yea i tried doing that, but it wont show up on the phone, like when i go to media manager it shows that its there but not in the phone, ive tried samething with mp3 and it works just fine, but for some reason not with videos. I also tried to connect my phone to computer, click on my computer and click on removable disc and fidn blackberry folder, and just drag the items from my video folder to my blackberry video folder, but it doesnt work. Also should i use mass storage mode when i do this? thanks

When you connect with desktop manager do you allow to access to media mass storage?

I think you should, but I am affraid I cant help you as I am newbie also.
What is strange, is that you should see the video folder even if the BB cant open it.

for some reason none of it worked, my problem is a little different from the problems those people are having,, i tried transfering the videos using windows explorer, and it shows that the videos are in the blackberry video folder, but for some reason my phone shows that are no videos. i have no problems transfering music, its just the videos. Im thinking i need to convert it from wmv to something else. somehow i got one video to work few days ago but i dont know how i did it.

Having never encoded a video for my handheld before, I'm afraid I'm not the person to help you with this. Sorry.

In other words.... For OUTPUT you need to set it to avi
For INPUT you can slect any type of media file wmv for example
