Re: import files

Several ways to do that...

 

You can attach the file to an esmail, and email the file to yourself. From there, download the attached file to your Media Card.

 

You can use your BlackBerry Media Card in Mass Storgae Mode and connect to your PC via the USB and from there just drag and drop the files to the Media Card as a removable drive.

1. Go to Options >> Media Card
(some themes or BlackBerrys may call this "Settings >> Media Card")
2. Check the following settings (if they are not listed this way, then change to reflect the following:
a) Media Card Support: On
b) Mass Storage Mode Support: On
c) Auto Enable Mass Storage: Yes
3. Save the settings and exit

No options for mass storage mode support and auto enable mass storage.

Re: import files

[ Edited ]

Ok, I found the menu but I don't have the "mass storage" box.  I only have compression and media card. 

 

MY problem is that.....I had previously emailed myself 3 exel files, and successfully downloaded them and had them on my BB.  That is until I had to have the OS completely reloaded.  Now, even though I had never changed anything to start out with, I can't open those files.  And I have deleted them and re-emailed them to myself but now I cannot download any files.
