Any media card in the BB should pop up if you enable the media card upon 
USB connection.  File transfer to the card and the device is as easy as 
drag-n-drop using Nautilus or any other file manager.

Barry can even do a full back-up and restore of the device.

I haven't tried transfers via BT yet.  Just about to get it set up again 
on my new image.
