Re: Transferring Music from SD memory card into the blackberry memory

Hello,

 

The simplest way is, with a computer, to use Mass Storage Mode. That way, from your computer, you will have two additional drive letters (Windows) or volumes (MAC), one each for Device Memory and Media Card Memory. Then you can treat them as just another USB drive, and manage your files from the computer interface rather than the BB interface:

  • KB11879 What is mass storage mode
  • KB13564 How to enable or disable mass storage mode on the BlackBerry smartphone.

Good luck!

Hi and Welcome to the Community! (and apologies for the late reply...)

 

There indeed is a way, but is is much less convenient and much more complicated...but it's covered in this KB:

  • KB05478 Transfer files between the media card and device memory on a BlackBerry smartphone

Good luck!
