Well, I finally got my USB data cable for my Audiovox 8910 cellphone. I had ordered it a while back through eBay. $10USD shipped. That’s a lot better than the $99.99CAD+tax that the Bell Store wanted for it.
Anyhoo, of course what’s the first thing I want to do? DOWNLOAD PICTURES! hehe. What else?
I tried at first to just connect it to my iBook but that didn’t seem to get me anywhere. I managed to find the BitPim application that has executables for Windows, Linux and OS X! I did get a little worried though when I saw they don’t support the Audiovox 8910. Oh No!
Now I had problems getting it to work on the iBook. I gave up and went to the XP box and had even more trouble. Finally I managed to find MAU108’s (& blu3ad3pt1’s) site which had a link to a newer version of the Curitel drivers. Once I started using those on the XP box everything started to work!
I got curious then and went back to the iBook. For some reason now it just worked. I’m not sure if this is because I was originally doing everything wrong or if it had something to do with getting it to work on the WinXP box. I had installed some ProlificUSBtoSerial driver I found on thephonemall.net and that might have been what allowed it all to work. I’m not sure because I deleted that driver and it still works. Maybe there’s something left over on the iBook from that driver install.
Anyhoo,it’s all good now! I can download all the stupid pictures I take with my camera phone now.
