I am not sure what you can't figure out.

Try this: Options > Media Card > Enable Mass Storage.

From your PC now, you can move over to the Media Card mp3 files, wav files, etc.

Read up in the FAQ section and Stinsonddog's tips -- both linked in my signature below, and this: How do I add media files to my microSD card? - BlackBerryFAQ

How do I encode video for use on my device? - BlackBerryFAQ

Default still need help

Ok, every one probably thinks i'm a moron thats ok. Any way i followed the instructions i found doing it with out the BB Software enabled to be easier. I copied a song from "my music folder" on to the memory card, i see it on the card, looking at it on my computer but its not on the phone. is there a reason i cant see it. the music was purchased from Walmart on line. Do i have to format the card first, is there seting im not doing. Does the phone stay on the home screen or do i open Media firsst then music then copy there. I am able to bring pictures over from "my photos" on my computer. Again any help would be great.

Jeff, if you will unplug your BB from your USB after the copying, you will see the song on the media card. IF you have enabled Mass Storage on your Media Card, you cannot view its contents from the BB while plugged to USB.

Unplug and Look at Media > Music > Media Card.

Default did that

I did that to, im thinking three things one format the disc and see if it works. 2, forget it and go back to my Philips MP3 player and jsut use this as a phone, email and web browser, since my MP3 player had zero issues of saving music files. Last throw the pearl out the window.

Yea, formatting the card would be a good idea.

I know the SD card works, I use mine for music all the time.

Default was able to down load

I formatted my card. I had a friend send me some music that he got off itunes, he sent it via skype. I saved them to my music folder, then just copied and pasted to the BB music folder after attaching my phone, It worked. My thinking on this is, that since i downloaded from walmart all my music, it needs to be converted to somethng, not sure what. So tonight i will down load a few songs from itunes then see if it works.
Also if any one can give me a good sight i can try and download a video from that would be great.
Thanks again for your help.
