Thanks for replying so quickly. I did not realize that the music from my CD had to be converted to MP3 format; just figured putting them on the computer was enough. There is still a great deal that I need to know about computers, even though I am online a great deal it is generally just the usual basic stuff. I am learning though, bit by bit, have managed to muddle my way through a lot of the Blackberry stuff but the ringtones just defeated me completely. I had a Palm Treo smartphone prevously but the most important part of it was my SmartList to Go program and databases, which are no longer supported by the maker Dataviz and which do not of course transfer to the Blackberry. I need something that I can use in their place. At present I do not intend to even use e-mail on my phone but will check out at least linking it to Windows Live instead of Outlook; I am sure there must be something in the online instruction book about that.
Thanks for the help; it is much appreciated.

There are other ways to convert your music to MP3, but I find iTunes quite straight forward albeit it can be a little daunting like anything new.
One the reasons I use it is so that I can copy the music to a recordable disc for use in the car, thus preserving my CD's is pristine condition.

If you have no need to be syncing calenders, then Outlook is a complication you can happily live without.
The easiest way to set up your email is to do it on PC and login in to your BIS account and you even get your carrier to do it or to walk you through it.

I have WindowsXP Pro .Earlier when I connected my Curve to the USB port after selecting the files(usually music) a window opened up listing the various drives on my computer.When I clicked on the command 'Copy 'after selecting 'blackberry' in the drives field ,the files got copied on the Curve.I have reformatted the 'c'drive on the desktop lately.Now I cannot transfer the music because the MY Computer window does not recognise the Curve.I would appreciate if someone can tell me how can I do this.
