    I uploaded a few mpeg videos, the BB can't play them, says they are an unsupported format. are there codecs I need to download in order for the BB to play them? or do I need to use the DM to convert all the videos? <---painstakingly slow process...

    does the music player have an EQ function? if not where can I get 1?

    how does 1 install games? I copied over the *.jar/*.jad files into the BB but have no idea how to install them. I don't even know if the BB has a file manager to see the files?

    I noticed the Documents to Go only has Word & PP. is there a way to get Excel & Access into it?

    thanks.

    You do have to convert videos, but there are alternatives to DM. Here are some:
    AUDIO
    use MP3 format and get Audacity: Windows and Audacity: How do I download and install the LAME MP3 encoder?

    PICTURES
    Get Image resizing, do it with PIXresizer which will resize any/all your pics for the BlackBerry

    VIDEOS
    Get Blackberry Video Converter from Seabyrd Technologies - Blackberry Video Converter

    Jar/Jad files are typically used for OTA installation. If you can get the .alx file, you can install it using DM App Loader. The BlackBerry doesn't have a File Manager as such because RIM won't let you that far into the internals of the device. You can run Media Manager / Menu / Explore to see the folders that RIM will let you manipulate.

    You have to register Docs-to-Go to get Excel. It's still free. I'm not aware of any Access capability.

    videos need to be .3pg I believe. Im sure some others will help elaborate more on that.
    There is headset equalizer and audio boost.
    .jad/.jar files are for OTA install. Simply go to where you downloaded them using your blackberry browser.
    Docs to go...open op the words to go and hit menu and check for updates. This will give you sheets to go (excel)

    OTA = Over the Air

    You need a Data Plan for that.


    You should be able to register and upgrade your Documents to Go via your computer.

    I had seen a couple of threads about upgrading docs to go to get excel. I followed the instructions and it tells me, after registering, that the upgrade is incompatable & will not download. I am running .77.

    update to this thread, in case any1 is following. there are 2 ways to get jar files to work:
    1. run it from media explorer or
    2. jar to alx converter, then install thru DM

    OTA is not necessary.
