    Well, I migrated from Android and yes WP8 is not complete but you should have done research before moving from iPhone. It is not easy to move a new platform, specially when some of your apps are not available.

    If you installed W8.1 on your Mac then WP will work with it effortlessly. You need to allow the drivers for the phone to finish installing once you hook it up to USB.

    Also there's the WP app available for W8.1 which should automatically install once you hook up the phone. It will be on the Start screen.

    Once everything is setup you should be able to move files around fairly easily as you wish.

    Now, I have no idea how well a Mac handles W8.1 so unless it blocks certain things it should act like W8.1, which means all this should be automatic. I'm going to assume you have the latest version of Parallels? I also assume you have a legal full version of W8.1?

    A little research before jumping Ship goes a long way. Can't really blame the platform for that error.

    I would never recommend a windows phone to someone who uses a mac. Sure it can work, but mac products work so well together. Btw, I don't really like macs.

    Wrong thread?

    If you haven't got Black yet, it's supposed to fix this. I'd recommend a hard reset after the update.

    off-topic and not helpful to the OP.

    Does Mac let Windows 8 running via Parallels install drivers needed? Did you try to install the Windows Phone to Mac app to your computer?
