    media card on my blackberry pearl 8100 says media card isnt present

  • Anonymous Apr 15, 2009

    My Blackberry Pearl won't let me save anything on my media card.. It's as if it's not even in there. Is there a setting I need to do to set-up my media card so my cell knows it's there?

Try opening your options menu and select "media card". Make sure media card support is turned on.

your card may not work with the blackberry. try formatting the card via it ebeing in the blackberry, and then put everything back on the card afterwards. it should work. if not again, your card might just not be compatible wit the phone

My blackberry pearl says: "A media card is not presently inserted in the device

Hello. If you know you have inserted a card but it is not showing up remove the card, wipe it with a tissue and reinsert it more firmly. If you do not have a media card but need one, they are available at any phone store, or staples, or electronics department at walmart. Regards, Joe.
ps - kindly rate my answer as helpful. thank you.

When i put my media card in my blackberry it says its not there?

back up first all of your files.then format your media card using your Blackberry,not your PC.If it is still same problem after formatting,try to replace another media card and check if other media is working in your phone.lastly,if still not working its already a hardware problem,its a memory card IC,not working anymore,you must replace it.

This issue may be caused by one of the following:
A large number of applications are installed on blackberry smartphone.To resolve this issue complete the following steps:
  • Make sure that the BlackBerry® Device Software is installed on the computer to display the correct total application space.
  • Determine the application space that is available on the BlackBerry smartphone by completing the following steps:
* Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer. * Open the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager
* Double-click Application Loader
* At the Device Application Selection screen, under the application selection window, note the total application space.
  • Remove applications that are not required. For example, remove additional language packs and themes.
Media settings may contribute to low memory capacity.
  • On the BlackBerry smartphone, click Media.

  • Display the menu, and click Options.
  • Set the Device Memory Limit to the lowest setting field
  • Display the menu, and click Save.

  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options > Status
  2. Display the menu, and select Database Sizes.
  3. Reduce the number of items that are increasing the size of the database. For example, if the Address Book database is large, remove out-of-date contacts. If the Content Store database is large, move media files from the BlackBerry smartphone memory to a media card.

Can't open data stored on media card

Connect the BlackBerry to your computer.
Open My Computer, and open Properties of the drive.
What does it show under File System?

The BlackBerry cannot read NTFS, so make sure that it is not an NTFS file system. if it is, move your files off the card, and format it as FAT, then put the files back on the card after the format.

Otherwise, without the BlackBerry connected to the computer, go to Options (or Setting > Options, depending on your Theme),
Then opem Media Card, or Memory (depending on your Theme and software version).

What does it say about the card? Does it say that it is connected, or that there is no card?

How to unlock my blackberry curve free!

take out your sim card and or media card and enter the password wrong. It usually has about 10 tries. After the final time, it clears any personal data on the phone for security reasons(thats why you take out your cards) Then when it is done reloading, you can change your password...make it something easy. Then go into your security options and disable the security lock. Then you can put your cards back in. Good luck.
