    3GP Movies dont work on my Pearl!

    Advertisement



    So here is the problem. I have downloaded several 3GP movies, saved them too my memory card, then when I try to play them my bb says "incorrect format". Any ideas? I really need some help making this work. Thank you.

    If they're protected by DRM, the BlackBerry can't play them.

    Sorry for the repetition! I clicked the Post Quick Reply button and nothing seemed to happen, so I clicked it again, and again, and again...

    You may need to burn to a cd. ????

    There are also drm removal tools available that claim to fix the issue. This is still a work in process.

    there are some at www.blackberrymovies.com that work if u convert them with Roxio Media Mgr (but the file size gets HUGE when u do it that way)

    It seems they should already be formatted for use on a BB at that page but I can't get them to play without conversion

    Go here for all video & audio formats supported. Also has optimal settings when converting video & audio.

    My pearl supports a certain type of .avi

    I used a free program called "Blackberry Video" to convert it, and then I transferred it over.

    I think you can find the program on Download.com
