Default Pocketmac & .ipd files...What am I missing?

Please Login to Remove!

Long story short...
If I have a backup file on my computer, with the .ipd extension....and let's say that I got it there using the PC based blackberry tools which is no longer an option...I have to assume that with Pocketmac, I can simply load the .idp file and then sync it with my blackberry. Right? I mean this is the point of backing up files right?

If that's the case, then how would I go about doing this? What's the point in backing up a file if you can't do anything with it?....how do I get it to import the already saved .ipd file?

I happen to have Paralells and have installed the PC version of the Blackberry tools on there, but it gets no further than saying that it's trying to connect to JVM whatever that is, and just hangs....so Pocketmac is my last hope here. I am begging for help. BEGGING.

Best option is to find a PC.

I don't see why it wouldn't work on parellels. But your best bet is to copy it to ur mem card or flash drive, find a PC, and then install it from it

I gave up on Pocketmac. I just backup using isync with google and it works great. I also have my old PC I use as well.

Think I'm going to get a version of Vista (UGH) and insatll on my macbook pro soley to use the PC ONLY version of the BB software.

Why does RIM hate us?
