Re: Problem with Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac

Great Tip,

Had the same problem as NJC, then I followed your advice and removed Sony Bridge Preferences, however the procedure didn't go as smoothly, took me 3-4 times reconnecting the phone and switching between the modes before it finally accepted the phone and downloaded the update. Nevertheless, now that it did all of my troubles are thing of the past as much as I can notice so far.

Very happy now Slightly smiling Face !

Re: Problem with Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac

I have aproblem with Sony Bridge for Mac.

I have the latest version (3.0) and I want to update my Sony Xperia Sola to ICS.

At first the program finds my phone and setup is starting. But just when the installation process begins and tries to find my phone (again), it shuts my phone off (or restarts it), leaving me a error message telling me it can't find my phone. This despite the fact that it found my phone just a couple of mintes ago.

Can anyone help me?

Re: Problem with Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac

I have a problem with Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac (don't we all!). I have an Xperia T and run Mac OS X 10.6.8

The application does not display I-Tunes content and it crashes.

It's extremely frustrating - I am at point where the Xperia T is going back to phone shop as I assume they sell this kit with the knowledge that it has problems. Hardly worthy of being called a flagship phone for Sony.

Anyone know of any solution?

Re: Problem with Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac

Similar problem here with OSX Mavericks and Sony Xperia T. It crashes when attempting to disconnect the mobile device during the Xperia software update process.

 

Here the full system.log in OSX when the crash happens (can paste it here since it is too long):

Re: Problem with Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac

My problem is that in OSX 10.9.1 when I go to update  my Arc S (LT18i)

New software available 

Now 4.0.2.A.0.62

New 4.1.B.0.587

 

Bridge for Mac starts initializing and goes no further. - i followed the steps to get to that point.

It also seems difficult to shut down BFM after this

 

In the manage device area the following do not work - they are grayed out:

 

Backup 

Restore from Back up 

 

I have access to itunes etc on teh rest of the panel.

 

I also have a separate issue but someone might know here - I am not getting calls from overseas phones. I went to the call barring area call settings/call barring/

All settings are marked as Disabled although I am able to make outgoing international calls

when I try and change one I get

"Call settings error

Unexpected response from network"
