Blackberry sync now working with USB and v5584
After I updated to Parallels 5584, my Blackberry sync no longer worked. I had also deleted pocketmac because I wasn't using it. I finally got it fixed after reviewing postings here and taking several steps. Here's what I did:
change VM USB config to connect USB devices to VM by default
reinstall parallels tools from menu item
download pocketmac and install on Mac
set blackberry desktop software to sync automatically and not update device time
don't plug in blackberry until after PC boots
unplug and replug it within 1 second
And - hooray - it began to sync. I suspect that the key was installing the pocketmac software on the Mac. And it is now updating my blackberry applications. hopefully that will complete without a hitch. it already disconnected once and I was able to restart it.
My configuration: MacOS 10.4.11, MS Windows XP, Sprint Blackberry 8830, Parallels 5584
I appreciate everyone's posts and hope that mine will help someone.
And Parallels staff - PLEASE MAKE THIS A HIGH PRIORITY FIX!!!!
What a way to spend the evening before a business trip, when I really need my blackberry data to be current...
