    Smile SD Micro chip Problems!!!

    Advertisement



    Found out that it's my SD Micro Kingston chip (one gig) that had the problem and not im Pearl. It wouldn't read once i formatted it and it stored info but wouldn't show up on my pearl. It kept sayin mass storage was in use... drove me crazy! Thinkin it was my 8100 i deleted my device's info (wiped handheld), didn't loose everythang just all the important ish! ..

    Had to buy a sandisk micro SD card ( only 512MB) i bought it loaded it up with all my music and junk and it worked fine! stupid Kingston chip!! DON'T BUY THE KINGSTON CHIP FAMILY!! waste of money,
    Sir Anthony

    Well along with default of the Kingston sd card i'll admit a slite mixture of human error had somethin to do wit it

    But be sides that! The KSton chip aint pearl friendly at the moment! And yeah I formatted it and it tripped on me like if I owed it money! So I said hell with it! I use it now just to hold pictures in it, it,s crazy cuz if I format the silly chip it'll work in my pearl perfect but once I hook the usb port to it to down load junk it says mass storage is in use and I disconnected it from the pc and it still says that! And won't let me see media, it tells me it can't read media card and try formattin it! Its an endless loop (chain of misery!) so now I just avoid hookin it up to the pc while KSton chip is in it. I'll stick wit sandisk fo now!

    Re: SD Micro chip Problems!!!

    To format or not to format?! That is the question!

    Dude formattin is what it says, it automatictly sets the folders in the micro disk, when we by the Kingston or sandisk or any of the micro chips we use for the BB's it is naked (with out files or folders) its blank. Formattin it sets the rules of order like. If you can look at the media card from a pc u'll see folders in it that contain ur music videos and porn flics you keep hidden from yo girl friend(s) @ HyperM3

    It's just my luck to end up with this problem! My remedy is to neva format again and just manually put the folders in the micro chip myself, learn from me ppls. Cuz it can happen to u too. I lost ALL my pictures and I'm still in rehab tryin to cope

    Re: SD Micro chip Problems!!!

    Honestly, I didnt format my disc, just set it for mass storage. It automatically set up the folders when I did that or at least they were there when I plugged the phone to the computer.

    BTW, my girl suggested which porn flic to keep on the pearl...
