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 dont know if its the black berry or the sd card but it won't read on the computer or the phone. I tried to format it but how can you format something that cannot be read by both deivices? any...

look at page "3/9" of this document "" and it will show on the lower right hand side of the picture a slot that says "write protect", move that tab to unlock the card.

BTW this is a good technical document for SD cards in general if you are interested in how the function.

Even when card is inserted properly it does not show up on the desk top or in 'my computer'

You will need a driver for the hardware to work correctly in order to show up in "my computer" If the card or hardware came with a insallation cd, please insert that disc and install the driver. If it did not come with a driver, then you may need to google it up for a driver, or simply tell us what card you had inserted in. If you are talking about card such as sd card or media card and it did not show up on the computer then 1, your media card is bad, and you will need to test it with another device( such as another computer with the media device slot) to see if it is working. If it is working on another device, we have to assume that your media card slot on your computer is not working. In this case we will assume that the hardware is there, however the media slot driver is not installed, or functionly correctly. You will need to go into device manager via your control panel and scroll and once in your hardware device manager, in your media/ sd device, see if there is any hardware detect, if not, your media device is bad, and it is not working. 2) If it is working, and it is seeing another card if you insert another card, then your card may just need to be formated.

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 sandisk into my blackberry phone it keeps saying a media card has been inserted that contains errors. to correct the errors please use a disk error-checking utility on a computer . how do...

Put the SanDisk into your SideKick phone, and navigate through the menu-items to "format" the device, i.e., delete all pictures, and return to "factory-shipped" condition. Then, put it into your B.B., and repeat the "format" process, to be 100% "factory-setttings".

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.
