Red face Installing 3rd party apps

Please Login to Remove!

This is probably a dumb question, but how do I install JAR or JAD files on my new 8310? Desktop manager only searches for ALI and ALX files. The sites where I'm D/L the JAR's claim that these particular apps should work with the Curve.

What am I missing? FYI, it's the Zelda re-make I want. Need something to waste more time!

I since Googled a different solution. Use the DM Media Manager to create a folder (I names mine AppLoaders). Transfer the jar files into that folder. Then on the BB, go to the Media icon & select Explore. Browse to the jar file & click download. Install then worked perfectly.

Now a followup question. In doing some more reading, I kept seeing something called "Mass Media Storage" or something like that. It sounded like that would allow you to drag&drop to the BB straight from Windows Explorer. Anyone know how to make that work, or am I misunderstanding what it is?

Move the .jar file to the memory card and install from there

if i install an app from the microSd card, does it mean that it will be installed in the card and not on the phone memory?

unlike S60 Phones, all apps installed on a BB are installed to the device
