Options -> Media Card -> Mass Storage Support Mode = On

It should show up now as a flash drive. Just place the videos/music/pictures in their corresponding folders and you're good to go.

Most likely, since that is the case with the Pearl.

I believe you do since the curve only has i believe 12mb of internal storage. Also bluetooth transfer is possible, go into media>pictures or music> then press the blackberry button and select receive using bluetooth> then send the file via bluetooth...

I tried PocketMac a while, as it was free/donation, but never got consistant syncs and some duplicates. The included notes program never synced.
Paid for Missing Sync and it works great with the Pearl. To sync music, you enable mass storage mode when prompted- and sync selected playlists right from iTunes. I have a 4GB sandisk card about half full.

Hi

I have a macbook pro and a pearl. I have never had a problem syncing apples mail, ical etc. Until now. The phone powers off when the program goes to sync the cal. I have reinstalled the software and bought a new phone. Both have not fixed the problem.

Any answers?

Thanks Marc

can you email the answer to me?

I sync with a USB cable, not Bluetooth.
