    Mass storage the way your computer can access the files on the memory card on your Blackberry. You can transfer pictures and music files this way. It should pop up on your computer like a USB disk drive. Just before you unplug, make sure to right click on the icon on your computer and do a safe eject and nothing will get screwed up.

    depends on whether you want to use the card as a portable flash drive or load files using windows explorer (drag/drop) rather than the roxio media manager.

    Exactly!

    In addition, for those of you on AT&T, they now have two choices of desktop mgr available for download.

    The original one that contains Roxio Media Manager, and a version without Roxio.

    I do not like Roxio, so I was delighted to find the choice w/out it.
