Try this, Go to the Wrench icon, and then to media Card, make sure that media Card support is turned on, and that Mass Storage Mode Support is also turned on.

hope this helps, if it does please rank it accordingly.

I was using black berry then i switched to nokia e50 and i remove the mmc from black berry and when i inserted it to nokia e50 memory card is currupted how to solve this problem

You may need to format the memory card with your Nokia device.

However, all data in the memory card is permanently deleted if you format the memory card.

It is recommended to back up device memory regularly to the memory card. The information can be restored to your device


To back up information from device memory to a memory card, select Menu > Tools > Memory card > Options > Backup

phone mem.

To restore information from the memory card to the device memory, select Menu > Tools > Memory card >

Options > Restore from card.

Do not remove a memory card when the card is being accessed. Removing the card in the middle of an operation may damage

the memory card as well as the device, and data stored on the card may be corrupted.

If you cannot use a memory card in your device, you may have the wrong type of memory card, the card may not be formatted

for your device, or the card has a corrupted file system.

Tip: You can install and remove a memory card without removing the battery or powering off the device.

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.

No power no lights

You need to download Desktop Manager and install it first, use 4.6 without Media Manager:
4.5 will work fine, 4.7 would require additional steps, and that version is unnecessary for a 4.5 OS.
You can download Media Manager, but most people don't use it. Once you've got your Mass Media Mode enabled, your SD card is just like an external drive. Anything you want to do, you can through My Computer.

Then, only put the SIM in your berry. If it's jabberwocky with just the SIM, you should be able to do a back up with out. When you connect your berry to the PC, with DM open, it will prompt you to make a back up. Simply follow the prompts, and it should go smoothly. Then you can follow this guide to hopefully return your Pearl to it's upright position:
Upgrade Guide for the 8100, step by step from A to Z

Use this OS, instead of the one in the guide:
Newest 8110 OS (Mulit-language)

And ignore the stuff about ColorPearl/BlingBall as you have a 8110, and don't have our fancy-shmancy lights.

If your SIM is the problem, you'll need to get a replacement. If it's not the problem, then you've more than likely got some corrupt files on your media card. If you can successfully download the files off it, you'll probably see some with ".rem" after the normal extention. Delete them, and the others can be safely put back on.

Full hard format for blackberry 8700g

To delete all the data, go into Options / Security Options / General Settings, clik the wheel and then click Wipe Handheld.

This will remove all of the DATA, and not any of the applications.
