I have the sprint 8330 blackberry curve. I am trying to download from my home computer in real player songs I have downloaded to my phone. I do not have a media card. Do I need one and where does it go on the phone?
I tried doing it today and nothing worked. I attached the phone with the usb cable.

Now we have some thing to work with
I would STRONGLY recommend a media card. You will save a ton of device memory and that will allow your
phone to run smoothly in all aspects. With the media card you can have all the using and other media files you
want. I've about 800 songs, and I have a BUNCH more I need to put on. One of the best parts is you can
plug the BB to the OC and in My Computer it looks like a flash drive. Then you can just drag and drop your
media to the correct folder. Quick efficient and without program restrictions.
On the BB go to options/about/look for your version (4,x,x,xxx) send it to me and I can tell you how much
memory you can put into the device.

Here is the chart pick out your OS and that is the size card you can get for your device:
|BlackBerry Device Software||Media Card Size Limit|
|BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.0||Up to 2 GB|
|BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1||Up to 4 GB|
|BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2||Up to 4 GB|
|BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.0||Up to 8 GB|
BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.0
|Up to 8 GB|
|BlackBerry Device Software 18.104.22.168 and later||Up to 16 GB|
|BlackBerry Device Software 4.6.0 and later||Up to 32 GB|
Here is the procedure to install, with video:
Here is the list of supported media files:
The bad news:
RealPlayer is not currently compatible with the iPhone, iTunes, or Blackberry. However, we are always working to improve our products, so you may want to check back occasionally for future updates to RealPlayer.
DRM protected iTunes cannot be played or moved to Blackberry, You would have to buy DRM free tunes.
Now I heard there are programs on the internet that strip the DRM info off the songs, of course I don't know anything
about that. COUGH COUGH (FREEMymp3.com) Cough! Excuse me.
Thanks,Please remember to resolve your thread. Put the check mark in the green box that contained your answer! Thanks

I'll be glad to tell you that i am willing to give you a specific guide. i also have a blackberry mobile phone that i use it for commercial use,surely i always download music to my mobiles. media card is the key to downloading music. Another software you can take as a reference is Streaming Music recorder. For example, you can use it to download lady gaga music and save to your blackberry by connecting to the computer.
