I had that same issue with Parallels, but others I have heard from had no issues. I ended up switch to VMWare Fusion as has so much better USB support. I would suggest dumping Parallels and switching to VMWare Fusion.

I've also had better success using VMWare over Parallels when using Desktop Manager under Windows in a virtual machine.

Question BB Bold synch problems on Mac running Parallels

After six hours with AT&T techy today, and replacing my BB Bold (thinking it was a hardware issue), I am still unable to synch the BB to Outlook 2007 on the Windows side of a MacBook Pro running parallels. The BB keeps getting disconnected. I disabled all virus software and installed three versions of the BB software, but nothing resolved the problem.

I have to use Outlook 2007 to keep up with the rest of the office guys on PCs since we synch our Outlooks on the network.

I love the Bold, but if anyone has an iphone and can synch through Parallels to Outlook 2007, I would be tempted to replace my BB Bold (with much sadness).

Can anyone suggest a solution?

Thanks

Parallels, syncs just fine with my MacBook running Outlook 2007 using both Windows Vista and Windows XP.

What is the problem?

Do not waste your money on VMWARE, Parallels is just fine.
