    media card not showing up

    Advertisement



    I've got leopard and a Verizon Pearl and my phone prompts me to use my card as a mass storage device - I say "yes" but I can't get it to show up in my finder or on my desktop. Anyone have similar problem and/or a solution?

    leopard may not be seeing it as a mass storage device.. maybe need to get a leopard mac driver for it to work with it.. leopard seems to have lots of issues since its release.

    If I format the card will I'll lose everything on it, right? It was formatted for my 8830 and has videos, pictures and music on it.

    Yeah don't format the card until you have the information in a safe location.

    If you can't get your computer to recognize the card try a card reader. But first make sure mass storage is enabled. Go to options/media card. From there just scroll down to Mass Storage Mode Support if its off turn that puppy on!

    Not saying you don't already know that but I've turned mine off a few times and forgot that I did it ha!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    OK, I tried the card reader and that works fine. This happened when I first got the Pearl and now it's happening again: everytime I click to enable card as mass storage device the phone reboots and then asks me again. I double checked and mass storage is enabled. I guess I'll just use the card reader. I sync using missing sync and that works great. Everything (except loading third party applications) works fine when I boot up in PC mode via boot camp.

    I have the same problem in Tiger OS 10.4.11. I cannot check the "yes" to enable reading the media card on my Verizon Pearl. If I do, it ends up resetting my blackberry. I can sync with PocketMac ok if I check "no". Any ideas on what to do?
