You probably want to load "CDs" not "CD's", much like you probably drove many cars not "car's"...

Anyway, if you're trying to load music CDs into your BlackBerry, you will need the BlackBerry desktop manager with the Roxio media application which you can download from blackberry.com.

I don't know if it allows you to copy audio CDs straight into the device, so you may need to get a CD ripping application to rip the CD to MP3s first. Try Winamp for that.

I use a free program called CDex.
It will rip the songs to MP3, and then you can simply cut and past them to the music folder on your storage card or the phone's internal memory.

Your car example isn't germane since it isn't an acronym.

Pluralizing acronyms with an apostrophe is correct. The more modern approach is to omit the apostrophe. Acronyms that are typically regarded as words, such as laser, are generally not pluralized with an apostrophe.

Nope. Pluralizing acronyms, initialisms, or any other word with and apostrophe is never correct. Period.

"CD's" stands for "Compact Disc's", as in: "The CD's color is silver".
An apostrophe is used to show possession in this case.

If you use "CD's" to denote plural, then to write a sentence about multiple CDs that have the color silver, you'll have to write: "The CD's' color is silver"...two apostrophes...

Maybe you should do more research before you comment...
