    its taking the time it needs to load all your media info into your device. It will get better, as you use it more. What speed rating is your card??

    If you just installed it, the first time it is accessed it will scan the card and it may take a few minutes. After the first time it should be normal.

    It should be marked on the actual card itself. There will be a number. 1,2, etc.

    2 is Slooooooowwwwwww.
    It's ok for almost everything except videos.
    Especially if you use the camera video on your phone.
    But they are the cheapest. So that helps a bit too.

    2 is fairly low, i think they make up to an 8 and thus the higher the number, the faster things process with that card( transfer music, data, etc)

    Did you format the card? (Options-memory-menu-format). Make sure you copy stuff if any on the card to your computer. Also (if already formatted or after formatting) check options-memory-media card support 'on' and mass storage support mode 'on', encryption mode 'none' (encrypting-decrypting takes time)

    Thanks for adding that
    I forget that some of us are new at times.
    Heck, I'm not new to BB, and I STILL learn more about it from my friends like you at PinStack!

    Hmm I never even knew that these memory cards had numbers on the besides the size. So of course I had to take mine out of my phone to check it and its a 4


    Also, ArchAngel, whenever you update the card from your computer (to add music, a video, or whatever), your phone will begin to scan the memory card again. It's only required to update its information on the files that are on the memory card to access them faster.

    It's like what Google Desktop does computers if you have ever used it.

    A "4" should serve your needs.
    But a "2" is really too slow to capture good video with your BB.
