    You can shrink mp3s by reducing the quality, however I suggest getting the MicroSD chip so you can put any size mp3's on it !

    yeah, i thought about buying a 2gb card (i have the rogers OS), but figured that I will never need 2gb of movies/music/pictures.

    I stuck 100 songs on last night...took up about 300GB or so at around 3M per song.

    yes, so i guess a 1gb card will fit about 300 songs give or take.

    I don't think I'd go anywhere over 100 songs, so the rest of the space is for my porn videos.

    the 2gig card works if you upgrade your OS. I was using the o2 OS, and I'm sticking with it seeing that the T-mo update is pretty much the same.

    I actually just filled it with 1.65gig of music.

    Have you recently used the Desktop Manager? Did it work before you used the Desktop Manager?

    If it did then go to this thread and check out #7
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._mini_faq.html

    Reasons and directions are included in that thread.

    Let us know how it goes.

    2GB card works fine, i'll never need all the space, but handy because i keep editing MP3's into ringtones/message tones and popping them onto it.
