    What size is the card and what OS version is on your BB? Also, are you sure it is inserted properly and is media card support enabled?

    If the Format Card option does not appear on the menu, complete the following steps:
    1. On the Media Card screen, set the Mass Storage Mode Support field to Off.
    2. Display the menu and click Save. The Media Card screen closes automatically.
    3. Click Media Card to reopen the Media Card screen.
    4. To format the media card, display the menu and click Format Card.
    5. A warning message will appear asking if you are certain you would like to format the card. Click Yes to continue.

    Yes formatting the card does erase it's contents. Yes if you transfer everything to a folder on your computer first then it will all be saved and it's easy to put it all back on the card once it has been reformatted.

    When I do this my media card menu screen just freezes up I figured it'd eventually stop thinking maybe it took a while to format but I left it for 20 min and it still wouldn't let me do anything so I had to take the battery out I've tried this several times with the same problem....any suggestions? I have an pearl 8100

    what you can try doing is first inserting the memory card on your computer and seeing whats on it becasue once you format the card it will erase everything. after you see that there is nothing on the card or you have copied all the contents from it format the memory card in the computer and then put in the blackberry and format it again for blackberry uses and it should work.
