Isn't there any file explorer available in 8100 to to view the files stored in memory card or the device?
I mean, if I want to explore the files stored in my memory card or device, how would I do it?

First you have to install the Desktop Manager. If you have the disk that came with your device that would be best because you are assured that version is supported by your carrier. Otherwise you can download the latest version and earlier versions here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code
Either way, once installed you will have the correct USB drivers for your BB and will be able to browse your media card using windows explorer. Also if you are going to use the DTM to manage your BB, make sure you turn on Mass Storage Mode Support by going to Settings > Options > Media Card. In addition, in the same menu I would say yes to Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected so it will not prompt you every time you connect.
An alternate method if you don't want to go through all of this and you have a media card reader, is to take the card out of your phone and put it in the card reader. The down side to that is that continually inserting and extracting the card will eventually wear it out and it's more hassle in my opinion.

Thanks for the reply. But I don't want to connect my phone to the computer just to explore my files. I am asking if there is any file explorer in the device itself. Can't I view my files which are stored in the memory card or device without connecting it to the computer?

Oh, What ???
BlackBerry doesn't have a file explorer !!!
I never knew that. But it's really shocking that a phone is not having any tool to explore its contents!
Anyway, thanks for the info Tanzim.

Yes, in fact, i was doing the same to explroe the files. But that's kind of workaround, NOT a complete file explorer. I wonder why they are not providing an explorer. Kinda strange!
Anyway, thanks for the response.
