    im new to blackberries...so dont kill me...

    i have a pearl(obviously) and i loaded some music on it on the memory card i have....and in the desktop manager software it shows that the music is there.....however.....when i actually try to access the files on the phone they do not show up. and on the phone it looks as though the memory card is almost empty(except for a few pictures).

    how do i load it correctly? it seems like the desktop software doesnt actually put the song on the card.

    The BlackBerry will play NON DRM PROTECTED .aac, .amr, .m4a, .midi, .mp3, or .wav files. If you're trying to play something you purchased from a service like iTunes, you're probably out of luck.

    they are MP#'s...but they are definitly not protected music...most of it was ripped from cd's and converted....and the others were downloaded.

    If your phone is still connected to your computer you cannot access the MicroSD card from the phone.

    If the songs are in the Music folder on your MicroSD card they should show up by going to the music folder from your phone.

    If they are not in this folder try going to Media then hit the menu button to the left of the trackball and select Explore and try to find them.

    If this doesn't help try pulling the battery and leave it out for a minute.

    Have you formatted the MicroSD card using the phone?

    What kind of files are they?

    That's what I had to do. Once I hit explore then blackberry I was able to find them.
    Good luck.
    Let us know how you make out
