    Transferring songs and pics from internal memory to a media card won't make your BB any faster. It will free up memory that you can use for other apps.

    There is no automatic way to do it. You have to select each item in device memory and move it to the media card. You can do that using Desktop Manager with Roxio Media Manager, or you can do it with the Media Manager app that's built into your BB.

    Using Media Manager:
    Media / Menu / Explore / Device Memory
    Browse until you find the file you want to move.
    Select it and press Menu / Move
    Continue selecting Up until you get to the top of the folder structure.
    Select Media Card
    Browse until you find the correct folder (pictures, music, etc.)
    Select Move Here.

    Repeat for each picture and song.

    If you don't want to use media manager you can always enable mass storage mode. Both your phone and media card will show up as drives under "my computer." You can just drag and drop pretty easily.

    Mass Storage Mode can't see the device memory. It only works with the Media card. Once all the files are on the Media card, then Mass Storage Mode is definitely the best option.

    I was under the impression that removing media files from the device memory would not provide more app memory. Not a call out, just asking for clarification.

    I don't have a Bold, so it's possible I'm mistaken in this case. 8xxx series BlackBerry devices use the same memory for media as applications. My advice is correct for 8xxx devices, perhaps not for Bold's.

    Mass Storage Mode on a Bold does indeed show the device memory as a drive as well. I'm not sure about the 8800 series...

    Hey, thanks for the correction. I'll remember that. I'm glad RIM added that capability. It didn't work that way in 8xxx devices.

    When I plug my Bold into my computer via the USB cable with Mass Storage on I get 2 windows that pop open. One is for the device memory and one is for the Micro SD card memory. You can open them as drives (folders) and then copy away.

    Hey guys I'm having the same problem, I am trying to transfer my videos from the device memory to the card memory. I tried using media manager but when I get up to 'Continue selecting Up until you get to the top of the folder structure' the media card option does not come up. Am I doing something wrong ?

    Also I when I connect using the USB selecting mass storage only the card memory option comes up.

    Can someone help me please ....

    I wish I could help, since you are trying to follow my instructions, but I don't have a bold so I can't replicate what you are doing. On my 8830, Mass Storage Mode can't see the device memory, but according to the posts above, that's possible on the Bold.

    With Mass Storage Mode on it will show your device as one drive and your media car as another. If they don't pop up as windows when you plug it it then open Windows Explorer (right-click on Start and select Explore) and you will see the 2 drives.

    My 2 drives show up as:
    BLACKBERRY1 and BLACKBERRY2

    Just drag them from your device folder to your media card.

    There are actually 3 types of memory areas for bold:
    1. Application memory (128 MB). If this memory falls below certain number (5-15 MB), the
    phone becomes sluggish and crashes often. All emails, sms, mms are stored in this area of
    memory. All programs have their code files and internal files stored here as well. Typical
    usage for most people is 40-60 MB free most of the time. Roughly half of 128 MB is taken by
    the OS. The java garbage collector has complete control over this area. When people discuss
    about all sorts of memory optimization techniques, they talk about maximizing the amount
    of memory free here. Since the space here is so precious and limited, only install apps
    you truly need and use often.
    2.Device memory (1 GB). Can be used to store anything. Usually gets mounted as
    BLACKBERRY1 drive in Windows when the phone is in mass storage mode.
    3. Media card (space varies). The memory is provided by microSD or microSDHC cards
    plugged into the phone. Usually gets mounted as BLACKBERRY2 drive in Windows when the
    phone is in mass storage mode. You should store all your media files here.

    For pictures that are on the device memory, do this. Media>Pictures> Highlight the pic you want to move>menu>move>explore>media card>move here.
    Same with music.
