It's recommended to buy a microSD card to store your media files on, so you don't run out of memory on your device.

Depending on what OS your BlackBerry is tells you what size microSD card you can buy. You can check under Options ' About (will be listed as v4.xx.xxx). Look at the chart at the following link to see what size you can obtain -http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB05461

On the BlackBerry go into Options ' Media Card. Recommended media settings are as follows:

Media Card support : ON
Encryption Mode : NONE
Mass Storage Support : ON
Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected : YES

Mass Storage mode allows your BlackBerry to act as an extra drive when connected to your PC. So it will show up as an extra drive letter in Windows Explorer. So you can just drag/drop media files onto your media card and vice versa.

Or if you use ITunes, you can you the Media Sync to synchronize with the device. Read up about that here:http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/features/media/mediasync.jsp#tab_tab_overview

SOURCE: Cant open picture files on

Hi pollyanna.... Copy the data from your berry to your computer and reformat the card, if it will let you. That seems to be the only way out. IF it won't let you do that, then you probably have corrupt files. In that case take your blackberry and and backup files you do have to your phone store and ask them to rescue them. Joe Thanks for choosing Fixya!

About transferring media files
You can connect your BlackBerry® device to your computer to transfer files between your device and your computer, or you can use

device does not encrypt the transferred files. If you transfer encrypted files from your media card using mass storage mode or Bluetooth
technology, you cannot decrypt the files on your computer or on a Bluetooth enabled device.

1. Connect your BlackBerry® device to your computer.

I was given a blackberry pearl 8100 and am trying to import my pictures from my device. i was able to from my media card, but not from the device. how can i get these pics off my phone and onto my...


Hi,
Most of the mobiles will prompt the user to select the mode of connection when connected to computer such as "Mass storage mode/data transfer mode" and "PC suite/modem mode". If you select the "Mass storage mode/data transfer mode", then only your mobile phone's memory card is connected to your system just like pen drive. so only the pictures present in momory card can be accessed. For transfering pictures from phone memory, try the following methods,
1. Go to your file manager in mobile phone, move the pictures from your phone memory to memory card.
2. Install proper PC suite for your mobile, connect to system in phone mode/modem mode/pc suite mode. Then using the PC suite file manager in your system, oyu can access files stored on to phone memory as well as memory card.
3. Connect a bluetooth dongle to your system, establish a bluetooth connection to your mobile. Threw bluetooth file manager from your system, you can browse the phone memory of your phone.
I hope any of the above tips may solve your problem.

Music and pictures on blackberry 7250


Transferring media files back and forth between your phone and your computer is quite easy if you download the "Blackberry Desktop Manager" software from Blackberry.com. There is one button on the main screen that will say either "Media" or "Media Manager" when you have the software installed, and will allow you to copy music, songs, files from your computer to the phone or vice-versa. Hint: Always open the BB Desktop Software Manager on your computer first, before connection your phone with a USB cable. Will save you hours of time!

Blackberry curve from sprint


I am going to guess that since you can copy some types of media files to your phone then the problem is the format of the video files you want to copy. The phone's media playing application may not show files it cannot recognize.(or show an error message).

If you want to watch videos (or movies) on any type of smart phone or mobile player then I suggest you download a free application called Format Factory. It converts any type of media file to any other type of media file (video, music, pictures, DVDs). It has settings for Blackberry phones, iPods, PsP, etc. Go to: http://www.formatoz.com/ and check it out.

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset


Hello,

Try the following. Hope this helps.

Okay,


1. Go into "Media" on your BlackBerry and enable incoming files (Menu-->Receive using bluetooth).
2. Find the file on your friend's device that you wish to send, and beam the said file accordingly.
2a. If you have not "paired" (created a friendship between) the two devices before, you will need to do this first...
2b. One of the devices will ask for a PIN code first and on this device you need to create a four-digit, numeric password that can be anything you like.
2c. On the second device, enter the four-digit, numeric password you created and follow the simple, on-screen prompts on both devices to complete the pairing (you can also pair the devices in advance by going into Menu-->Set Up Bluetooth).
2d. Depending on the devices being used and the time taken to complete the pairing, you may need to re-send the file (go back to step 1), otherwise, continue below...
3. When your friend's device tries to send you the file, your BlackBerry should ask you to name the file and where to save it; if you have not set the device as "trusted" in the bluetooth settings (Options-->Bluetooth-->your friend's device), you may need to approve the file transfer first though.
4. The file should now be on your device.


Note: by default, all
* Pictures are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/pictures or /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures if you have a memory card.

* Sounds (including songs) are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/ringtones/ or /Media Card/BlackBerry/ringtones/ if you have a memory card.

* Videos are saved /Device Memory/home/user/videos or /Media Card/BlackBerry/videos if you have a memory card.

In other words, unless you specify somewhere else in step 3, this is where you will find your file.


And remember, your incoming file transfer WILL NOT WORK UNLESS YOU FIRST "PAIR" (CREATE A FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN) THE DEVICES, go into Media and CLICK MENU-->RECEIVE USING BLUETOOTH!!!
