8700 and Parallels. See the device, won't sync it.

So this isn't a problem with Parallels not seeing the device, but rather that while DM will see the blackberry just fine, it will not sync with it for anything.
Any type of procedure that requires that the DM software communicate with the 8700 results in the DM software locking up. I've left it running (saying that it's not responding) for 10 minutes and nothing changed. The CPU wasn't doing anything the entire time either, so it's not like it was chugging through something and I cut it off.
Any suggestions? I'm using the latest version of DM (4.1 SP1) and the latest public paralles build (RC3).
I tried all of the suggestions on Parallel's and Blackberry forums to get my BB to synch with Parallels. Finally I found the perfect solution and it worked immediately - dump Parallels, load FUSION as your VM program and everything works without any fancy tricks or computer expertise. It's also a much better program all around and it's free. What a shame that this annoying problem couldn't be fixed by Parallels after so many months of complaining by its customers
Parallels is a GREAT program but I also had the same BB sync issues that everyone else was seeing. I switched to Fusion and my issues went away. There are some things I miss from Parallels but in the end this issue forced me to make the change. Now I'm enjoying Fusion just about as much as I was enjoying Parallels and downloading new images for other OS's (under Fusion) is much faster then the lame Torrent methods that are available for Parallels.
