MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) Will charge but not recognize my BB

I got a used BlackBerry Torch 9800 off of craigslist the other day and I plugged it into my MacBook to put some music onto my memory card, if prompted me if I wanted to charge, use mass storage, or sync. I decided I would wait until this morning to sync my phone and put music on it. I plug my BlackBerry in to my MacBook now but it doesn't prompt me for a choice. I downloaded Desktop Manager for Mac but it won't even recognize it when I try to set it up.


I downloaded the drivers onto my Desktop PC ad it works just fine, but I don't know what the problem in for my Mac.
