How do I......?

How does one dowload the free games from the BB owners lounge?  I save them to my hard drive and go into  application loader, but it doesn't see or recognise the files.

Can you use your browser to go to the owner's lounge download section and download the games from there? If not check out this site. It has direct links to download games from your BlackBerry browser: http://www.bbgeeks.com/blackberry-games/170-free-games-for-your-blackberry-88159/

So using the browser from the BlackBerry doesn't work?

That's saving to your computer. I said using the actual Browser on the BlackBerry. Once you're in the browser, display your menu, and select Go To and type in the address to the webpage you want to go to. Once your on the download page most games have a Download button you can click on to install the game directly on the device (called Over the Air installation so you don't ever need to download the game to your computer)

I cannot access the lounge from my BB browser, it comes up with an error every time.  I have tried typing in the web address, cutting and pasting etc etc.  thanks for your help, but I have to go do some work, will check back later see if there are any answers.
