So I've got an issue, and I know I'm not the first to encounter it, but as far as I can tell, there's no good solution anywhere online.
I know there's been general connectivity problems between the Q10 and Link -- I used to have them on my old laptop, but it would always connect after some finagiling.
I bought a Mac a few months back. I connected by Q10 and backed up my data, transfers some pictures, etc.
But all of a sudden, a few months back, I simply couldn't connect via USB. Bluetooth transfers worked just fine, USB connections sort-of worked (in that I can transfer some data, sometimes, but it's always very touch-and-go.) But if I plug it in via USB, it's a no-go.
I can see the Blackberry in my Finder, but it's only via wi-fi. And my Mac won't let me connect to see the files.
Here's what I've tried:
It *sounds* like the easy solution is to backup my BB, format the whole thing, and restore it. But there's the trick -- I can't format it on my Mac, and transfering over all the data from another machine onto here, and hoping it all works out sounds like a risky endeavor.
So I'm basically stuck. I want to be able to pull off a lot of app data onto my laptop, and I just can't do that over wifi.
I'm at the point where I think I've tried *everything.* Any suggestions would be fantastically appreciated. I've always been more of a PC guy, so it could be that I'm missing something elemtary on my Mac. (For what it's worth: my iPad connects just fine.)
