    Smile Media card not reading!!

    Advertisement



    Hi!!
    Does anyone know what to do if your pearl is not reading the media card? It was working when I first put it in, but I had to take it out of the phone to see if it would work with another phone, and ever since then it not reading it. I've re-inserted it many times but nothing! Its really frustrating and if anyone could help I would be soooo thankful for the rest of my life!!!!

    When you inserted it into the other phone did you format it with the other phone?

    No i did not. It was actually for that phone, but it wasn 't reading it in that one either. So i decided to see if it would read it in mine, and it did, worked fine then when I took it out it stopped..I dunno!!! Its upsetting me

    Question Re: Media card not reading!!

    I have the same problem. I purchased a 512 MB memory card and inserted it into my phone, it worked. Then a friend took it and put it in his phone, it again worked. When i put it back into my phone, it no longer worked, the pearl could not recognize the memory card, but when again inserted into my friend's samsung phone it worked.

    To add to the problem, sometimes i can not see some folders in my media. I have created a new video folder under Device Memory, but i can not see this folder when browsing the media in my pearl. Any ideas?

    Lightbulb Re: Media card not reading!!

    Try this.

    Instead of using your scroll mouse to select folders, use the menu options instead.

    For example, from the desktop, go to media, then click the mouse ball to select it. Then scroll to Video, then click on the menu button and choose explore. You shoudl now see two options, device memory and media card.

    I don't know if this will work for your problem, i do not have a memory card to test this idea on, but this function did work to allow me access to my device memory, where before even that was not available.

    In my case, i think i deleted my original folders, so the shortcuts no longer work, therefore i have to use the explore function to search for folders. Hope this helps.

    Open up the BB and remove the media card. Inspect all the contacts on the BB and see if they are not bent or broken. You may have damaged your BB if you weren't very carefull in installing the media card.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Media card not reading!!

    The media card has not been in the phone for awhile now..I just opened it up and everything looks good, so I have no clue what the problem is with the media card. Like i said, it also does not read in the razor phone that it came in. Its been like that ever since I tried to install it in that phone, but worked okie with mine until recently. =(

    Re: Media card not reading!!

    sounds like a card issue to me.
    I could be wrong, it's happened before.
