    USB connection betwen MAC and BB

    Advertisement



    I'm an old MAC user, but a new BB user.
    I have been on a BB 8700 for a month or so, but have just moved to a Peal - 8310.
    I am pulling my hair out trying to connect my pearl to my Mac. The USB cable does not connect the two. I get a message on my phone saying there is insufficient power - I've tried blue toothing, but that also doesn't work.
    If anyone has detailed instructions on how to make this problem go away, I'd really appreciate that!

    thanks
    Sarah

    Yeah experienced that as well. But when I installed PocketMac (though is doesn't really sync my Curve..too bad)..that "insufficient power' problem no longer exist. This might not really helps but it doesn't hurt to try. Good luck

    That's the thing. Wonder why RIM doesn't do something about that??

    what version of os x are you running?
    -------
    The insufficient power error happens when the pearl driver is not installed.

    It should come with pocketmac, I'm not sure about leopard though, I have yet to upgrade my OS yet. Try redownloading pocketmac. It may be a problem with leopard too, I know there are many bugs that still need to be worked out, just like there are with any new OS release.
