    Hi everyone,

    I have the 8130 from verizion and I'm wondering if someone can help me out.

    i have a 6gb memory card and i'm hoping to transfer files to and from the device, but it's not working. i also have major problems syncing the device.

    everytime i sync or try to click and drag music/pics/vids to the device, it automatically shuts off and a red light comes on. It says that i've disconnected the device, but i haven't. the media card is also formatted... it stores my pics and videos on the card but there's no way of transfering.. i don't want to loose all of my stuff..


    i got the pearl the day it came out and i've just haven't had the time to mess with it. the media card is in mass storage mode. i've tried syncing with the blackberry software for mac and also the missing sync for blackberry.

    i'm using the new operating system on my macbook pro. if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated!!

    thanks,
    -nick

    Nick, Sorry to say ( same boat) that there is a known issue with the 8130 and a Mac. You can not use mass storage mode as it will send the BB into a never ending reboot. The only way as of right now, is to use a card reader and mount the drive so you can add photos, ring tones, and Music ( mp3 unprotected only). You can load themes and apps using the PocketMac. Take a look in here, there's more info...

    Also just so you know, at this time there is no way to update your devices OS with a Mac, unless you use bootcamp and load Windows so you can run the DT Manager.
