    The k750i does crash until you apply the patch that's available from a German site (don't have the link here but it has been linked to before if you do a search fo the k750).

    I don't use the USB though, Bluetooth is easier than faffing around with cables.

    It goes at 43kbps so not hugely fast but it does depend how much you're doing. I've transferred a few mini-movies over and a few music tracks.

    For all I do, and say, 10 pics at a time, it's quicker to use BT than to play 'hunt the cable' - but the patch is out there and does work.

    but i'm still on panther...so i can't use the path

    i don't know whether it's better to a buy a usb bluetooth adapter or to upgrade to tiger...which i've been thinking about anyway....i don't know whether it's worth it or not...
