    Media Card Error?!?!

    Advertisement



    Whats up everybody?

    For some reason, my media card is no longer recognized by my pearl.

    Everything worked well on Friday with it, I loaded some mp3's onto the card and when I put the card back into the pearl it wouldn't recognize it at all... However, I know the card is good because I've tried it on my treo and it works fine.

    This is absolutely horrible, I neeeeeed my music!!!!!

    You guys have any suggestions??

    Thanks!

    BigT - from your post I assume that you removed your card. Check top make sure it is properly installed, and then check under options media card to make sure that your support is ON.

    Re: Media Card Error?!?!

    Thanks for the quick reply but still no luck!

    I've done the battery pull as well as taking the card out to doublecheck its been inserted properly.

    -Media Card Support is set to ON

    -Encryption Mode is set to NONE

    -Mass Storage Mode Support is set to ON

    and

    -Auto Enable for Mass Storage Mode is set to PROMPT

    The pearl indicates that the media card cannot be read. Verify that the memory card is formatted.

    Could me using the treo to play the music on the card have an effect on this???

    Well it seems that you did somethjing that the BB does not like .... if the TREO altered the format that would do it.

    You may want to back up the media loaded on the card and re-format itusing your phone. Then use the Mass Storage mode to simply copy all the files back into your music folder.

    Thanks for all the help, its greatly appreciated.

    Gary- How do the settings look? Everything is set to where it needs to be?

    I'm going to go ahead and back everything up then reformat to see what happens.

    Your settings look fine. Just remember that with Mass Storage Enabled you will NOT be able to access the sd card with the BB while you are tethered - so dont be surprised if your phone does not see these files!

    Post back your results!

    Re: Media Card Error?!?!

    So I ended up backing up all my files on the media card and reformatting.

    Luckily that did the trick, I guess swapping the media card back and forth between the pearl and my treo was not a good idea lol.

    Either way, we are back in business!

    Many thanks for all the help!
