    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Actually, this is a duplicate post. The one that everybody seems to be viewing and posting to us under the "General BlackBerry" forum. I am, by no means, a moderator. However, it seems logical that the thread should be here.

    In the mean time, if you want to post (or ask about) the new DM software, head on over there. It looks like a dozen or so stackers have downloaded it already.

    Re: BB Desktop Manager 4.2 (SP2) launched today...

    I would agree that this would be the most logical area...Ah well...Since this seems to be the most logical area, I'll place my opinions on the new software here

    I got it downloaded and installed without any issues...It ran setup for DM first, then started in on Roxio software. That part took the longest in all.

    I find that it's not as intuitive a program as the previous media manager. Before it was a simplified drag/drop interface, whereas now it's more of a full featured program.

    The interface itself after playing around a little bit does start to make sense.

    When copying music files, it does offer to convert them for optimal playback, however I copied over an MP3 as well as an AAC file and there was no difference in the file once it was moved (size, bit rate, etc stayed the same). There is also an option to customize the conversion, so you can select what type of file you would like it to be...I had it convert an AAC to an MP3 and it only cut the size down by a few kb.

    I haven't tested it with video yet, however it's on my list of things to do.

    Beyond the interface that's built into the DM for copying files over, it also installs the Roxio Media Manager program which has a variety of functions and utilities. Again, I'm only starting to explore - but I've been having fun with the PhotoSuite included...It's a simply program, but does decent work.

    The only thing that bugs me so far is that if you want the video functionality of Media Manager that you have to upgrade...at a cost of $69.99...Blah!

    Again - This is with only a bit of playing - I can't wait to see what else this can do!

    I can't even open the Media Manager I have the BB connected to the PC but when I click on it in DM, nothing happens. I don't have a media card installed yet but I wanted to see what it looked like.

    Desktop Manager Software v4.2 SP2 Released

    I see that the DM SP2 is now out.

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22

    Anyone know what the changes are as I cannot see a change log.

    Thanks

    Re: Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 released today

    Merged the two threads on this release. BUT I would like to know if this release has been pulled. When I tried to access the download, from the either of the links above, I get an error page stating I have reached this page in error. And when I try to get to the download link page from the Blackberry Desktop Software page, the page that loads doesn't have a link on it.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    that was happening to me too for some reason. I had to drag that link to a different web browser (from my FireFox I use mostly, to Safari) and it loaded just fine

    Well if IE7 and FireFox don't work, I'm in trouble.

    How do you install this? Just download the file and run it and thats it. Or is there something else I have to do? How is it different from 4.2.0.10?

    Yep download it, then just double click the downloaded file.

    As to differences, it has some added features for audio and video manipulation and transfer with media manager.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if people are having problems I still have the exe file and would be glad to share it. It would take a bit to upload though and due to the size I couldn't email it. If anyone has ideas let me know.
