    Going out of my mind

    Advertisement



    Well..I'm new to Mac AND Blackberry. I have the Curve and a Macbook and I just can not figure out how to get music on my phone. I have the files on my computer but I don't know how to transfer them. When I plug in the USB is says something like insufficent power. I have the pocketmac but I don't see any options for transfering media files. I'm so lost. Does anybody know a site or something that has step by step instructions?

    Do you have a MicroSD Card? If so, on your BB, go to Options, Media Card, Mass Storage Mode: ON

    If you dont have a memory card, you will have to transfer the media using your Desktop Manger.

    If you get an sd card it will be much easier to transfer media files.

    You're gonna need a micro sd card to load music, ringtones, etc.
    You can't use desktop manager on Mac but you can try Missing Sync or Pocketmac. I use MS but pocketmac is free.
    But you don't need either of these programs to put music on your phone. Get the media card and when you plug in your BB turn on mass storage mode. After that, you can drag and drop your music into the BB. PM me if you need more help. I don't have the ame phone as you, but it's all the same on the Mac ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Because you don't have DM installed.

    Once you have a media card, when plugged in; your Mac will recognize this as an additional drive and open up a window. All you have to do is browse to your media folder on your computer and open it.
    With the two files open hold the left click button of your mouse down over the files and drag your media files into the BB file. Your media files will now be on your BB.

    Re: Going out of my mind

    My phone showed that same message for a while but it changed. It may have been after I installed missing sync. But like I said before, pocketmac is free so maybe it'll work after you install that. But you don't need DM, I never had it and my BB charges just fine.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Well I used the software that they give you with the phone and it installed pocketmac but I don't understand how it works. And I can't find anything about transfering media files on it.

    Re: Going out of my mind

    Your BB will show as a drive and if you double click it there will be a folder for the BB and inside that there will be folders for ringtones, videos, etc. You can hold the mouse down over the music file and drag it to the BB folder of your choice. (just a regular click because a Mac mighty mouse doesn't left click)but remember to get a micro sd card in order to do all this.I'll help through pin pr BB messenger if need be.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
