Default Video Conversion

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all, I'm new to this Blackberry thing, purchased an 8130 a week ago.
I had two questions, one is what is the max capacity of media card I can use?
And two, when transfering video files to phone through the media manager,
do I have to let the software convert the file, or can I just copy to disc?

I think I'm going to like this phone. I was going to get the Q but held out till USCellular came out with the Pearl. I like this better. I also read on here about
v4.5 firmware for this phone and the list of things you get with it. The one thing that seemed odd was the playlist thing. My phone has v4.3 but has the playlist option. Thanks for any input.

basically speaking, your OS version 4.3 is the same thing as 4.5 to come. In reality RIM just bumped the numbers up to 4.5 as a PR kind of thing. So yes, many of the 4.5 features you read about, you will already have.

Media card:
What type and size Media Card can I use in my device? -
You should convert the video, and the best is the one recommended at this site:

The playlist feature in 4.5 includes something called "automatic playlist generation" which is more/different than we have w/the 8130 Pearl and OS 4.3 right now.

Supposedly you can use any memory card up to 256 GB (once they are available). 8 GB cards are well documented to work by users here, I haven't seen anyone posting about using a larger card yet, but based on what RIM has said, larger should be fine.
