    when you plug it into the usb, it shouldn't just pop up. you will have to open the blackberry desktop manager, and then use the media manager to transfer the music to and from the blackberry


    as for the msn on the blackberry, try using JiveTalk. i think it is the best instant messenger available. also, right now it is free. you can have you account from AOL, Google, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber all in the same program. it can be downloaded here: http://www.beejive.com/download/


    hope that helps

    did you never download the desktop manager when you first got the BB? mine is under the start menu > all programs > blackberry > desktop manager. (i think that is the default it saves it to, if it is installed). i think mine came on a disk. is there no options to install any software from the disk you have?

    do you remember how you got the songs on there before? i think the only ways to is through the desktop manager, or saving them directly to the microSD card, and then putting it back in the phone. i may be wrong though, but these are the only ways i know of.

    okay, i found the it under programs, but it says "disconnected and unavalible" i have plugged and unplugged the phone into the computer and it continues to say this. i also already tried to plug the memory card into the computer, it shows up under my computer but it only lets me view the songs and files. there are no options to delete or add new songs.

    hmm...try plugging it into the usb, and then opening the desktop manager. under options, click connection settings. next to connection, try to click "detect". see if that will "find" you BB.

    not a problem. glad you got it working!

    JiveTalk is pretty easy to install and get working to, but if you got any questions with that, don't hesitate to post.

    One question I am not sure about. Sorry. I'm sure someone has tried to put an itunes file on their BB. Hopefully someone has the answer for you.

    if the file is DRM, you won't be able to play it on the pearl. if it's just a regular MP3, then no problems
