    SDHD card ... media car format failed

    Advertisement



    Its a sandisk 8Gb card, brand new, and i successfully formatted it in my JVC Everio camera.
    Until i tried that, my BB9000 wouldnt even acknowledge the card, now it does.
    I go to options, memory, scroll down and the "Media card cannot be read ... yada yada yada"
    I go to format ... Format fails
    I go to install card ... nothing happens.
    I have tried dropping the battery out, waiting, popping it back in ... red herring as far as i am concerned.

    I am i going crazy here folks? The standard sandisk 1Gb card works fine, but i am baffled.

    Serious advice would be greatly appreciated if you can spare me the time
    Thanks!

    Oh, and I am certain the card is seated properly ... I have cycled the the 1Gb and the 8Gb card in and out about a dozen times and the 1Gb cards works every time, so its not a technique thing.

    Could it have been damaged? I have damaged one of the card by just using a pair of tweezers to pull it out of my Bold. If you look at the back of te card the memory is right on the surface and only covered by the thinnest cover. It got no more than a scratch over the area where the memory was and is was gone for ever.

    Good to hear, but it sounds like there might be a problem with your phone

    I'll say it's a problem with your phone. I just bought an 8gb card yesterday and the BB recognised it instantly.
