About transferring media files

You can connect your BlackBerry® device to your computer to transfer files between your device and your computer, or you can use Bluetooth® technology to send media files to or receive media files from a Bluetooth enabled device.

If you connect your device to your computer, you can transfer files quickly between your media card and your computer using mass storage mode or MTP. Use mass storage mode to transfer all file types and MTP to transfer media files. To manage your media files and preserve the information associated with your media files when you transfer files between your device and your computer, use the media manager tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager. For more information about using the media manager tool, see the online help that is available in the Roxio® Media Manager.

If you encrypt the files on a media card and you transfer files to your media card using mass storage mode, MTP, or Bluetooth technology, your device does not encrypt the transferred files. If you transfer encrypted files from your media card using mass storage mode, MTP, or Bluetooth technology, you cannot decrypt the files on your computer or on a Bluetooth enabled device.
