Default Sync never completes, PocketMac <--> 8830

Please Login to Remove!


Brand new Blackberry user in trouble already.

I installed PocketMac on my MacBook and the first time through I was able to successfully sync my address book with the 8830 the first time. I was also able to push iTunes music and iPhoto files to the dvide. But now, anytime I try to sync the address book, the blue progress bar stretches almost all the way to the right and just hangs there and the status line below says "Blackberry - Synchronizing Data". Eventually I cancel the sync (I've let it run for over 30 minutes on one occasion) and what I see is that nothing changed on the Blackberry.

I can still push music and photos just fine, so long as I don't try to sync the address book at the same time and I haven't tried syncing th calendar yet.

Any ideas?
