    Try removing it and reinstalling. That might work. The battery pull alone might fix it.

    If doing what emmc suggested does not work, back your card up on your PC and then re-format it. Be sure to save everything on your card, because re-formatting it will most likely delete everything thats on it.

    Reformatting will absolutely delete everything.

    Do you have access to another card? See if it reads that. It could be a bad card or a bad card holder in your bb. Maybe it's not making contact with the card. Seems strange that it would work and then not work.

    I'm guessing it's the contacts.

    Your pc ought to pick up the card even though your berry wont. If your PC wont pick it up, Im afraid the only alternative is is to try to re-format the card. I cant think of anything else to do, sorry.

    Good thing the cards are cheap. I recently bought an 8 gig for around $15 delivered. Works like a charm.

    Just a quick n redundant question, you did check to see if media card support was turned on right?

    Try formatting it, and if that isn't the issue. Try turning mass storage mode off. Or vice versa.
