Default PDF files

I copied some PDF files from my computer to the BB Curve 8900's SD Card. How can I access and view these documents? I stored them in the folder :

G:\BlackBerry\documents

G is the SD Card's drive letter in Windows XP.

Do I need to download some PDF software to read these files?

you need docs to go premium to view pdf files.
otherwise email yourself them and they are then openable.

How can I do this? Do I have to pay?

yup
im not aware of a free pdf viewer.

for some reason pdf's in emails as attachments can be opened, but pdf's as documents need an application.

Docs to go works very well. It's not cheap but allows you to view .pdf, word docs, powerpoint and excel files. Unfortunately the browser does not do a great job of displaying pdfs.
