    your card should not be on lock. and if it fails again you can format it manuallall you have to do i make a main folder named "BlackBerry" then inside that folder create 4 others named "music" pictures" ringtones" videos" that exact spelling CAP sensitive.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I think he may have meant that the card is locked in place. If that is the case, the card might me defective.

    you should try to format the card at your computer, if you don't have a memory card reader, try to find a friend with a laptop that support it

    Remember to place the folders jeffallen8 posted on the card after the format

    Are you saying that just because it's an old card, that it can't fail? I'd like to know how that was accomplished. Have you tried to format it using your PC? Have you tried to format another card in your BB?

    I have had 2 cards go bad that I have used in several old phones. my latest is a 1gb adate card. After such a long time, they stop working and the sectors go bad. I have fixed one card but after a while it goes bad again and I just ended up replacing. They are cheap to buy. To fix the cards, I put them in the PC and open windows explorer. Right click on the drive letter and do an error checking and select automatically fix errors. Also do another format in Fat32. If this does not work, junk it.

    The card has to be formatted/wiped in a pc before you put it into the BB, then formatted in the phone. That puts the 4 BB folders on it for media (photos, rts, video, music).
