Hi,the problem you are experiencing is a problem most macbook users experience when trying to send files from mac to blackberry,which is as a result of the fact that the operating system on the blackberry is far lower and incompatible with the mac,however the mac will receive files from the blackberry wiyh ease because it's operating system is higher and accepts all file types from the blackberry.
The best way to transfer files from mac to your blackberry is via bluetooth since the bluetooth technology is the fastest and doesn't involve interaction with the operating system of the devices.
Here is how you send files from your mac to your blackberry via bluetooth;
The first thing you’ll have to do is pair your BlackBerry’s Bluetooth function with your Mac. Go to Manage Connections, and then Set Up Bluetooth. A dialog box should be there to greet you, asking how you’d like to add your device. Click the option next to “Search for devices from here,” and hit OK. From there your BlackBerry will search for nearby Bluetooth transmitters — chances are, early on on in the process you’ll see “1 Found” in the status bar, which is more than likely your computer.
Once done, you’ll get another dialog box asking you to select the proper device. Select the one for your computer (if there is even more than one). Next up is a dialog box asking for the numeric passkey for the computer. What? Passkey? You don’t remember setting up no stinkin’ passkey! Chill. This is just to verify that you are in fact using both the BlackBerry and the computer. Enter in any old number. Any one you choose. Just make sure to remember it so you can enter it in on your computer. Once you click OK, a prompt will pop up on your computer asking you to repeat the passkey. Enter it, and the devices will pair.
To start a transfer go into the default Media application. From there, click in the Menu button, and then select Receive Using Bluetooth. A dialog box will pop up which says File Transfer, Waiting for connection. From there, head to your Mac, where you’ll want to open Bluetooth File Exchange. This can be found in Applications — Utilities. Open it and you should get browse file window, where you can select which one you want to send. Select it. From there, another dialog box will pop up on your Mac asking you to select the Bluetooth device to which you want to transfer. It should find your BlackBerry device, though I’ve run into instances where I have to go through the pairing process all over again. In any case, click on the device, and then click Send. A transfer bar will pop up, which means you now have to go back and check your BlackBerry. A dialog box will appear asking if you want to accept the transfer. Click yes — you also have the ability to automatically accept transfers in the future.
The final step is to select the file destination on the BlackBerry. You can choose to save the file to your memory card, which is obviously recommended. If you’re transferring a ringtone, however, it would be advisable to click the file icon and transfer the file to ringtones folder in the device memory (Device Memory/home/user/ringtones).
Thanks and take care

Can see pictures on camera and in file when connected to my macbook (running osx leopard), but cannot transfer 700 pictures from my camera to my macbook. i was in the process of transferring about 1200...


you just mite have no more room on your macbook. if you do then it also could be that the files are protected or cant be read by the system. try to open up the files on your memory stick and copy and past or drag and drop see if that dose any different effect.

1) Enter a name for the BlackBerry smartphone that media files will be transferred to
2) Choose to use either the Device Memory or the Media Card memory
3) Specify how much memory to keep free of music
4) Delete music transferred from all sources managed by BlackBerry Media Syncronization.

Music and pictures on blackberry 7250


Transferring media files back and forth between your phone and your computer is quite easy if you download the "Blackberry Desktop Manager" software from Blackberry.com. There is one button on the main screen that will say either "Media" or "Media Manager" when you have the software installed, and will allow you to copy music, songs, files from your computer to the phone or vice-versa. Hint: Always open the BB Desktop Software Manager on your computer first, before connection your phone with a USB cable. Will save you hours of time!

I am going to guess that since you can copy some types of media files to your phone then the problem is the format of the video files you want to copy. The phone's media playing application may not show files it cannot recognize.(or show an error message).

If you want to watch videos (or movies) on any type of smart phone or mobile player then I suggest you download a free application called Format Factory. It converts any type of media file to any other type of media file (video, music, pictures, DVDs). It has settings for Blackberry phones, iPods, PsP, etc. Go to: http://www.formatoz.com/ and check it out.

Can't copy files to and from Windows Media Player


If the music service subscription that you originally used to transfer these files has expired, then you will get this error message.

Also, you have to fully resynchronize to the original computer yo connected the player to every 30 days.
