Media card issues
So i'm almost at my wits end here... Blackberry storm 9530 would not recognize any MicroSD card inserted. Tried several different ones i have laying around and none of them are detected.
Tried resetting the OS and did not help. Tried removing the battery and still no go.
I wish i can go to Verizon to exchange but i'm not a verizon customer. Bought this off CL and unlocked it.
1. Insure that the Media Card window is ON
2. Encryption NONE
3. Mass Storage ON
4. Auto Enable When Connected YES
Does your card have the following folders:
Format the card in the Blackberry:
Hope this helps
+1 for formating the card in the BB.
Always fixes MMC issues as far as i know
Yep i'm showing all of those enabled.
Unfortunately, i have no such option to format the media card as it is saying that there is no media card present.

I'd take a pic and see if recognition and set up would occur if you went through the motions of looking for a place to store it. See if, once you have something to store, it recognizes the card
You mentioned you have a few cards laying around. I'm not sure how they are installed on a Storm. Is it an externally installed card, or is it like the older devices where you have to install them under the battery?
If the latter is the case, as Karen has suggested, perhaps the card hasn't been seated correctly. On older devices, there is a bit of a trick to properly inserting the card which you can read about in this thread.
Otherwise, my only other thought is that somehow the cards have become incapacitated, which can happen if they are exposed to water or magnets.
ejected and re-insterted the card and still wouldn't see it - don't know if i would insert iut even further. seemed sto stop at a third of the way in and won't go further.
Also tried snapping a picture and would not recognize any other place than the device memory.
If none of the other suggestions work it may be a defective phone. Is it used. You can try the mass storage fix I posted but its really for PC to recognize the SD card. I haven't ran across this issue. Still its worth a try.

third of the way in sounds about right. has it ever recognized a card?
+1 for cat, try another card and if that one doesnt work you might be using a defective phone.
Can you try the card in another device, like a laptop or card reader?
Yeah i guess it never worked. i thought it was my memory card... but it wasn't.
Verizon won't replace it for me because i'm not their customer, so i guess i'm stuck with a storm with defective media card slot, eh?
don't give up...it might work when you upgrade your os.
