Try this: "options" then "media Card." Once inside the "media card" section, hit the function key (I suspect this is where you couldn't select the option) and select "format card."

I got a new micro sd card hc for my blackberry but when i put it on the phone cant read it i look for it everywherer but cant find it it worked on my freinds blackberry but not mine

Blackberrys have IEP files contained on them, If when your friend put the card into his BB one of these went across then the card wil have to be formated from the blackberry to work on yours

Micro SD card is write protected, but can't seem to reformat it

you might try formatting it with a windows pc. Sometimes devices have problems with cards formatted by Mac. Even when it is formatted to a FAT file system. On a side note I don't believe that Macs will format to Fat 16 anymore. (Macs use a different file system that windows altogether). You may also check the card to make sure that there isn't a manual read only switch. (It would show a picture of a small lock next to a tiny switch on the card)

My blackberry knows the media card is there but I can't access anything synced to it. Already formatted it, and when I plug it in to the computer it reads the files as being on the phone. Why can't I...

This has happened to me also, check to make sure the memory card size is supported by your phone. For example, I have an 8GB micro SD card. It will work in one blackberry, but my other one only supports up to 4GB. You would have to check the instruction manual.

My imate-jam cant recorgnise my memory card it is a kingston 8 gb but it can recorgnise a memory card of 2 gb (san disk)

Hello kenac, this may seem like a simple thing, but sometimes the simple things are the last ones we think of. Do you have any data on the 8GB card, if not, you can reformat it in the device and it should be happy. If the device does not have an option to format the card, you can format it in any computer that has a slot for it.

Hope this helps.
