    Hopefully someone can help me. I'm trying to do my initail sync with usb.
    But some some reason it keeps wanting to do it over the bluetooth and always
    throws up that error saying first sync has to be done using usb. Can someone shed some light for me.

    Shpanks!

    a) what software are you using to sync?
    b) have you tried shutting off bluetooth? (i dont mean it sarcastically in anyway)

    also, if trying to use pocketmac, from my experiences, i havn't had any success. its known that there isn't really a solid sync program for bberry's and MAC, and i am definitely looking forward to the day it finally comes out, but good luck!

    I was using pocket mac but it never saw my BB. I gave up on that.

    Then i tried Mark/Space

    I'm not able to sync with the USB at all. It always trying to connect with bluetooth. When i turn off bluetooth it give me and error saying bluetooth is off. In pref. i have it set to auto sync or open mark/space when i plug in the USB. That doesnt work either.

    I Also have a micro SD card in the BB but it doesnt even recognize that. I know the USB works because i was able to update my OS using the vista machine. BUT everything i have and live by is on my MAC. Nothing is syncing for me, i've had the phone for 2 days now and i still have no contacts or anything sync'd to my phone. I dont want to give up on it because i like this phone.

    Any one that can help, please chime in. I'm starting to get desperate, i haven't really slept since yesterday afternoon due to this. (i work nights)

    my girlfriend was having the same problem with her Curve on her mac, I ended up just completely uninstalling missing sync and reinstalling it. I also did a battery pull on the phone and tried again. It worked fine after that.

    Did you completely remove PocketMac? Also, do you have the MissingSync BB app installed, and set with proper permissions?

    X2 on making sure PocketMac is uninstalled. OSX 10.4 was okay with both installed at the same time but when 10.5 came out for some reason Missing Sync had problems. Uninstalling Pocket Mac will cure this.

    Everything should be set to allow correct?

    Its weird how it does not read the USB at all.

    Are you running the Media Sync program also? That will have to be uninstalled also if you are.

    No the preview version of Media Sync for Mac from RIM. If you don't know about it then I'm going to assume you don't have it. Also what version of Missing Sync are you running? 1.0 or 2.0? And what Mac are you using and what OS?

    Try doing this...
    Go to the Finder on the Mac and then Go to the Go menu and select Go to Folder:

    Paste in this location:
    /System/Library/Extensions/

    Remove any of these files and reboot the Macintosh:

    RIMBBUSB.kext
    BlackBerryUSB.kext
    BlackBerryUSBDev.kext

    If this doesn't work plug the USB cable directly into the computer if it is connected to a hub or a keyboard.

    If it still doesn't work remove your media storage card and try that. If it works you can reinsert the card and sync normally.

    Ok the only other thing I can think of is to download this file from your Blackberry and install. http://mirror.markspace.com/bb2.jad You will need to reboot your phone afterward. I'm thinking maybe this hasn't been installed on your phone yet. Its the program which allows your BB and MS to communicate with each other.

    ***REMEMBER TO DOWNLOAD THIS FILE WITH YOUR PHONE*** It can be done on a SD card but is more tedious.

    This is really getting frustrating, i took out the micro sd card.

    Odd enough my computer doesn't even see the micro sd when its plugged , doesnt mount or anything.

    Are you running a firewall? If so make sure Missing Sync has application permissions. Im running out of ideas. Also what kind of Mac are you using?

    Only thing I'm using is little snitch. I'm running 10.5.6 mac book pro. Bought it late
    Sept 07. I have markspace that I downloaded. So far its been nothing but issues. It won't
    Sync over usb. My computer won't see the 2gb that's in there. Pocket mac doesn't work.
    I broke down and used a vista machine to sync my contacts. It deleted a lot of duplicate "mobile"
    Since I had an iphone and it had the option to have multiple "mobile numbers"
    I really like this phone I don't want to have to go back to said iphone. :t

    If the drive doesn't mount at all, you're having some kind of USB problem. Have you tried a different cable? Is the USB cable connected directly (not through a hub?) Can you see the device if you connect it to a different machine?
