    Hey, Ive been having a hell of a time trying to figure this out. I just bought an Ericsson w300i flip phone. its a walkman and can be an mp3 player. They sent me a cd with software, but its for windows.. so I tried downloading some software (I dont know if its the right stuff but thats a different thought).. What I really need help with is a memory stick. I bought one and i have no idea how to use it. there werent any instalation instructions. What software do I need and what hardware? It gave me a chip to insert in the phone, which worked, but it gave me another chip to insert in an "adapter" ? thanks for the help, by the way im working with a Memory Stick Micro (M2)

    If it has bluetooth just setup Bluetooth with the phone in System Preferences==>Bluetooth==>Devices==>Set up new device, and then use Bluetooth File Exchange in /Applications/Utilities.

    What Mac have you got? All the Intel ones have bluetooth except the Mac Pro. Otherwise you could get a bluetooth USB adapter, or you could get a card reader which reads memory sticks.

    I have a Mac OS X and im using Version 10.3.9... i did all you said and it gave me the message "No Bluetooth Hardware found" In order to use this application, you must have a bluetooth module.PLease verify that your Bluetooth hardware is properly attached to the computer.

    Anyhow I don't think any Mac had bluetooth built in by default before Tiger, so you'll need a bluetooth adapter...
