    New BB user, Media card wont format!

    Advertisement



    hey just got a new BB and the media card says its not formatted, thing is that when i try to format it, it wont do it.
    just comes up with a thing saying Media card formatting failed or something like that...

    any clues?
    the media card does work becuase it was tested in another BB.
    Cheers

    are you trying to format it from your BB or from a PC? try formatting from within BB...go to options-->media card-->hit menu key-->(if connected to desktop manager already with mass storage mode in operation) choose remove media card option from menu; otherwise on to next step-->format and in a few moments to minutes it will be reformatted...hope this helps and welcome to the stacks

    actaully it seams the media card isnt working with my phone because when i try to bluetooth songs onto it (because couldnt transfer them via PC) it sill wouldnt let me...but i know its not the media card becuase we tested it on a different BB.
    is that just because the media card isnt formatted?

    when you hook your phone up to your PC, go to drive C, if your PCs drive is listed AND your BBS drive is listed its recognizing it, if not you may have a bad card

    Just got my media card back from the bloke i sold it to, he says it works fine..

    i go into applications, then options, advanced options, media card..and it says media card cannot be read, varify that the media card is formatted.
    so i bring up option page and click format media card. It then says warnging. Media formatting media card will destroy and data stored. Do you wish to continue? I click yes, it takes a few moments and then it comes up with Media Card Format Failed.

    Any ideas?
    cheers
