default (I chose yes). Don't try to do this under BT services. Just do a straight send to phone.

    Maybe that's my problem. You saved to your memory card. I don't have a memory card yet. I was trying to transfer the files to the internal memory. Maybe it doesn't work that way. Anybody successfully bluetoothed a file from Mac to internal memory?

    I have sent files to the internal memory. I sent some mp3 ringtones. If you go to your media folder and hit menu then "receive using bluetooth" you can receive stuff on the BB you will get an error on the mac but the transfer should be fine. I know for sure you can send mp3 tones this way and fairly certain about the pictures.

    Any chance you could share that Automator workflow with the people? I'd love to use that to put some nicer pix on my 7130c.

    Re: Trouble Bluetoothing files from Mac to Pearl.

    Can do. Will post a zip with a few workflows. From what I am thinking:

    - one to scale, crop, and email a file
    - one to scale and crop a file, saving a copy to the desktop.

    Can you think of anymore useful ones?

    Posted them. Not sure I like the category, but it was the lesser of all available evils.

    For some reason I'm having trouble getting to them. Can you email them to me at marc AT baizman.net? Thanks!
