Sony Ericsson K750i QuickShare Mobile Phone Mac OSX 10.4 (Tiger) Kernal Panic (Crash) fix

I love my Sony Ericsson K750i. The quality of the camera is awesome. The phone is very powerful. Prior to the K750i I had a K700i, which also had a camera, I found I’d take lots of pictures with it, having a camera phone allows you to take pictures you’d not usually take, due to lack of camera. What I’m finding with both the K700i and the K750i is the pictures I take are ‘real life’ pictures, pictures of everyday events, not just birthdays and christmas and the family holiday.

The advent of digital technology means I take more pictures, I don’t worry about the cost of development because I don’t print them unless I want to. I don’t worry about taking the shot, because I can retake and take again. With a camera phone I’m catching pictures which might not mean much when I take them, but will mean a lot when looking back in years to come, such as my young cousins on Witham’s River Walk, or my parents cleaning out their pond. Digital photography has made it easier and more cost effective to capture those moments, mobile phones with cameras has made it possible to capture those moments all the time, I always have my phone with me, I’m catching moments in time I’ll appreciate the chance to look back on in the future.

So my girlfriend is now snap happy with my old K700i, she takes loads of abstract pictures, mainly in black and white, she’s really artistic with it, far more than I was. So with Jus now shooting away with my old K700i, I now have an upgrade, the K750i, sent to me brand new for renewing my contract with my mobile telephone company. How excited was I to have a USB cable? An easy way of getting my pictures onto my Mac. I love it, I plug in my K750i by USB to my Mac, iPhoto opens, and it imports my latest pictures, fantastic.

Once imported, I dismount my K750i, and unplug it, and then something very rare happens, my Apple Mac running OSX Tiger (10.4) crashes. The Kernal Panics, it dies, I have to restart, machine frozen, no way out, oh bleep.

Not good.

Bleep bleep bleep.

Various ‘Software Updates’ have come and gone, but still no fix from Apple to repair the damage, to make my K750i dismount from my Mac.

I’ve gone off and done some research, and its thanks to these guys that I found and installed K750iGrabber the fix I’ve been looking for.

I simply Download K750iGrabber and install it, I restart my Mac, and I now my K750i dismounts without crashing my machine.

Bingo, now I love my K750i even more, the movie quality for shooting film is also awesome.

I’m sure this blog post will excite Ultralab (1990-2006) Director, Richard Millwood and Jonathan Furness who also are big fans of the K750i.
