Question about Cell Phones
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.

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!!
