Hey guys. I have installed pocket mac on my macbook pro, but it will not sync with my storm. I have installed the program with the update several times with the assistance of other posts, but nothing seems to work. When I open the program, it doesn't recognize that I have my phone hooked up. Yet, I'm able to access the folders on my phone from the finder. When I try to sync it gives me an error message saying "Unable to connect to BlackBerry (error 1); skipping." Does anyone know anything on how to fix this? I've been going at this for hours and am ready for something to work. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have tried for months to get this to work. Downloaded all the software from all the sites suggested. I have a older mac g5 and it runs on OS 10.4.11. Alot of the software offered only works with OS 10.5 or higher. I even had numerous calls in with RIM. Still nothing worked.
till, I noticed recently that my GPS from my car has a smartcard slot. Hmmm,...? I picked up a sandisk card adapter at walmart for 4 bucks. Slid in the little sandisk card from my phone. 8gig. and put it in my GPS (Garmin) and plugged the usb cable into it and my mac. Shortly after that, the blackberry drive popped up on my MAC and I was able to download everything. itunes, photos, all of it.
I know this sound a little tedious,but, I am happy and HOORAY!,..success, it did what I needed.
Just an option for those who still can't get their stuff onto the Storm.
