I think I understand your question in there....

Try deleting the vendor.xml file located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader

Then try the update again.

Hi -- Media Manager only works with handhelds using OS 4.2+. 4.2 is only available for BBs with 64mb or more of memory, which is 7130 and newer. Your 7290 has only 32mb of memory, and AFAIK the latest (and last) operating system for that device is 4.1.0.377.

However, there are 3rd party aps to manage pictures, so you can get pictures off of your computer to your 7290. I use Ascendo Photos, which has free and trial versions floating around. Wonderful program.
