How do I get a file back that was hide?

Main Menu > Media > (highlight pictures) > press Blackberry button > Explore > Media Card > Blackberry > pictures > press Blackberry button > show hidden
In short, navigate to the folder where you hid the folder/file and press the Blackberry button and choose show hidden. you'll then see the hidden item in the list as a semi-transparent item. Highlight the item > press the Blackberry button > Properties > uncheck "Hidden". You can then go back and access the file as you normally would.

OR if you have a PC, use windows explorer & go to the Media Card folder where you hid the folder, in the Tools Menu- Folder Options- View tab- select "show hidden files and folders".
You folder will be visible (in windows) but slightly transparent.
Right-click the folder, select Properties.. uncheck the 'hidden' checkbox and click 'Apply'

I dont know hot to put the music to the MP3

Your mp3 player should work like any other hard drive. Plug it in, download music, and copy that music into your mp3 player's directory.

i dont know how to download songs onto my mp3. i just got it and my manuel does not tell me how to?

The best way is to use Cd's you already have or buy. Use windows Media Plyer It is the easiest way to learn. To use Media Player, Start the program and looking at the top of the program, if the classic menu's are not showing - right click out next to the heading, "Media Player", -> chose view -> then -> click on Classic Menus. This will show the menus that are easier to access. Now go to -> Tools -> Options And here, click on the Rip Music tab. This is where you set up media player to rip music down to a MP3 and where to put it when done. So on this tab you will see Rip music to this location, Click the pull down menu and pick a folder you can find easy -(go to My Computer, or the Start Menu Button, and right click and chose -> Explore -> you will see on the left side of the screen, the folder tree, click on the ( C: ) at the top and open up the tree, then right click the( C: ) move to the menu at the top and chose -> New -> then Folder - then name your folder " AAA " it will always be at the top of the tree - easy to find), Tell media player to put your MP3's here, then move down on the RIP MUSIC Tab to the FORMAT section and pull down menu and chose MP3 => chose to rip when CD is inserted. click OK and close the Tools Menu, Close the Program. Now hook up your player, go to My computer right click on the START menu, look at the folder tree and scroll down to the bottom and see if your player is there, if you see your player all is well. If you do not see it do not worry we will fix that later. Next insert a CD into the drive and when a window pops up asking what to do chose to RIP WITH MEDIA PLAYER. Once Media Player has finished riping the CD, Go to your folder and Copy the MP3's into your player's Music folder - one at the time or as a group. Now you should be able to un-hook your player and enjoy your new music. Now if you want to download MP3's from Wal-mart or iTunes you need to change the mode of your player. See this tip posted here.Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem. . if you do buy and download mp3's from some web site you will have to deal with the song's license. These license can get lost, If you ever have to reinstall or have a problem with your computer.Where CD's Ripped to mp3's do not. Now To tag your files if Media Player does not do it for you. Some CD's Media player will tag for you, Some no. So How do you name your MP3's . Here's how. Again, go to My Computer or right click the START button chose Explore. Find the MP3 file you want to tag and right click it. At the bottom of the Context Menu chose Properties then click the summary tab, now you will see on the right side under Value, The Values you can change such as Artist name, Album Name, and do not forget, The Song Title under Discription. Push Apply and done

how do i transfer stuff from blackberry curve into the memory card

Open your media manager. Push menu button and select "explore".

Navigate through your device memory until you find the file you want to transfer. Highlight the file, push the menu button and select "move".

Navigate back up the file tree by selecting "up" until you see the memory card folder. Select the memory card folder, and choose the option to "put file here".

Keep in mind, you can not load programs from your memory card. You can only put files there (music, documents, ebooks, etc).

Voice Notes to Ringtone.

If the voice note is stored on the device memory:

Go into the Media icon. Hit the BlackBerry® (menu) button and select ‘Explore’. Select ‘device memory/home/user/voice notes’. Highlight the voice note and hit the menu button. Select ‘Copy’. Hit ‘Up’ twice. Highlight the ringtones folder. Hit the menu button and click on ‘Copy Into’.

If the voice note is stored on the media card:

Go into the Media icon. Hit the BlackBerry® (menu) button and select ‘Explore’. Select ‘Media Card/BlackBerry®/voice notes’. Highlight the voice note and hit the menu button. Select ‘Copy’. Hit ‘Up’ twice. Highlight the ringtones folder. Hit the menu button and click on ‘Copy Into’.

Now the voice note will be available as a ringtone and can be assigned to a specific individual.
