Default Easy way to copy video?

Please Login to Remove!

The Roxio Media Manager isn't an option. With 4GB of ram on my system it's slow as death and when I tried to copy music it only took half. I could sync by putting my videos as a playlist in iTunes, but then I'd have to convert them from avi and that would take forever.

Any suggestions on how to easily copy videos to the memory card?

Welcome to the forums.

You could enable Mass Storage Mode on the device (Options > Media Card) and then connect your device to your PC. That should assign it a new drive letter. Then go into Windows Explorer and drag and drop the videos onto the media card.

Hi bobjohnson, I commented on an existing software called Format Factory that does a great job of formatting videos for the blackberry. Avg time to format is about 2 -2 1/2hrs for a movie. File size is anout 700mb to a full gig. here's the link
FormatFactory - great way to get DVD's on your BB
I also wrote more detailed instructions so if you want them let me know.
Good luck.

I just tried this and it worked perfectly. Before it was copying them to the on-board memory, the F: drive, but now it gave me the option to copy to a G: drive memory card.

Thanks for the help.
