    VERY long load times for accessing SD card

    Advertisement



    Whenever I access me memory card on my 8100 it takes a rather long time to open. the only apps I have loaded on my phone are the google utilities (and not even all of them at that) and a few pictures . . . by no means is it full or even close to half.

    Suggestions or settings I can change? Mass media storage is "on".

    do you have alot of music or pictures? also everytime you reboot your phone the first time you access your memory card it has to cache what on there again.

    Nope, only a single downloaded ringtone and MAYBE 5-6 pictures . . .

    just save your pics and your ringtone using DM and then do the format from you BB you dont need to test with a replacement it will not solve the issue at hand with another card

    it won't solve it.. but it could easilly verify a issue with the current card or the reader.

    Well worth a try.. but like fritter suggests, try a format first , it could be heavilly fragmented.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if the format dosent help then I would consider the theme you are using. I found that certain themes will slow access to your media and sd card.just something to consider

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~also check to make sure the sd card is seated properly and locked into place. Hope this helps

    The theme is the Today Plus theme from RIM, and I noticed this issue before switching to this theme. Card is seated properly.

    I will try the format and see if that helps . . . thanks.

    Freeing up memory on my pearl helped things along for me.

    Yeah I had this problem - unfortunately I never found a fix apart from replacing the phone!

    My advice is either take it back to the store, email BB!

    Good luck
