Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

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 access them from the blackberry?

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 bb 8520 says media card cannot be read. verify that the memory card is formatted. what do me?


Hi there,

The best thing you can try to do is connect the media card to your computer. When you see it show up in "my computer" or "computer" right click on it, and select "format". Make sure the formatting is in either FAT or FAT32. Once that is done, put it back in the phone and try again. If you cannot plug the card into the computer, then use the supplied USB cable for the phone, and plug that in to the computer. On your screen it will ask if you want to sync, enable mass storage or charge only, make sure you select enable mass storage. If you do this your card should be readable on the computer and then you can format it using the same method I described. Just note that if your blackberry gets plugged in, it will show up with 2 "storage cards". One of them is the memory that is on the phone and the other is the actual media card. Make sure it is the media card that you have selected to format.

joel paterso,

I will list a couple of suggestions that you may already know about, but hey anything is better than nothing, you'll go away knowing you tried everything.

1. It could be that the memory card is now corrupted, in this case there is no hope just buy a new on from ebay, thay are alot cheaper there if u can wait a week or so.

2. It could be that the software is only recognizing "free space" so don't worry. you still have 8GB of memory. Maybe there's a compatibility issue with the blackberry software recognizing your music. I don't think there is a major problem with anything here.

3. You could try erasing the music off of it to see if the software will recognize it as 8GB, if it does then its because of reason #2

There you go Just my thoughts as to what you could do to troubleshoot you issue. If you have anymore questions just let me know!

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.

Can't download music from my PC to the Blackberry Curve


Go to the options, then click media card, scroll to Auto Enable Mass Storage and set to prompt. Unplug your BB from USB and plug it back in. It will prompt you with a message "Do you want to turn on Mass Storage Mode? Click yes. Don't click Don't ask this question again. I actually came here to find the solution, then i figured it out. Your "Disk Drive" added will then say Blackberry.
