    Hi I have a bold 9700 and one of the new macbooks. I can't seem to get it to recognise that the BB is connected at all. I have downloaded the Mac OS BB desktop software as well, restarted and that but still to no avail.

    Am I being silly or is there something I need to do. Apologies if there is already a thread that addresses this...

    Might need to turn on or off Mass Storage Mode in media settings.

    Turns out that this isn't working still. Are there any other possible things I can do?

    Have you tried a different USB cord or the other USB slot? All of mine are wonky and it's hit or miss if I can get and keep a connection.

    I'll try a new cord. I thought I had to use the one provided as it had the little BB logo on the small connector; I guess it is just a standard cable! Cheers.

    How new is your Mac? The new Mac are booting by default with 64-bit kernel.

    Blackberry Desktop Manager for Mac is not working correctly if you're running the 64-bit kernel under Snow-Leopard. In fact RIM extensions are still in 32-bit (= not loaded with 64-bit kernel).

    To check the kernel:
    - Apple menu > About this Mac
    - click on More info...
    - them click on Software
    - read the line "64-bit Kernel and Extensions"

    To start with the 32-bit kernel (not permanent):
    - restart your Mac and press the 3 and 2 keys during the start

    Good luck!
