    Help!! Media Card Won't Work!!

    Advertisement



    Hello all,
    I just got the Pearl, and also bought a 2gig card for it. When I put the card in the BB and turn it on, all that happens is the red light blinks then quicky followed by the screen/keys lighting up...a pause or two..then it does it all over again. ANY IDEAS????

    Take the Data Card out of the phone. Does the phone boot up with no card present? If so, I would suggest returning the card and getting a replacement.

    What OS are you running? If it's an old one it may not work with a 2gb card. Although if you just got it it should be at least running a somewhat recent OS.

    Are you inserting the card correctly? If you use the adapter that comes with the card can you read it with your PC?

    When i take it out, the phone turns on fine. I got the phone off of craigslist, so it's hard to say how old the phone is. I can read the card fine when I hook it up to my pc. Do I need to format it or anything? oh, also, would a high version of the OS maybe fix this?

    yea, if you update the OS then you would be able to use it. Is it TMO? What OS are you on? If it's .42 then yea I would update it.

    Here is the link to the latest and greatest
    follow the link from this post
    http://members.a1.net/updateservice/bb/
    you will have to delete the Vendor.xml file for it to load.
    Once you have removed this your desktop manager will recognize there is an update for it.

    you can find the vendor file here
    C:\Program File\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader

    Re: Help!! Media Card Won't Work!!

    You can determine your current OS by going to Options-->About

    It will say something like

    Blackberry 8100
    Wireless Handheld (EDGE)
    v4.2.xxxxxxx

    That is your OS version

    The most current ones available are

    4.2.2.101 (Austria) or 4.2.2.96 (AT&T)

    Follow ChefScott's link or you can browse the complete list of available OS' here.

    And welcome to the Stacks, you came to the right place.
