Default having trouble opening attachments

Please Login to Remove!

This is my first bb, and I have Verizon's Curve. I'm still learning. Why is it that I can't open video attachments like .wmv? Or is the curve not capable of doing this action?

Your info is appreciated.

No wmv file as an attachment, nope. You can load it from the PC to the BB.

I've done a video recording (on my bb) and emailed it to myself and still it did not allow me to open the attachment. How is that?
