Default Music and movies downloaded to the 8300

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, here it is. How do I get music from a cd and movies from a dvd onto the 8300? If there is a knowledge base article I haven't found it. I have found that info for an 8800, is it the same? Please help.

Thank you

It's really all the same.

Have you looked at the FAQs and Media section here in this forum?... lots of info at both.

So what you are saying that I need to copy the CD to a MicroSD card and then to the Blackberry?

No, I wasn't saying that, I was saying it was "really all the same" for the 8800 and 8300. Same process.

How do I add media files to my microSD card? - BlackBerryFAQ
How do I encode video for use on my device? - BlackBerryFAQ
What video and audio formats are supported?? - BlackBerryFAQ

Media Center - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community
Supported media files on the BlackBerry Smartphone

Sorry, if I wasn't clear earlier, I was directing you to look at those places for the information you needed. These links are more direct.

The only difference between conversion for the 8800 versus 8300 is that you can convert DVD/Videos to 320x240 resolution. The Curve's media player can display a video full-screen, whereas the 8800's media player software won't let you get rid of the menu bar at the bottom...so most users used a smaller image size.

Otherwise, it's identical. I just moved all 3 Indiana Jones, both Underworld movies and both Kill Bill movies to my 2gig card...at 320x240 with good sound quality, they are about 200 to 250megs each, MP4 format, h.263 codec (native to Curve). I'm on a Mac and use Vhub. My settings are:

Video: 320x240, bitrate=250, framerate=15
Audio: 22050hz, bitrate=32

Keep in mind that given the tiny screen, you don't need a high framerate. And darker, fast-moving movies (like Underworld) won't look as good as brighter movies. Still very watchable for long trips, however.
