    OTA third party is downloaded using the BB browser.
    not through media manager.
    Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!

    Or through Desktop Manager, the Application loader, not media manager.

    You cannot load jad/jar files through your desktop manager. It's only OTA. Use your browser.

    Sorry Red, but you can downlaod and install jad files other than OTA. I am copy/pasting the instructions here:

    [FONT=Verdana]Download the jad/jar file onto your desktop.
    Check it has the right extension by right click and check properties on the file. The download might need unzipping.
    Connect your Blackberry to Desktop Manager
    Open your Media Manager application in Desktop Manager
    In the right hand window make a new folder in My Blackberry/Device Memory/Games
    Using the right side of your media manager copy your JAD/JAR files into the folder.

    You must follow EXACTLY these instructions

    Open the Media application on the blackberry
    Press the left button next to the trackball
    Click explore
    Track down to Device Memory
    Press the left button next to the trackball
    Click Open
    Track down to your /Games Folder
    Press the right button next to the trackball
    Click Open
    Select the JAR file
    Select "Download"

    The Application will load on to your Blackberry and is now available in your application menu.

    I've also found using this method that I can load to my media card games/HTML files/Text files/PDF and read them but you must use the EXPLORE, OPEN menus to see them otherwise the Pearl does not see the files.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]I have done this previously and installed and played some cool games on my Pearl![/FONT]

    Re: jad files & roxio media

    that is all cool
    this is what i was planing to do but the big problem i am facing here is the media manager and roxio menu can just read media files, they can not read jar or jad files
    i mean when i open the media manager or roxio media i can not see jar or jad files on the left hand side, i can just show media

    Totally forgot about this...cool. Good luck kids. I think it would be easier just to have a data plan. Hope it all works out.

    Any idea how to do this on the 8300/Curve? Media Manager doesn't even copy the files into the folder. After asking if you want to convert the files or leave them the same, Media Manager doesn't do anything with the files. In fact, the opnly way to copy files over is to drag and drop. You get the little plus sign showing that it recognizes that you have files to drop, but it doesn't do anything after the convert or leave the same box. Anyone? Anythng?
