As OS X 10.9 Mavericks doesn't support Sync Services anymore, you'll need to use BlackBerry Link instead to sync contacts or other stuff.

CAUTION - This update (2.0.1) removed the ability to sync with iTunes. I have a Blackberry Bold 9000. After this update it tells me I have no media card installed so it cannot sync music. Media Card? It has a Sim card and the option is checked for any media files. This worked fine before the upgrade. Whatever improvements there may be (I did not notice any), loosing music was not OK with me. I am looking for a download of the last version, anyone know where I can find it?

Sounds more like your MicroSD card came loose- you're sure as heck not saving any media to any SIM card.

OK, it's a MicroSD card. No, it did not come loose, I have popped it in and out many times trouble-shooting This. Before I updated, it worked. After I updated, it wont recognize the card. Yes it shows a media card with space on it in Tools. Yes Media Card Support is set to ON and Mass Storage support is on (tried it both ways). That is why I commented here, if I had known I would loose music sync I would not have allowed the update. It is also true that I can't use photos as I don't have a recent version of iTunes installed, that is unfortunate but that has not changed - at least I USED TO get music installed and updated. Try getting through to RIM to ask for assistance - fuggitaboutit, lots of red tape there. I was hoping someone could point to to a link to download the last version?

So you can run the latest BB Desktop Software but not a later iTunes?

Sorry, I meant iPhoto, not iTunes (I was referencing not being able to use pictures so at least I got part of it right). Yes I have the current version if iTunes.

FINALLY WORKS IN 64-BIT MODE!

JUST PERCHANCE I downloaded and installed this update and rebooted while still in 64-bit mode and plugged in my Bold 9700. MUCH to my surprise, in the lower left of the window there was the words displayed; "Connecting..." Boom! It popped up as connected, I clicked Sync and, guess what? It SYNC'D! Now there's NO reason to boot in 32-bit mode... awesome!

For some reason the update failed via the BlackBerry Desktop software- got an error after update was done downloading- and this feature isn't mentioned here so I thought I'd share. Thanks.

I have a new macbook pro and this software doesn't support Mac OS X 64 bit.

I want to do the sync between my blackberry and my mac but don't want to turn my system into 32 bit.

Is there a way to do it or do i need to wait a new version of this software?

Even when i own a blackberry curve and have the BBDM basically, every App and every programme RIM has launches is failed always crashes and always stops in the middle of backing-up my BB.

Hope they can find the write solution for these problems and fix it.

This version is a big pile of trash as far as I am concerned. Takes forever to sync, took 20 minutes to delete an app from my BB, offered to delete all the calendar entries on my Mac. Version 1.0.4 was working so beautifully. Why oh why did I upgrade?

I am adding to my negative review. I tried everything. I trashed all the preferences, cleared the data on my BB and then replaced the data with my computer data. When I synced the 2nd time the software offered to delete 3614 calendar entries from my Mac. Something has clearly changed here "under the hood."I finally threw in the towel and purged all traces of BB Desktop 2.0 and downgraded to version 1.0.4 and everything is good again.

Kidsdoc, I feel the exact same way about BB Desktop 2.0. What used to take only seconds to sync my calendar entries now takes minutes! I, too, want to downgrade to version 1.0.4 but can't seem to find a link (all redirect to 2.0). How did you do it?
