Do you show folders on the Pearl when you open up the media card? There should be one for music, pics, video, ringtones. You need to "turn on" the chip on the Pearl. See below. Doing the below procedure will create the necessary folders on the card.
Also, only certain video will work. Go to my thread on BlackBerry Video Creator and download my samples. See if they work.

To set the Pearl up:
Turn <Media Card Support> to 'on'
Turn 'on' <Mass Storage Mode Support>
Say 'Yes' to <Auto Enable Mass Storage...>
click <escape> key to get to <save> option
Scroll to 'yes' and click trackball to save the settings.
