    Pearl Media Player

    Advertisement



    I've found a couple of cool things about the media player that I did not know. I searched and couldn't find so sorry if everyone already knows this.

    1) Difference between "Play All" and "Play Folder"

    So you have some folders with mp3s on your pearl. You go into a folder and select "Play Folder" and it plays all the songs in that folder. You go into that same folder and select "Play All" and it does the same thing. If you back out one folder and see all of your folders with mp3s in them, you can't select "Play All" or "Play Folder" unless you have at least one song in that main folder. If you do this you can select "Play Folder" and it will play that one song, but if you select "Play All" it will throw all of the songs in all of the folders into the playlist. I love that.

    2) Show album art in Media Player

    In windows if you name a picture "folder" so it is folder.jpg or folder.jpeg it will show up as that folders picture when you are in thumbnails view. If you keep that picture in your folder when you copy it to the pearl, it shows up in the media player when you play a song in that folder. I've got a picture in all of my full album folders.

    Ahhh! I had the album cover in the player when playing Korn songs but nothing else. But all my mp3s are in the same folder! The album art only show up for korn songs so there's something else...

    Ok..........I loaded some mp3 tracks on the memory card but can't figure out how to access them on th epearl. If I go into media and hit from media card it doesn't show anything. Any clues appreciated.

    Just a few questions....

    Did you format the card with your BB? You should have folders for Music, Videos, Ringtons, Pictures.

    How did you load these songs, did you use media manager?

    Did you place these songs in the Blackberry/Music folder?

    Re: Pearl Media Player

    You have to put them in a folder created by the BB when the card was formated. Blackberry> Videos> Music>Ringtones> Pictures.

    Also when loading them, they will not show up until you "unplug" the usb cable. Hope that helps.

    Re: Pearl Media Player

    when I downloaded my music each mp3 went into it's own folder, now I have separate folders for each song, how do I condense?

    also, I need to redownload my OS for my pearl, I truly think that there's a file missing from the media player, how can i go about this?

    Seperate folders? Thats not right...how did you download these songs and where/how are you looking at them and seeing seperate folders?

    Why do you believe that you are missing a file? What is your current OS and provider?
