Default loadig/opening pdf,txt files in 8820

Please Login to Remove!

Hello and thank you for reading

This problem has been probably addressed already with users of other BB models too.

I connect my BB 8820 to my computer through USB, press yes in the "enable mass storage" question and copy/paste a txt and pdf file to a folder I created inside the folder pictures. I tried creating a folder alone in the BB but I couldn't see it as when you go through Menu->Media-> you only have 4 options (ringtones,music,videos,pictures)

The problem is that the folder documents appears to be empty. The files that I copied there are not shown.

Also, if you go to Menu->Media-> pictures (for example) and press the menu button then choose options you see
Media Options - Device Memory Limit 12MB (which can also be changed to 15MB)
Could that be a problem when loading a pdf file which is 30-40 MB ?

Thanks in advance for the help

First, your BB is not going to open a PDF which is not attached to an email (and at 30-40MB in size!). BeamBerry will do that, you can try that application.

You CAN see the folder you created at Media > Menu > Explore...etc.
