    Hi Everyone, I have been having this problem with my blackberry and my mac. I'm not that tech savy I don't understand what's happening.

    I installed the blackberry mac software a long time ago, I was able to sync my phone with mac no problem, specificly with ICAL... now It won't do anything except to tell me the Charging Current is not sufficient...

    Please help. Thank you.

    Your phone states that or the computer states that? is sound like if computer states that, that theres an issues with the usb slot your using, have you attempted to use a different usb port??

    Have you tried using a different USB port? Also try to do a PRAM and SMC reset on your laptop. This could very simply be a power management issue.

    See this page for instructions:

    i have tried a different usb port, it didn't make a difference...

    What is a PRAM and SMC reset, how would I do that?

    Mac DM is not compatible with Tiger (10.4)...you need at least 10.5.5....

    Ooops cant believe I didn't catch that! But it depends, are you using the new Desktop Manager release recently or are you using another software to sync your BB to your mac?

    The new DM only works with 10.5 or above. It doesn't work with 10.4.11 or earlier.
