    magiccharm, Welcome to PinStack.

    First Things, Take the CD that came with your BB, if there was one and Install the Desktop Manager Software on to your PC. Also Load the Users Guide PDF onto your PC. Then I think you can use the media manager in Desktop Manager to transfer the files to your Pearl. If there wasn't a CD with your BB, you will need to to Download it from the Desktop link found Here. For the Pearl you definitely need DM 4.2

    magiccharm, dustman was just posting from his BB on the WAP version on this site. Try my suggestion first.

    I'm going to have to pass on this, I don't have a Pearl so don't really know all that needs to be done. Hopefully one of our Pearl Experts will jump in and help.

    Hi magiccharm,

    You said you installed the software. That should be a good step in the right direction. Now, you want to make sure that software is running. The software is called Desktop Manager. So please make sure Desktop Manager is now running.

    Step 2: Next, plug in your Pearl using the usb cable.

    Step 3: When your Pearl is plugged in, look at the Desktop Manager window. It should say "Connected" at the bottom of the Desktop Manager window.

    Step 4: There is an icon in the Desktop Manager window labelled "Media Manager". This is what you need to transfer your MP3s to your Pearl.

    Step 5: Double-click Media Manager to open it up.

    Step 6: On the left side of the Media Manager window, you need to navigate to the folder where your MP3s are stored. On the right side of the Media Manager, you need to navigate to the folder where you want to put your MP3s on your Pearl.

    Step 7: On the left side of the window, select the MP3s you want to transfer. Then click the arrow that is pointing to the right. This will copy the MP3 file from your computer to your Pearl.

    The pearl will not accept MP3's larger than 2.7MB unless you have a expandable memory card installed. If you want larger mp3's, then you are going to need to get a 1GB or smaller MicroSD card and put it into your device.

    Once that is done, when you hook up the device via USB to your computer, windows will automatically detect the memory card and ask if you want to open it.

    If you don't get that option, go to Start/My Computer and check for a memory drive. Should appear the same as if you were putting a memory stick in the USB port.

    Desktop Manager does NOT have to be opened to transfer mp3 and video to a device.

    But again, UNLESS you have an expandable memory card, Desktop Manager will NOT let you load any mp3 OVER 2.7MB.
