    Moving Media to BB Pearl

    Advertisement



    I just purchased a Pearl. Everything seems to work well with the exception of two items:

    1) When I take a photo, I cannot send it in any way. It seems to time out whether I am emailing it or SMSing it.

    2) I can't get videos onto my BB. I have not yet added a micro card. When I go into the Media Manager, I only have two folders (Ringtones and Photos). I've tried creating more in the Media manager, but it does not show up on my BB. Do I need expanded memory to do this ? It doesn't appear to say that in any documentation I've seen.

    For the first one try hard resetting your pearl (take the battery out wait 30 seconds, reinsert).

    You can right click on the left side of media manager then select new folder and make one called video on the device memory.

    Even with this you will only be able to put short clips 2.8mb or less, also with putting files on the device memory you limit space for contacts etc..

    Now that you got your clip on there go to media icon on your BB and if you dont see the video folder hit menu and select explore and find it that way.

    cahoone, Welcome to PinStack.

    You do have a BB data Plan activated for your Cellular Account don't you? Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Also make sure that the video will play on your Pearl. I'm no expert and infact have only ever transfered one video onto mine but BlackBerry Video seemed to sort out the problem with my .mov perfectly.

    OK, the explore option worked great.... however, now I'm getting a message saying "Unable to display file /Device Memory/Home/user/Video/filename.mpg" I tried it with several different mpg and avi files. Any thoughts ?
