    No matter what I try, reformatting, use as mass storage device, my device will not recognize that any type of media (pics, music, video) has ever been transferred. It shows my media folders as completely empty.

Hi, I'm trying to edit the music on my cell through my computer and it won't do anything, also, when I try to delete a song it says : media error


It could be a couple of things. If you have a media card inserted in your device, then it might be a bad media card. A couple of things you should try to fix this are to make sure your Blackberry Desktop manager is up to date. I believe the check for updates link is in the help menu.

The other thing to try is editing the media on your phone directly. Plug the phone into the computer, then click on "my computer" on your desktop. Your phone should show as one of the drives on that screen, and your media card if you have one as a second drive. Open whichever one you want to work with and go to the music folder. You should be able to drag and drop the songs you want into the folder and delete the ones you don't want etc.

Generally your service provider will offer tech support even for problems like this. If you can't solve this yourself, then try calling them. If they can't fix it, try calling RIM tech support, they're quite easy to deal with.

My blackberry bold 9650 is reading my scandisk 8 gb media card as a 4 gb media card. This just started happening. I found the problem when syncing my music. All of my music on Itunes used to fit on the...


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!

I cant access my music. it states that the sync took, but it is still showing that my music file is empty


1) Enter a name for the BlackBerry smartphone that media files will be transferred to
2) Choose to use either the Device Memory or the Media Card memory
3) Specify how much memory to keep free of music
4) Delete music transferred from all sources managed by BlackBerry Media Syncronization.
5) Indicate whether the BlackBerry smartphone should check for BlackBerry Media Syncronization updates when BlackBerry Media Syncronization opens, or should never check for updates.
I hope I was able to help you.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Complete the following steps:
1) Use a search engine or a dedicated download site to find and download a third-party conversion tool. The tool must have the ability to convert the format of the audio or video file to a file format that the Media application can read.
2) Install the third-party conversion tool and follow the program instructions to convert the audio or video file to a format that the Media application supports. Refer to the following tables for optimal settings in the Media application.
Optimal settings for the Media application on the BlackBerry 9000 series smartphones:-
For video setting's

Note: Files larger than 3 MB cannot be transferred to internal BlackBerry smartphone memory.

  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, go to Options > Advanced Options > Media Card.
  2. Make sure that Mass Storage Mode Support is set to Enabled.
  3. Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and follow the prompts on the BlackBerry smartphone.
  4. Open the My Computer folder on the computer. The media card should appear there as a Removable Disk.

I am going to guess that since you can copy some types of media files to your phone then the problem is the format of the video files you want to copy. The phone's media playing application may not show files it cannot recognize.(or show an error message).

If you want to watch videos (or movies) on any type of smart phone or mobile player then I suggest you download a free application called Format Factory. It converts any type of media file to any other type of media file (video, music, pictures, DVDs). It has settings for Blackberry phones, iPods, PsP, etc. Go to: http://www.formatoz.com/ and check it out.

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?

Can i download music from my itunes library to my blackberry curve without a media card


First of all, I hope that you have a memory card in your BlackBerry because 96MB isn't much space to hold any music at all. So, if you do, and you have a USB cable hooked up.. and you can transfer files, then you need a program like "Tunebite" which will automatically switch formats from iTunes to standard MP3 that your Blackberry can recognize and play.
