    card works till it loaded up

    The card works till I load it up with 5 gig of mp3's using BB media sync.
    Then it tells me I have a card with an error. I reformat the card, start from scratch, load it up, get the same result.
    Thanks

    tk,

    What error message are you getting?

    Any chance you got a bad card? I try to stick with the bigger names, Sandisk, PNY, Kingston etc....

    Instead of using media manager try enabling mass storage mode and see if you can get past 5 Gb that way. If it came with an adaptor to make it fit devices that use regular SD cards and you have one that supports SDHC then try it in there too.

    For that matter, what version of DM are you using? The table mentions the card support, but I haven't seen anything about if a particular DM version is needed.

    I was just about to suggest enabling Mass Storage. I don't use media manager at all (I install DM without it at all costs).


    I open the Search function on my PC to find my music. Then I find my BB Music folder (My Computer>BlackBerry>Music). I then just drag and drop the music I want from one location to the other.

    media sync

    I use blackberry media sync.
    I syncs with a playlist in itunes. (change playlist in itunes hit sync and your updated)

    (not allowed to place a link yet)

    I have had a great deal of success with it with my 4 gig card.

    I think I got a bad card, I got corrupted files when I put avi's on it thru windows.

    Thanks,

    Dunno what specifically this means - you can't use regular avi's on an 8100 (at least I've never been able to). They have to be converted (ideally into 3GP format, though some MP4's work too).

    sorry

    the avi's were a test of the microsd card in a usb adapter in windows, not in the phone. the hong kong microsd didnt work as a storage device on a pc either. That is what I meant to say.

    Does the USB adapter support SDHC (cards more than 2 Gb?).
