Thread: Is there a way to put files on blackberrys internal memory?

  1. #1

    Default Is there a way to put files on blackberrys internal memory?

    I have a blackberry curve 8320 and I want to put music and videos onto it, but without using a memory card. I know there's a way in windows with roxio media manager, but that's crapware, and I don't want to login to windows for anything unless it's absolutely necessary...

    I downloaded barry and kitchensync (the KDE version of opensync, I guess) but there's only the option to sync contacts and events. I just want to put on some ringtones on my blackberry and get pictures off the HD, is this possible in opensuse 11.1 running KDE 4.2.2?

    Hi
    Do you have a bluetooth adaptor on your pc? If so, enable bluetooth and
    browsing the blackberry may be an option.

    Good thing you told me, I just google'd and found that the bluetooth dongle I ordered is linux un-friendly. Thanks again.

    If you'll pay for a bluetooth adapter, pay for a MicroSD instead! Blackberries work better with music files on the MicroSD and Linux will recognize the card as a removable disk without installing any drivers.

    Default Accessing BlackBerry 8100 internal memory and microSD memory

    I have USB not bluetooth. If I connect the BlackBerry to my OpenSuSE 11.1 KDE 3.5 machine and look at the Hardware in YAST2 I can see the BlackBerry. It doesn't show up in "My Computer" or pop open a window like most devices you can plug in to USB do. If I put the microSD memory in an adapter and try and look at it with my card reader it doesn't show up eitehr.

    It shows up on my Windows XP laptop and It works with BlackBerry Tools on that laptop.

    How do you make it play with Linux? I just want access to the music/video and pictures. I am not trying to sync up an address book. Attaching it as a mass storage device.

    Default usb_modeswitch

    I googled that and also checked to see if it is installed. It is installed however The google result Draisberghof - Software - USB_ModeSwitch us beyond my computer literacy level. I just want to use my computer and my hardware.

    I don't want to mess up my daily driver and any of the USB devices I use everyday like my printer and USB Hard drives. It looks like no joy and it's a windows only device. Too bad all my media is on a Linux box and not a Windows box.

    I hate that fact that this is the second phone I have bought that doesn't work on Linux. At least with the LG Phone I had I could take the Memory card out and just use it like any generic memory card. This card isn't even recognised. A very nice phone in all other respects. My advice don't by any RIM products they don't plug and play Linux. I know I will not do it again now that this doesn't just plug and play.
