Media Card Size Question
I recently put a 2GB micro card in my Blackberry 8320 which has 4.5os but it only shows the card size as 1.8GB. What happened to the other .2GB????
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~it does that I have one in my 8310 it said the samething your all good
I got 8GB it show 7.4
All memory cards say that, nothing to worry about. ~via BB8830 (wap.pinstack.com)~
Manufacturers just round off the actual number, I just installed a 8gb card in my 4.5 curve but it registers as 7.4gb
Same problem here, oh well

Why does my memory card show less capacity than listed?
(taken from 3rd party website)
There are two main reasons why there is a discrepancy between listed capacity of the memory card and what shows up on your computer. The most likely reason that your 512MB memory card shows up with only 485MB worth of capacity is due to the small discrepancies in algorithms and file formats by various operating systems. Also a portion of memory space is reserved for system files and data sectors for better memory card performance.
The second reason to your card indicating less capacity on the device is due to capacity loss. When manufactured, some devices and card readers were not made to support higher capacity memory cards. An instance of this is 2 GB or higher capacity SD card that shows a memory capacity of 1 GB or less. It is always recommended that you research information on the device manufacturer to verify the correct supported format and capacity.
I got an 8GB and it shows 7.3GB
yeah its all the stuff that zeyrah said
its kinda lengthy to read but thats what it is
lol no real worries to be honest
and its not only like that with media cards it goes for everything thats a storing device (hard drives, memory cards, thumb drives etc etc)
