    I'm having trouble getting songs on my pearl

    Advertisement



    I just got a 1 gb micro sd with the adapter. I thought I was downloading the songs right, I was ripping my cd's to my windows library then taking the album and dragging and dropping it into my Blackberry folder under the SD category, but they're not there. I need help again lol... thanks people

    I just checked the properties and they're wma files. What does that mean and what should I do to get music on it?

    Basically, you chose the one digital music format the Pearl won't support. It prefers .mp3 and .aac (iPod) formats.

    Either download an MP3 player such as MusicMatch (Yahoo) or iTunes, and convert your .wma files to one of those formats.

    Also, make sure that when you transfer them to your micro SD, that you put them into the music subfolder. If you just transfer them over to the SD, outside the folders, your Pearl won't see them when you go to try and play them.

    Thanks for the advice on sending them to the music folder because I wasn't doing that. Where is the best place to download songs that are just in the mp3 format, Limewire?

    If you want to convert/rip your CD's to .mp3 use "Windows Media Player" (assumed you're using Windows). It works great!
