I just bought my Storm Sat and have been trying to sync for days. I have a IBOOK G4 running the latest TIGER OS. I read all you guys post and I think it all helped a lot. Im a new BB user so it took me awhile to figure the phone. Ok, so anyway to the good stuff. As mentioned I followed some of the other threads, installing Pocket Mac and the updated driver. Uninstalling and re-installing. Taking the battery out and all that. None of that worked for me either like some of you. Keep getting the error message. So, I broke down and bought Missing Sync. Still wouldn't work. So, tonight I uninstalled PocketMac and deleted all files associated with off my Mac. Then I brought Missing Sync up on my Mac. On your Storm go to Options then Memory. Click on Mass Storage Mode Support select On. Then when you see Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode I selected Prompt or you could do Yes. Save Changes. Then go to Missing Sync just set what your preferences are for sync and click Sync. Boom- you are good to go.
This is what I did. It sync my Itunes and IPhoto and everything else. So, now Im at piece. Hope this will help someone. To everyone else thanks for your ideas cause it did help me with my dilemma, so I guess I will keep the Storm.

I keep getting this message in the sync log.
The Music plugin will be skipped. The device must support external memory cards, and the card must be mounted, to sync music.
The memory card that comes with it not enough?

i managed to get both music and pictures onto my storm from my macbook, and from my storm to my macbook.
i had to go into options on the storm, then memory, then to "prompt" for auto enable mass storage mode when connected.
then i disconnected and re-connected the usb with pocketmac open on my macbook and it started synching. at first it synched everything BUT my music and photos. then i noticed when i plugged the usb back into my storm once more, two seperate blackberry harddrives appeared on my desktop, Blackberry1 and Blackberry2. I went into Blackberry1, then to the folder "home", then to the folder "user", then to the folders "music" and "photos" and just clicked and dragged music from my itunes library and photo library into those folders. then I tested it to make sure it worked. sounds great on the storm! it has to be done into the folders on Blackberry1 though, i tried it with Blackberry2 and even though it has the same folder names, when i tried to play the music i had dragged and dropped said it was an incompatible format. it's not the format, it's just the wrong drive.
hope this helps someone out, it worked for me!

I use doubletwist, a free media syncing/transfering application. dt moves transfers movies, videos, music and photos to your blackberry taking care of any formatg conversions that may be necessary. even iTunes contenet (non-DRM) can be copied ot your device.
you can drag and drop youtube videos directly to your computer and then your BB.
send media toyour friends easily and without needed to zip up and try and email or without need of an FTP program.
dT works with your BB and palm and PSP and nokia and pretty much any mobile device you may have.
Free, too. check it out.

I have the latest version of blackberry desktop and my storm has been updated. I did not have any trouble initially but now with updates for the blackberry desktop manager installed I can not sync my blackberry with my mac. Drives me crazy have spent most of the day trying and trying and trying, speaking with technical support to now avail. What the heck, how frustrating, a waste to time. Wasted the day! Any suggestions?
