    Question Media Card

    Advertisement



    I have a 2GB sd card in my pearl and I was wondering how I can programs from my pearl memory on to there. Also when I put things on my phone through Desktop manager how do I put it right on to the SD card?

    Programs can only be installed on the device memory. The SD card can only be used to store music, pictures, ringtones and video.

    Sorry sarge you can't put program onto the card. Only media. Like pics, music, movies, etc.

    All programs go into the phone memory directly.

    Use mass storage mode to put stuff on the card.

    Go to Options, Advanced Options, Media Card and make sure Mass Storage Mode Support is ON.

    Hook your blackberry up to the computer via USB cable and go to My computer and it should show up as another drive.

    It does not matter if you add a 1g or 2g. Your format option is on your phone - OPTIONS-ADNANCED-MEDIA CARD

    Make sure that support is set to on and hit the menu key and you will get a Format Card option.
