    Hi All,

    I have a strange problem. I downloaded an .ogg file that I emailed to myself (a ringtone). And now, I can't find it ANYWHERE in any of my media files. So, I thought it failed to download. I attempted to dl it again from the same email and the dl option was not available. SO, I emailed it to myself again in a new email. Dl'd it again. I got the message: "This file already exists, would you like to replace it?" I renamed it #2 so I could dl the same file again, just in case something screwy happened on the first DL.

    Well, I figure the fact that the file already exists, means the phone knows it has it and has successfully downloaded it. But I can't find either of the two copies of this file under any media heading on my BB!

    Is there some way to call up a master directory list of all files on a BB? Like looking at the list of files on the hard drive of a computer?

    This is really bugging me. It's a large file. I don't want it taking up memory space if I can't even use it.

    Oh, and PS: I have the BlackBerry Pearl Flip if that helps diagnose.
    Thx.

    I didn't think the Blackberry media player supported .OGG files. I would try converting it to MP3 then e-mail it to yourself again.

    You should have an icon called "Files' in the applications folder. this is used just like looking through a windows directory.

    ^ Yeah, I'm thinking that's why the file isn't visible, because the format isn't supported.

    Unfortunately, I have no "files" folder in my applications folder. This phone was majorly screwed up when I got it and required a lot of DL and re-DL'd of the OS.

    If I go to the App updater in my desktop manager on PC, do you have any idea what ap it is I need to update to make the "files" folder reappear?

    Thx.

    oh yeah while in the files app goto the menu and select show hidden, you can then see, find some files in the tmp or system folders

    This board is great

    Thanks ChillFactorz. Your first suggestion worked. Your second one I had already tried and it doesn't work. It's not a matter of my "files" folder being hidden, it was erased when my OS was screwed up, and now I don't know how to get it back! Oh well, that's a battle for another day, I guess. Glad I got rid of the errant .ogg files. Just wish I knew how to get my "files" folder back in my applications menu. . . .

    You may need to reload your OS to get this back.
