When I plug my BB into the USB port to charge I get a pop-up on the BB that asks if I want to turn mass storage mode on. What does this do exactly? I always select "no".
I have a 8GB card in it, if that helps.

It's just asking if you want to be able to see the memory card on the computer (so you can add or remove files on it).
You can find more information about it here:

It asks this question because it depends on what you are doing at that time. If you are going to be loading/removing applications, songs, pics, or videos to your Micro SD from you computer/desktop manager, you need to turn this mode on by selecting 'YES'. But, you will be unable to access these things directly on your phone while in this mode.
But, if you are simply charging the phone or accessing files stored on your phone and not your 'mass storage device', and want to be able to pick the phone up and listen to songs, or some other app on the SD card, select 'NO' and you will be able to see these things on your phone while charging or syncing on your computer.
