    Default Mac Wont Recognise My Bold 9700

    Hi I have a bold 9700 and one of the new macbooks. I can't seem to get it to recognise that the BB is connected at all. I have downloaded the Mac OS BB desktop software as well, restarted and that but still to no avail.

    Am I being silly or is there something I need to do. Apologies if there is already a thread that addresses this...

    Cheers

    Might need to turn on or off Mass Storage Mode in media settings.

    Turns out that this isn't working still. Are there any other possible things I can do?

    Thanks

    Have you tried a different USB cord or the other USB slot? All of mine are wonky and it's hit or miss if I can get and keep a connection.

    I'll try a new cord. I thought I had to use the one provided as it had the little BB logo on the small connector; I guess it is just a standard cable! Cheers.

    How new is your Mac? The new Mac are booting by default with 64-bit kernel.

    Blackberry Desktop Manager for Mac is not working correctly if you're running the 64-bit kernel under Snow-Leopard. In fact RIM extensions are still in 32-bit (= not loaded with 64-bit kernel).

    To check the kernel:
    - Apple menu > About this Mac
    - click on More info...
    - them click on Software
    - read the line "64-bit Kernel and Extensions"

    To start with the 32-bit kernel (not permanent):
    - restart your Mac and press the 3 and 2 keys during the start

    Good luck!
