8330 File System?

I currently have a company-supplied Treo 700W.  Despite its numerous quirks and flaws, one of its outstanding features for me is the existence of a windows-like file system where downloaded attachments (or synch'd files) can be stored in memory or an SD card.  My company is pushing us toward BB Curve 8330 devices, and I'm probing to see if the 8330 has a file system.  I've read many of the messages here including some really excellent URLs supplied by tanzim regarding downloading, viewing, and even editing various attachments.  It's still unclear to me, though, if I can actually save a file in BB memory or a microSD card.  TIA.

Re: 8330 File System?

When you receive an attachment in an email:

 

Open the email

Scroll to the attachment

Push the trackball to open

Once the attachment is open....you will then be able to view the attachment

Hit the menu key again and click "save attachment"

You will then be prompted to save it in device memory or "media card"

I save to a media card as not to use the device memory....this can slow the device when saving numerous attachments.

 

Hope this helps,

Re: 8330 File System?

Thanks, John.  That's exactly what I hadn't been quite able to pin down!  All the articles I had found talked about everything but actually *saving* a document on board or on a card.  Jim

Re: 8330 File System?

I'm surely out of focus, but microSD cards, miniSD cards and SD Cards have a FAT16 or FAT32 file system. That means it can be read and written by many OSses like Windows 98, Linux of MacOSX easily (as opposed to NTFS).

Hello,

 

be aware that if you save Microsoft Office documents (xls, doc, ppt), you will be able to read them from your media card only if you have a Handheld OS 4.5 or higher. Most people have a HH OS 4.2, so they can view Excel files only from attachments.

 

Handheld OS 4.5 is said to be available for all carriers by fall 2008.

Re: 8330 File System?

Good day to all,

 

I just wanted to give a heads up on a cool program for BB that will allow you greater use and manipulation of any files on your device. It's called Rove Mobile File Manage and it's free (They also have some other useful programs, however, you do have to pay for those) If interested, go to: http://www.rovemobile.com/products/ I hope someone can find this useful! Thanks.

Re: 8330 File System?

Knowwish,

go to OPTIONS-ADVANCED OPTIONS-HOUST ROUTING TABLES menu key REGISTER. You will get an email telling you it's registered. Go to your BIS site and resend service books. Give it 10 minutes, do a battery pull with the phone ON leave it out for a minute, and replace. Let the phone reboot for 1-3 minutes.

See if the problem is fixed.

Thanks,

Re: 8330 File System?

Thanks Bifocals,

 

I tried the procedure (hope I made correctly, please explain better "...do a battery pull with the phone ON leave it out"...) but no changing.

SW of my handy is 4.2.2.184, Desktop Manager is 4.2.2.14.

 

Thanks.
