    Please advise were can the card be inserted in my laptop ( HP pavilion2130 US) that has only one wide slot for memory cards, like those of a digital camera. Is there any other cnnection means to connect the card to the computer that I do not know ? The card is a MicroSD brand and therefore the computer slot is too wide for it.Thank you.

    I have inserted the card into the slot of a similar backberry 8520 cell phone and it was accessed immediately. So the problem is not the card but the cell phone itself. Do you have a slution for his kind of defect ?

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

To narrow down the problem please test the card on another phone or on the computer, does it work normally?

If it works normally on the computer or on another device, then try formatting it on the computer again, Format it as FAT (not Fat32) to format the card, you open my computer or computer, then right click on the drive that the card is under and select format.

    What do you mean any other MMC? --- The phone has a MicroSD memory card slot. Only MicroSD cards will work with this phone.

  • Ekse Oct 16, 2010

    With an adapter you can insert the microsd into the SD slot on the computer. such an adapter costs around 1 $ or you may purchase a whole new card reader for around 5€ that can read all the cards.

    only two possible things you can do at home are. Full factory reset and a firmware update.

    If those don't help, then it must be a hardware problem that we can't fix.

    How to reset BlackBerry Curve 8520 to factory settings:

    Press the BlackBerry key, Go To Options > Security Options > General Settings > Menu > Wipe Handheld > Scroll to Continue, press the Trackpad. it will reset your BlackBerry 8520 quickly.


    The firmware update can be performed online at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/ see link on the middle of the page "update your smartphone software online"


    As for getting the phone repaired, are you in warranty ? -> contact your dealer
    Outside of warranty, you could ask your dealer, or you could contact blackberry directly.

Hi,

This is a very well known issue with Blackberry. This is a hardware issue, however you could try the couple of tricks to see if this would fix the problem.

1. Taking the card in and then out and doing a battery pull might fix this problem.

2. If the memory card is readable in your PC, back up the data first and then format the memory card in FAT not FAT32.

If the problem persists, you need to send the unit for repair. Change of SD card won't help as i mentioned this is a well known hardware bug.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi my blackberry 8520 says my memory card can not be accessed due to fatal errors. pls what can i do???


Hi there. Have you tried a different memory card? With the one that is giving you an error I would try formatting it on your computer and see if this helps. when you connect the card to the computer you should right click on it and then select format. Make sure it is formatted as FAT or FAT32 and then try it again in your phone.

Hello, You can try to remove the media card and have it inserted to a card reader and plug in to your computer. If it won't work, the card might have been damaged during the drop and and might have shorted.

Media Card Cannot be Accessed due to Fatal Errors


Sorry to hear your problem.
I have a Blackberry Curve that did the same thing to me. I had a 8gb micro SD in there for a few month and suddenly all my data was gone . I also could not reformat disk either. Never fixed the problem ans was forced to buy a new card.

Some questions to ask are:
How old is the second disk?

think of your daily patterns are you going around some area or working around something that could damage your card?

again, sorry for your misfortune. I thought my feedback would let you know you are not alone this happens to these memory cards and it it hard to pinpoint to problem.

try one more card and monitor your daily routine, x-rays, airport scanner, high magnetic areas all can do damage. Otherwise it may be the phone.
