    Yep. I have a BlackBerry Curve 8330 from Verizon. It's my first BB, but I've been quite infatuated since I got it, so I can probably help you.

    If not, HowardForums is a great forum for information.

    Which BB do you have? You'll want to get a microSD card and put the music on there. When you connect your BB, you have to enable mass storage mode so your computer can access the memory card. Otherwise the BB will "lock down" the card and prevent the access.

    There should be a setting regarding mass storage mode. I have mine prompt me when my BB connects to my computer. You also need to have your BB format the microSD card first.

    Did you download/install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software? I think it comes standard with Roxio's Media Manager, but you can download the DM off the website without Media Manager. You don't have to use Media Manager. Once your memory card is formatted, the media folders are really easy. Mass storage mode makes your BB show up in My Computer, and you should be able to drag-n-drop music and other files.

    i didnt even have to install the BB software. all i did was plug the microSD card in to the PC and drag and drop the mp3 files on to the SD card. they worked fine right from the get go.

    make sure it is under the proper sub-folder.

    It needs to be under blackberry/music

    otherwise, the Blackberry won't see it.


    also, www.themes4bb.com is a great site for themes and other general info.

    How much music are you adding? You're going to the Media icon and choosing Music, correct? Choose Artists and see if they pop up.
