    No, the best way is drag and drop (mass storage)

    like lowrider said, enable mass storage. this will map the microSD card in your pearl as a drive on your computer...

    Is this just easier to manage or is it faster?

    depends on what you mean by faster... the transfer speed will be the same... but due to it being easier to manage, you'll spend less time on this task.

    Do I actually need to install Desktop Manager at home. My work has computers protected with Adminstrator rights, and the Blackberry is configured for work lotus notes. I just want to be able to play music and use data storage. Do I loose anything else not having Desktop Manager????

    without desktop manager, you most likely will not have the blackberry device manager. without the bb device manager driver set, your computer will most likely not recognize the pearl and won't map the microSD card as a drive.

    download and install desktop manager. you will be fine. it will not change your lotus notes configuration. just make sure you do NOT sync with your home PC.

    Music is not installed it is copied or written to another device...why people always do mistake in IT language....you can do it by enabling mass mode storage from
    Options>Advanced>Media card. click the trackball and again click a menu appears enable mass mode storage...then connect the phone and a removable disk will appear in the my computer section...open it and then drag songs...in the music section of your blackberry

    lol! the one i hear a lot is, 'i downloaded the program to my hard drive,' when they really mean to say, 'i installed the program.' (i'm an i.t. guy by trade. took me a while to cut through that one!)

    okay, maybe not a lot, but at least 2 people i know use that terminology, even though i've repeatedly corrected them.
