Well, I guess I am confiused. I have heard some people say on this forum that they have to use media manager to transfer video files to their 8830 for the device to recognize it.

Personally, this does not make alot of sense to me as I would think as long as it is encoded properly & you put it somewhere the device can find it, you should be good to go. I have been playing with video playback on Palm devices and the PSP for several years. I assumed the process would be similar for the Blackberry, but I could be wrong.

So I guess the underlying question is do I need media manager and this Roxio tool to be able to play video on a Sprint 8830? If it is indeed just bloatware - so be it, I'll pass. But I got the impression there was something "magic" about it beyond just moving files from PC to BB & encoding video. Yes / no/ maybe????

Thanks for any input.
