    Can't save pictures on my Curve :(

    Advertisement



    Hi guys...

    I'm having a strange problem & I hope someone can help me. I was in a car accident recently & my curve was destroyed in the wreck. So last month I purchased the exact same model, an 8310, to replace it & began trying to get back all the apps, ringtones, etc that I had on my first curve. Right away I noticed call logs & emails dissappearing, so I deleted some unnecessary apps & the problem was solved. I have a lot less ringtones, pics & such on my new curve than I did on my first one & I have plenty of memory, so I'm not even sure why that happened & now this new problem is happening...when I take a picture a msg comes up that says "File Stem Full" & "Unable to Save."

    Does anyone know why this is happening & what I can do about it? I had tons of pics on my previous curve & never had this happen. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    If you don't have a memory card in it, go to pictures, hit the menu key and select options, make sure that the reserved pictures memory isn't set to 0MB.

    Hope this helps any.

    Thanks for the input Nicholaus. I did try that shortly after putting up my post & now it says I have 13 pictures I can take. Wierd thing is that I do have a memory card (as I did with my first BB, which like I said had tons of pics on it), yet still I am limited. Hmmm...

    No problem.

    I put a used memory card in my little brothers pearl and it wouldn't work so I put the card in my computer and erased everything on it and it worked fine after that.

    Yeah, you can also back-up all files from your card to your pc, then format w/device. Use Mass Storage mode to re-install files to your card via BB.

    Hmm. Thing is though, this is a new memory card. I wonder if I should take it back into the store & have them check it out, cuz something is definately not right.

    That's what I ended up doing, I don't know why it didn't work from the start, all the folders were right and everything. I guess the pearl won't take a card that was formatted for the curve.

    Have you already tried formatting like Jbee said?

    I bought a new memory card once, an in a couple of days it was loading slow, even not showing up. This is due to the fact that I was in a hurry to "play w/my toy" instead of doing what I should have done in the first place...Format w/my device.:cry: If you did not pre-format before you started loading thing on it, it can cause major issues. Just FYI

    No. Haven't tried that. I'm ashamed to say that I'm not all that computer savvy and have actually never hooked my BB up to my computer.

    (Think I just felt myself blush a lil...lol!)

    What good would it be to think one individual is better than another? None... We can be so much more when wrapped in Humility.
