I am trying to put music on my phone using a Mac, but it never pops up on the desktop, even though my phone says it is connected. Is it a compatibility problem or just operator error? Anyone else run into this?
It's actually very easy. Open the setup assistant on the mac. Turn on BT on the phone, make it discoverable and pair them. Sounds like you've done that part.
Once that's done, you can either choose "send file" from the BT menu on the menu bar (if you've elected to display it), or you can open the BT preferences, select your phone from the list and click on the sprocket icon below the list to bring up the action menu. You can also browse the device from this menu.
