Default bb pearl 8110 syncing on a mac

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

I'm having some issues getting a bb pearl 8110 syncing on a mac. It seems like the bb is just not communicating with pocketmac.

details:
- mac os v10.4.11
- pocketmac 4.0.20b
- Old blackberry (8700) connects fine. (was replaced after being dropped, plastic casing is smashed in on 3 corners, still syncs tho)
- I'm using the same usb cable for the new bb. (tried a diff cable too)
- New bb does mount so i can access data on the bb.
- Tried setting up a bluetooth connection between the mac & bb, I can transfer the address book, but wont connect in pocketmac. (including fiddling with bluetooth port settings)
- I tried uninstalled and removed all traces of pocketmac, and reinstalled, no change.
- tried a wipe of the bb same issue.
- bb works fine on my fiancé's pc laptop
- I tried completely disabling mass storage mode. still no sync.

Any Thoughts, suggestions so that i can get this thing to sync?

moving to mac users corner. i think you might find help a bit quicker there.

moved over to missing sync - all working now. shame i had to pay for it, but suppose its cheaper than a copy of windows.

I'm having the same problem with my 8130. Did all the above tests as Darkaza did. My sisters 8100 works perfectly fine with PocketMac however my 8130 does not detect. Don't know whether to buy Missing Sync as mentioned on the forums that 8130 is not supported?
