    Did you format the transflash card in the phone before you put the files on
    it from the PC? If not, format it first with the phone. Also WHAT KIND of
    files did you put on the card that you wanted to put on the phone? The phone
    only supports .jpg pics, .gif pics, .mid sound files, and .mp3 sound files.
    The .jpg files should be sized at 176(v) by 220(h) is you want to use them
    as wallpaper. .GIF files can be a problem if they're too big, especially
    some animated gifs.

    Same thing goes for midi files and mp3 files. Cut them down a bit if you can
    using a midi editor to cut them down to 30 seconds or less if you can. Also
    some type 1 midi files will not work I hear, only type 0. MP3 files should
    also be cut down in both sample rate and size (length) using a program such
    as (free) audacity so that they are no longer than 10-30 seconds in length
    (assuming you want to use them as ringers). If you want to put 'regular' mp3
    files on the phone, you're going to be wasting a lot of space and I
    recommend a regular mp3 player for that useage.

    I put some files in the Root and still not showing up. Do you just look
    for them on the phone where the other pics and videos you took on the
    phone?

    Do you need to Load the stuff to the phone or dose it take it from the
    card when you power up the phone?

    Thanks.

    I really don't know what you might be doing wrong, but try putting the files
    in the root directory of the card instead of in the folders. It SHOULD work
    either way (it does on mine)..

    You will need to switch the default storage device for sounds and pics
    to the Tflash card.

    You need to 'switch storage device' on the phone in order to see the files
    on the card. Then you can move or copy from the card to the phone if you
    wish. After you've done that you should switch storage devices again back to
    the phone and make sure that the pics or sounds got transferred ok.

    While you are viewing the menu of pictures or sounds hit the menu key and
    'switch storage device' will be in that menu. In the sounds menu it should
    be at the bottom of the screen. In the pictures menu you'll either have to
    scroll down to it or (assuming you have 'scroll wrap around' set in the
    settings/intial setup menu) scroll up a few times until the 'switch storage
    device' choice is selected.
