Default Can't use mass storage on Mac

Please Login to Remove!

When I plug my BB into my Mac it doesn't appear as a mass storage device. I can sync etc. with Desktop manager but I can't use it for storing files.

It's a pain cos I want to transfer files off my BlackBerry.
Any ideas?

I have the same problem, except on a PC.

Is Mass Storage turned on? Options > Media Card > Media Card Support = ON; Mass Storage Mode Support = ON

And I am not sure about Mac. I am guessing it needs those settings on your handheld as does the PC version.
