    Please help the newb

    Advertisement



    ok... so i just got my blackberry yesterday...

    unfortunately for me... it has been very hard to operate. I am finally getting the hang of the text messaging... but as far as putting files on my phone. getting my memory chip to read correctly and all of that good stuff I am struggling.

    so any advice would be great.

    it starts with me originally having the cingular 8525. i invested in a small memory stick of 512 mb. i put songs on and all and it work fine. so when i use my memory chip on this phone it wont recognize any of the songs and resulted in me deleting them all from the chip. So now when i look at the blackberry device manager it still only recognizes as me having 19 mb of free space.

    so i guess what i am asking is:

    1) is this typical for the blackberry not to recognize my memory stick if so... how do i fix it.

    2) how do i get songs on my chip.

    3) how do i access files transfered to my memory stick such as themes and what not.

    4) and if anyone could simply recommend any programs that may be nice for me to have... like a gps system... themes... games... and aol instant messanger or something.

    thank you all in advance

    hmm make sure when you connect your phone it asks you for the mass storage option. if you press yes it wont show your memory card in desktop manager, but it can be found in my computer. If you press no it should show up on desktop manager. the just use media manager to load mp3 on there .

    please discuss in more detail. i have tried it both ways. it still only shows 19 mb available when i already deleted all the programs. then when i try to transfer a song on both options mass storage yes and no. there is an error transfering the song. so this really isnt working for me

    We'll start here first:

    Did you format the card?

    Options
    Advanced Options
    Media Card
    Hit Menu
    Format Card

    then the card should show up.

    There should be no reason an MP3 isn't playing. I don't know what to tell you.
