BDM for MAC reverse sync

I have just downloaded the new BDM for MAC and want to sync my Bold with the MAC. All my information is on the phone, which I update with all new information for calendar, contact, memos, etc. The BDM for MAC does not appear to sync from the phone to the MAC, over riding the MAC, only from the computer to the phone, over riding the phone info.  HELP!

Re: BDM for MAC reverse sync

When you synced for the first time, there should have been a popup asking you to "Replace device data" or "Merge data".

 

Do you remember which one you chose?

Re: BDM for MAC reverse sync

I used "replace device data' as the "merge data" would duplicate all info from the computer into the phone, which several people have commented on as a problem.  the command needed is "replace computer data" or "over ride computer data". I had a palm treo before this and their syncing program worked fine with the MAC, and was easier and more intuitive. thanks for any help you can give!
