    There's a program called Parallels Desktop but it costs 80 bucks.

    That allows you to put windows XP or Vista on, But I heard there were issues with Parallels letting you use the USB port?

    Rim will come out with their Mac version of Dm sometime in Q1 of 2009.

    For the media, taking out the SD card and using a card reader is another option.

    For contacts and calendar, I use Entourage. I would do the VMWare Fusion run around, but don't feel like taking the time to install windows on my machine.

    And blowing $40 on software for a few months isn't worth it for me.

    I could not get Pocketmac work either.....So I bought Missing Sync and it was flawless.....except for iTunes. I guess there are DRM issues.

    I have (finally) had success syncing with my macbook. Pocketmac does not recognize the Storm, it seems to need an update (drivers or something.)

    I pulled the trigger and bought missingsync... it is certainly better than pocket mac. I synced all of my address book. I have over 272 gigs of music on my external hd, so i made a 5gb playlist on itunes and then checked just that box on missing sync.

    At first i had some serious issues with the music sync. Here are the problems and how i fixed them.
    1. First the media card wasnt configured for mass storage mode. I had to go to options > memory > and change 2 things. Mass Storage Mode Support ON and also Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode when Connected ON.

    Then it recognized my music but only loaded the first album and stopped...

    SOooo... i rechecked what songs i had on there, removed one album that had DRM (i didnt notice it earlier) the rest were all mp3 files. but still no luck.

    SO i copied all of those songs into a new playlist > went back to missingsync, checked the new playlist and it worked. I felt like i was trying to trick the damn software, but it worked.

    im not sure if any of this info is helpful for anyone... if so great, if not... please dont mind my rambling.

    go jets.

    My PocketMac worked initially, then when I added a calender date and went to sync again, PocketMac appears to be trying to finish up the sync, and never finishes. The storm loses the connection to computer and goes to charge mode with time display.

    Its bizarre that it did work, but after I added dates to my calendar it wont now???? anyone else with this issue, but I will confirm it did work initially and that is PocketMac from the PocketMac website not the blackberry website. Tried both

    Thanks dirtyjersey! You helped me a bunch!


    One question though, when I connect my storm and mac via bluetooth I can't transfer any files... is this a Verizon thing?
