How to Put Music on a Blackberry Storm

April 7th, 2010

Putting music on your BlackBerry Storm is very easy, and you’ll be able to listen to all your favorite tunes on your BlackBerry in no time.


Step 1: Connect your BlackBerry to your computer. Plug the small end of a standard mini-USB cord into your Storm, and then plug the large end into a standard USB port. After the BlackBerry is plugged in, a little message will pop up letting you know that the BlackBerry has been connected. If this is your first time connecting your phone to the computer, you may need to install some drivers by clicking on a few prompts.

Step 2: Open your BlackBerry’s internal memory unit by going to "My Computer" and clicking on the BlackBerry Storm icon. You will see a series of files. Locate the one that says "Music" on it.

Step 3: Gather all of the music files that you want and put them in a central folder. Note: Although the BlackBerry Storm can play back most audio formats, including MP3, AAC and WMA, it is not compatible with music that contains Digital Rights Management coding (or DRM), so any music purchased through the iTunes service will not work with your BlackBerry.

Step 4: Drag all the music files that you grouped together over the "Music" folder you found in Step 2. A status window will pop up showing the status of your file transfer. Once this window disappears, your music has been successfully transferred to your BlackBerry, and you can disconnect it.
