Re: Pocketmac 4.1 does not USB sync with blackberry 8300 - someone please help

as stated previously, i've already done that. i was asking if there was some special firmware that was found outside of that usual software updater.

 

thanks!

Apple pushed the firmware update last night.  I suggest you go the Apple.com and look under support.

 

My device syncs in under 2 minutes.  I must not have much data....:womanvery-happy:

Re: Pocketmac 4.1 does not USB sync with blackberry 8300 - someone please help

per this page: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1237

i have the latest firmware updates.

 

this is what my system profiler has:

Boot ROM Version: MBP51.0074.B01

  SMC Version: 1.33f8 

 

it reflects the updates i did on Dec 10 when those 2 were sent out.

maybe your software updater just caught it last night since they usually check in 7 days cycles.

 

just a guess.

The firmware update comes through "Software Update" in System Preferences.  In fact, there have been two firmware updates there in the past week.

Be sure to pay attention to the instructions when you reboot.  For firmware it goes through a special reboot and you mustn't interfere with it once it starts (also, the howl your MacBook emits during this process is normal).

Also, I just noticed today that I can now browse files on my Blackberry via USB, which I wasn't able to last week.  I even used iPhoto to import photos from my Blackberry.

Re: Pocketmac 4.1 does not USB sync with blackberry 8300 - someone please help

I found a bug on when syncing the calanader. If you have a recurring event, and go ahead sync it to the BB, it will have on both devicess(perfect). Now if you go ahead and delete only a single series from an upcoming recurring event on your mac and then sync it, the BB will not pick it up. Has anyone seen this issue, or knows how to address it please let me know, thank you! this is with the new unibody and a BB 8100 older f/w.

Re: Pocketmac 4.1 does not USB sync with blackberry 8300 - someone please help

After lots of hassle like everybody else, I've gotten by Storm to reliably sync contacts with my iMac 24 running the latest Leopard. What did the trick was a suggestion (contradicted elsewhere) to set my BlackBerry this way...

 

Options, then Memory, Set the following options
  -  Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) = Off.
  - Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected =  Yes 
                     (or Prompt)

  - Save the change

 

I couldn't get syncing to complete with MTP ON.

 

Hope this helps the continuing struggle.

Love, Somraj

Re: Pocketmac 4.1 does not USB sync with blackberry 8300 - someone please help

I am trying to post a comment about the inability to get a sync with a blackberry and a Mac. I find it amazing that I loose phone numbers and that there is no way to contact blackberry directly. Do you have any idea how to post a general comment?
