I have nokia 7610 and I have Virtual PC 7. I am also using Tiger (but that doesn't matter). My system specs are in my signature.

So, I want to tranfer files from my computer to my phone and vise-versa. Nokia gives a CD intended for PC's and a cable. I installed the cable drivers into my Virtual PC (which is running Windows XP with SP2) and the nokia Software.

But my phone is not recognized! what can i do?

Why do you have to transfer them onto VPC? iSync supports the 7610. Can't you transfer the files onto Tiger and then into VPC? Or am I missing something - I haven't got VPC so I don't know for sure.

Can you please tell me how can I do that using iSync? Really, I am clueless here and this f***** manual is not helping me...

All I have is the phone, the software install CD, (for PC), and a cable that connects to a USB.

When my phone is connected, I see in the System Profiler that I have a 7610 mobile phone connected. But my phone is not appearing into the iSync.

I think in iSync you need to choose "Add Device" from the "Devices" menu. I haven't added anything in quite some time so I don't remember exactly, but it's pretty straight-forward.

Good luck,

Which files are you trying to transfer? Does the phone have Bluetooth?

I transfer image/video/music files back and forth using the Bluetooth File Exchange. Pair the phone and the Mac then choose Browse Device from the Mac and you can go through the file structure on the phone and Get/Send files.

My phone has bluetooth. But my mac hasn't bluetooth module installed. You have bluetooth?

Yeah, my Powerbook has Bluetooth installed. To be honest, I'd consider buying a Bluetooth USB dongle. I've found it the easiest way to transfer contacts/files between phone and Mac.
if the pb has bluetooth integrated, why use a dongle? i would not use a dongle, if i were you. it is not reliable.
