    Even on OSX 10.6.x + the BB-DM software leaves a LOT to be desired. Bricked my Tour with it when VZW released their last OS update. had to fix with a PC.

    This is easily done, just plug the device into the mac (usb). You should see the drive (SD card) show up on the desktop. Just drag and drop your mp3s from your mac onto the card...and voila they are there....Use your media app to play them.

    I have not bothered as my iPod is a much nicer player and can easily sync with iTunes and hold far more music.

    Just got a Blackberry curve today. Realized I have system 10 .4.11. How do I upgrade that system to the 10 .5.5 needed?

    buy/download Leopard or Snow Leopard (10.5 or 10.6) to update or partition/use a windows computer for DM.

    I went to PoctetMac and it works great. Download and open. 10.4.11 OSX
    It actually works better that BB DM which I have on my IMac.

    My computor (G4 powerbook) is topped out at 10.4.11. Won't do 10.5 no way (not enough memory or processor.)
    But, PocketMac works better anyway.

    Turn on mass storage mode, and drag and drop to the media card.

    A lot of you have said PocketMac is better. Last time I used PocketMac was with my Curve 8310. It ruined all of my computer's settings. It created weird "mind-of-its-own" calendars, triplicated contacts and generally never worked right. Has it improved since then? Because I'm too scared to try it again, unless someone here tells me it's better now.

    Current gear:

    - iMac with Intel running OSX 10.4.11
    - Blackberry Bold 9700

    What's up with BB not including Tiger in this application, anyways?

    Thanks!

    I had my PC stolen and couldn't afford to replace it so a friend has donated a power mac to me as he knows I can't afford to replace my PC.
    The Mac is so unfamiliar to me i feel like a first timer and the os X is maxed at 10.4.11 and i can't afford to upgrade to a higher version. Lots of other people have posted here and there both on Crackberry and the RIM sites but i can't find any solutions to the dilemma of a version of BBDM, Roxy or whatever for media synching that are stable and reliable.
    Someone please help !!!

    I have so far been unable to find DM for osx 10.4.11 and have no other way to back up or restore my phone (8350) and i don't really need to worry about my media files as they are all on my card.
    PLEASE let me know if anyone can find a version of DM that can be used with the powerpc chip and my os ver. any clues so far list only intel chips and my G5 is a powerpc.
