Even though files have the same extension (avi, mpg, etc) doesn't mean that they are using the same codecs. The blackberry only supports a limited number. Fortunatly, you can transcode exisitng videos by using one of the existing tools, like the free Blackberry video converter. See this link for details. Seabyrd Technologies - Blackberry Video Converter I think that you can also use the Roxio media player that comes free with Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.3 (free download from RIM site), but I haven't tried the transcoding.

You can see the differences using:

Use Gspot program to find out the video & audio codecs of some of the videos you're trying to transfer:
