    I believe that it needs to be in MP3 format to play on the Pearl. You will need to convert it to MP3 before loading on your BB.

    Re: Help with mp3 in bb pearl

    Yeah, there are specific formats the bb pearl will only play. AVI for movies and mp3 for music. I guess that is my only complaint regarding the pearl. I have tons of movies in mpeg and now I have to convert them into AVI's before watching them on my pearl at work.
    Love my first BlackBerry (Pearl)!

    I use dbpoweramp converter to reduce the size of my mp3's. Try it out if you want.

    Audio formats are not an issue in this case. I've successfully upload wma, wav, MP3 and m4a to my black berry. The best way for me to compress the MP3s is to use the conversion option on iTunes. Just make sure that before doing so you go to options and cotumize the Stereo Bit Rate to 56Kbps. A new copy of te mp3 files you sellected will appear under the original, then you just drang it into your BB media dir.

    Now the real error happens with some files. Though being is m4a, wam or mp3 when I try to transfer then to my BB it loads entirely and then give me the "General error E:1008" Now why is that?

    I just noticed that songs with files name having special (non-english) character are one of the causes for that E:108 error. Also when importing files with the same file names dont rename themself or get overwritten but gives you another "Device communication error."


    Quick Tip:
    By converting/compressing sounds files using iTunes then importing them directly from the iTunes library it also transfer the songs' Artwork/Album Logo to your BB. It make it look phenomenal!

    Just for the record.

    You need a memory card in your device....Otherwise it has a limit of 2.83MB and doesn't let you put any music/videos on it

    Yeah That's partially true. I haven't been able to upload any videos into my BB so far using only the internal MEM, though I have sucessfully uploaded 11 of my Fav song into my BB. I have not yet tried to upload more though.

    Re: Help with mp3 in bb pearl

    I just recently got my BB pearl and just figured how to put the mp3 player into the BB device.
    First, get an microSD memory card of any size.
    1. Insert the memory card and wait for your device turn on or turn it on.
    2. Go to the Full Menu bar
    3. Go to Options
    4. Go to Advance Options
    5. Go to Media Card
    From there, make sure that "Media Card Support" is On and "Mass Storage Mode Support" is Off.
    If you have anything in your memory card, you have to let the device format it, to do that, click on the Full Menu bar and look for the options that says "Format Card or Memory".
    6. Make sure you have downloaded the Desktop Manager.
    7. Connect your BB pearl device to your computer.
    8. Open up the Desktop Manager
    9. Click on Media Manager
    From there, you should be able to click on Media Card folder and open the "blackberry" folder and then you should find the music/pictures/videos/ringtone folder and add your items into the folder.

    Hopefully, that will work for you!
