    you dont even need to use the desktop manager. If you have a micro sd card then all you need to do is move the music directly onto the card through my computer and it should play. I have around a gig of and many videos that work and i never once used desktop manager.

    Just connect your bb to the computer via usb and make it look as if its a thumb drive and then transfer files over to the mediacard. Other then that you should not have any issue playing the files.

    It could be possible that your card isn't formatted to your phone. Which just means there aren't any folders for specific files for your phone to find.

    So when you access the phone through my computer like it was previously suggested make sure you have folders that designate the what you want in that folder (e.g. Music, ringtones, pictures) ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    did you get your issue resolved? If not, please post back the following info:

    1. Do you have an SD card or are you using device memory?
    2. What steps did you take to transfer music that did not work?
    3. What file type are you trying to transfer.

    Hello there,
    I have just joined specifically to find the answer to this question. Please excuse me if I am not doing it right! I downloaded WMA files onto my 8100- I can find them when I hit explore, but am unable to play them. I bought an SD card yesterday- can anyone tell me how I can listen to the music?
    Thanks for your patiences

    Did you format your card?
    If there are pictures there, can you see the pictures?
    Where are you getting the songs from?
    What are you using to transfer?

    Do you have the Desk top manager on your computer? Should have come on the CD with the phone. If not, search it and you can download it.

    Then, plug in your phone and turn on the Desk Top Manager. Click on Media Applications. Then Roxio will start. Make sure your BB is selected in the bottom screen, and the folder for your songs in the top screen. Select them all, and then "drag" them down....it will ask if you want to convert...say yes....and there you should go!
