Go to options> Media Card> make sure mass storage is on, Connected, to either on or prompt. Plug in the BB, open mass storage and just drag and drop...

No, not through Desktop Manager. Double-click My Computer, and it will be listed as a removable disk with a drive letter. Double-click that icon and it opens the media card in Windows Explorer. Then you can drag and drop to it.

You can treat your bb just like a thumbdrive. cut, copy, paste between the media card and your computer.

What does Mass Storage mean? I transferred pics thru desktop manager from the BB to the media card, but was asked somewhere (either on the Bb or DM) about if I wanted Mass Storage on or off but didn't know what it meant

Mass Storage means it's using your media card like a disk drive. When you have Mass Storage enabled on the BlackBerry, you can't access the files on the media card -- can't play music or look at photos. You need Mass Storage enabled to drag and drop files, but otherwise you don't need it to be on. In Options > Media Card, you should have Media Card support on, Mass Storage Mode Support on. I have Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected set to prompt.

That way, when I'm charging the device while connected to the PC, I can still access media files, play songs, etc.
