How to add the media files to SDCard manually

Hi,

 

I am writing a player application for Blackberry devices.

 

My requirement is to play the media files from SDCard.

 

I dont know how to put the media files manually into the SDCard.

 

Can you please suggest me how to do this?

 

Help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Manoj.

Re: How to add the media files to SDCard manually

You can turn Mass Storage Mode on (under Options | Media Card). Doing so will allow the microSD card to show as an extra drive letter under My Computer. You can drag and drop media files into their respective folders afterwards. You can read more about it here -

Hi  jmmb80,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

First of I want to test my application on Blackberry emulator.

 

I am using the software JDE 4.3.0.

 

Now I want to add .3gp files to SDCard in the emulator.

 

How could I do this?

 

Thanks,

Manoj.

Not sure about that one. I've never used the media card on the simulator before. I just tried but it didn't show up as an extra drive letter. I'm not sure if it's not enabled for the simulator. I'm sure someone with more experience with the simulators will help you out though  Smiley Happy

Re: How to add the media files to SDCard manually

U have two options to do this........

 

1: Use desktop  managers  Roxio Media manager to add files to SD card bymaking mass storage mode ON as explained above.

 

2: Since u r using JDE 4.3 go to Edit>>Pref>>Simulator under memory tab u can simulte SDCard as a folder on local system.We have a knowledge base artcle on that too.

 

Hope it find useful and solve your problem..
