    did you take it out and put it back in, just in case it got dislodged?

    what exactly do you mean 'playing with some of the mp3s'?

    Just for grins...check Options>Advanced>Media Card and make sure that Media Card Support is ON. Also please confirm you are not attempting to acces the media card with the phone while tethered with Mass Storage Enabled?

    2gb Cards are super cheap now days. Maybe invest in a new one?

    That's what I was afraid JY was going to come to. My question still remains though, why did it suddenly stop working? Its SanDisk.. The best of the best... And is this going to continue to happen to each new card that I buy? Is it being caused by the phone, or is it a faulty card? Ya know? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I doubt that it was that phone that caused it, unless you had it plugged in when a power surge happened. Have you tried someone else's card in your phone? Just to double check that it's the card not the connection. Also try accessing it on your PC.

    Could be just a faulty card. It happens sometimes.

    I dunno though. I have seen a couple of other people having this issue.

    Re: media card not recognized?!!?

    As previously stated, I swapped cards with my gf, I could use hers, and hers wouldn't recognize mine. Appears the card is shot. I have seen a common trend... We all seem to be using the new .96 OS... I have to wonder. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Additionally, after telephone conversations with CellOne and RIM... I'm being told that the carrier specific OS is that way for a reason... and that it is possible that theres a corruption in the new .96 OS... so stick with ur carrier specific OS
