    You need to have a media card in the BlackBerry to be able to access
    You do not need any 3rd party program to play the below file formats
    The BlackBerry Device will support the following media types. As long as it's in the list, it will play it

    Music
    The following audio formats (including extensions) are supported:

    ACC - audio compression formats AAC, AAC+, and EAAC+
    AMR - Adaptive Multi Rate-Narrow Band (AMR-NB) speech coder standard
    Supported AMR-NB rates are 4.75 KBps, 5.15 KBps, 5.9 KBps, 6.7 KBps, 7.4 KBps, 7.95 KBps, 10.2 KBps, and 12.2 KBps.

    AMR files must conform to the standards specified in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Request for Comments (RFC) document RFC3267, Section 5, on the Internet RFC Archive web site.

    MIDI - Polyphonic MIDI (.mid, .midi, or .smf)
    MP3 - encoded using MPEG Part 1 and Part 2 audio layer 3
    Supported sample rates are 16kHz, 22.050kHz, 24kHz, 32kHz, 44.1kHz, and 48kHz.

    WAV - supports sample rates of 8 kHz, 16 kHz, 22.05 kHz, 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz with 8-bit and 16-bit depths in mono or stereo
    WAV files created using audio codec GSM6.10 are supported. However, BlackBerry 8830 series smartphones do not natively support Global Systems for Mobile Communications® (GSM®) encoding and require the BlackBerry Attachment Service from either the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server or the BlackBerry® Internet Service. See KB13547 for more information.

    Note: Playback of WAV files received as email message attachments requires BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 Service Pack 2 (4.1.2).

    Note: If the BlackBerry smartphone user has a BlackBerry Internet Service 2.3 account with BlackBerry Device Software 4.2 or later, WAV voice mail files will work.

    Windows Media Audio (WMA 9) Standard Profile Decoder

    WMA 10 Professional M0 Profile Decoder
    WMA 9 Profile Decoder and WMA 10 M0 Profile Decoder are only supported by BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1 or later. See KB05419 for more information.

    No there is a slot under the battery. By the way blackberry doesn't support flash. You can only veiw videos in the media player. The guy above is talking about downloading videos to your berry. Not clicking links

    To update the OS, go to the section of threads for your berry like the 83xx section and read the sticky at the top of the section. Make sure you follow all directions though
