    It's just a folder in my file manager that's named PROTECTED_ MEDIA.......but when I try to open it, it says Permission Denied. Seems to me that I should be able to access anything I want.

    From Bla1ze:

    Actually, the protected media folder is not really used by consumers. It's actually in place to protect content on the device that BlackBerry doesn't want you to have access to e.g. Preloaded ringtones, wallpapers etc. This can be witnessed by trying to access the folder by using a file explorer app or whatever else you wish to use to browse files on your device. You need elevated privileges to access it or in other words 'root' access.
