    You must be overlooking something because USB cable is the only way to download from a Suunto. Plug your download cable into your desktop or laptop, connect the DC, then click Import/Import from Dive Computer and the download window should come up.

    Good luck. Let us know if you have any other problems. I'm not very familiar with Macs but maybe someone else in the thread is and can help you out better. I have no idea if the Mac version is functionally different than the Windows version.

    I got frustrated with Subsurface and downloaded Mac Dive. Works flawlessly.

    Glad you found a solution with Mac Dive (which I use)

    To be fair I've found that the Mac can be a PITA for computer connectivity. I've had similar issues with my Eon and before that Cressi, but they've connected fine on my Windows PC

    With the Perdix unless you have the latest flavour of bluetooth on your machines it won't connect either.

    If only I could get Mac dive to work on my PC so I have multiple places to downloads and link my dives to I'd be happy

    Okay I realize that this thread goes back several years, but it appears that people still play in here so I have a question.

    I am new to Mac and have just tried to download DM5 for my D4I Novo computer.........however it won't download? Well it downloaded, but it won't allow me to launch it?

    Is there something obvious I am missing?

    I looked in the App store, but there isn't one?

    Thanks for any and all help.

    Okay so I have spent the last 7 hours trying to get this bleeping thing to work, and all I get on my D4i Novo is "Data Transfer" yet nothing happens??

    This is a new computer with the supplied Suunto USB cable?

    I figured screw it, I will give Subsurface a shot..........ya that doesn't work either?

    How can things in this day and age of computers be that difficult to work?

    Time to delete all this crap off my Mac, and just skip the dive logs. LOL......

    I have the Vyper Novo and it uses a similar cable if not the same. The issue is in the cable, even though the computer displays Data Transfer. The data does not transfer until you start seeing a line running under the words Data Transfer. My cable went bad after less than year, ended up buying an after market one that was cheaper and better built. Before you give up completely try inserting the cable a few times, each time wait a few seconds with the cable inserted before trying again because there is a slight pause when it starts to down load. I am assuming you are turning the cable clock wise after you insert it.
