Media > Menu > Explore > Media Card > then navigate to the correct folder

Note that you can't install games to the media card.

You cannot install/run apps from the SD card. All you can do use it for is pictures, ringtones and music. You can also store files and email attachments there.

Apps must be installed on the device itself. And keep in mind, onboard memory is at a premium.

Yeah, if it's a JAD file, you need to go to the link with your BlackBerry Browser. And it will automatically install.

If it's a ZIP file, you need to UNZIP it on your computer and use BlackBerry Desktop Manager on your computer to install it.
