    I have an e-mail with a WMV attachment. Is there any way to save this to my Pre so I can use USB drive mode to watch it on my computer?

    Right now all I get is "cannot find application to open this file" -- no option to simply save the file.

    How hard do you want to get it? It seems all attachments are saved to directories under /var/luna/data/attachments/. Not sure if you can see these directories in USB mode, but you can in Internalz. Sorry it's not much help to find your specific attachment.

    Try sending a file to yourself by email from your wallpapers folder, if the file opens properly than it's the files you are receiving are bad.

    I am having the same question here. My friends emailed me an olympic game song as an email attachment. I can play it in Pre. but i can't save it to my phone. I will have to open the email with a computer and transfer it to my pre song folder. this is not convenient. Anybody have a solution?

    thanks.

    Wondering about the same thing. I've sent myself some mp3 files. I can play them, but haven't found a way to save them.

    You can use internalz to do it but its not a simple press and click solution.....

    Once you have internalz you browse to var/luna/data/attachment/ there will be folders with the name bucket they will be numbered then inside each bucket folder is another one named part with a bunch of number inside that folder is a attachment that came in an email.

    You have to just dig through each one till you find the attachment you want copy it over to /media/internal/ and the folder of your choice other than ones with a . in front of them and your done.

    Its somewhat of a pain but works...
