As far as I know, the Viewty software is only compatible with windows. It also comes on a tiny disc which might get eaten up by your Mac. However, you can tell the Viewty to behave like a USB memory stick, which should work with the majority of OSs out there, including Mac.
LG will tell you that their software is great. As a viewty user, I will tell you that their software is awful. It doesn’t offer much more functionality than by using the viewty as a plain ol’ memory stick, and I don’t mind sacrificing that functionality for the sake of usability.  The software crashed every single time I tried to use it.
One of the features the viewty doesn’t have is an obvious way to delete all text messages. However, all hope is not lost. By clicking what I call the “right click” button (or what you might call “the button in the bottom left with the three horizontal lines on it”), it’ll bring up a list of options. Scroll down to “Mark/Unmark” and it’ll turn your inbox into a list with radio buttons. Check the radio button right at the top of the screen (next to “Inbox”) and then hit the “delete” button down at the bottom. That’s how you can delete all your text messages!
The delete key on the viewty is actually a button (surprisingly). At the bottom of the handset you have a green phone icon, a red phone icon, and a central button which looks like a “C”. That central button is the delete button. What looks like the touch-screen delete button is actually a “return to previous” button. This feature seems to be a problem for a lot of people - I know I first got confused the first time I used my viewty and tried to delete text on it.
This button on the homescreen of the viewty is the easiest way to access your web browser. The long way is “menu” -> “extras” -> “O2 active” -> home. I’ll cover some of the features of the web browser at a later date.

Can not down load from pc using usb cable


what's the brand of the phone? normally every brand has its own way of connecting to the computer. nokia for instance uses nokia pc suite as a sync application. normally a cd with compatible software is delivered with the phone. if you don't have the cd, you can download the soft from the manufacturer's web site. install this software first and wait for the soft installer to ask you to connect the phone at the right moment to make a valid synced connection between the pc and the phone...

Mini cd got stuck


Hi
You can try tipping the Mac on its side with the DVD drive pointing down and shake it gently while pressing the Eject button on the Keyboard.
If that doesn't work, the only other way is disassembly :(

Viewty sync to mac


LG has not yet developed the drivers for mac. And you won't find them on the CD, so don't get crazy to put the minicd con the mac... it won't be useful. Just monitor the lgmobile.com mobile for the drivers to be published. LG has promised them for the first half of 2008. Until then, you can only use USB or Bluetooth to exchange data.
