Help Blackberry and Mac using XP
 
All,

I cannot seem to get my blackberry pearl working using parallels xp.

It does not pick up the USB..

Is there any drivers out there that are needed for this?

Cheers

Use Fusion instead of Parallels, works like a charm. Check out this thread.

Fusion
 
I agree about FUSION being so much better. 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.

I'm going to toss my Thumbs Up on using fusion as well. I could get very good connection using Parallels HOWEVER as soon as I tried to Sync it would freeze up on the reading device screen. I moved to fusion and haven't had a problem since.

Dave; Did you try hitting the small blue USB button on the Parallels window while Windows is running? You can see it when you don't have the program maximized. It shows you what Parallels thinks is connected to your mac via USB. Your BB should be listed. When you click on BB it's like installing it to Windows. That's how I got my 8700 to talk to Desktop Manager.

I agree with apacheinfo, I had to do the same thing.
