THANX Casper34 for the following:-
Here is the EASIEST way to put music, video, pictures, files, whatever on your Blackberry (For other file types just navigate to the appropriate folder). Here i am using "Music" as an example.
From your Homescreen hit your
1) Menu Button
Your Memory Options should read (These settings make it easy to connect to your computer):
Media Card Support ON
Encryption Mode NONE
Mass Media Storage ON
Auto Enable PROMPT
Hit your ESC (Back button, to the RIGHT of your trackball) 3 times. You should now be back at your Homescreen.
4) Connect your BlackBerry to your PC via the USB cable
5) Look at your BlackBerry, you should now have a screen that pops up asking "Do you want to enable MASS MEDIA..." YES
6) Now on your computer you should have a window that opens up. If not goto My Computer and look for and open your "BlackBerry."
7) Double click BlackBerry (The folder)
8) Double click Music (The Folder)
9) Minimize that window
10) Now you goto where ever your "music" is
11) Select your songs
12) Right click on one of your selected files
14) Open the "BlackBerry/Music" window
15) Right click
When your all done just unplug your BlackBerry.
Simple??? I thought so.

I accidently erased my playlists I guess when I cleared my music folder to delete content and add new content.
Now, I can't sync playlists through Windows Media Player.
(I'm using WMP because when I used the blackberry 6.0 software, it was confusing to see what music was on the player and how to delete and reorganize content).

I put music on the micro-sd card using your instructions (BB Curve 8330). Used Windows media player to download the music. Seemed to work fine, but when I try to play it, I don't get complete selections & there are interruptions. Any ideas?

Having read such an easy to understand set of instructions I thought I wouldn't have any problems transferring some songs from Windows Media. However when I connect my Blackberry to my PC I don't get any screen popping up on my Blackberry and I can't seem to proceed further.
I have tried using the software that came with the Blackberry with no success so was quite hopeful this would work. On reading through some of the replies I am now wondering if it because I need a media card. A friend of mine doesn't have a media card but still managed to transfer music...can't remember how though!
I am getting a bit confused with what I thought would be a simple process so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have some other app running that would make the software think there is a video device playing? It doesn't sound like an mp3 problem, it sounds like the phone just can't play/record using different programs at the same time.

my music has all been put on this way,the only "problem is that when I click on the music icon in media, and view the albums, they are different to when I click on explore, and go to media card, even though all my music is on the card only. Some albums have to accessed one way, some the other. Also the music accessed through "explore" will not play continuously unless I select "play all", and the icons for each track look fuzzy compared to the ones when using "media/music/albums"

On the subject of Roland's quote, which free converter would be best for a mac so I can convert my favourite iTunes songs and put them on my phone. Or can I just put the iTunes songs on my phone with no need to convert them or anything.??????????
