    Question BlackBerry Curve Media Card

    Advertisement



    I have a 2GB media card in my curve. When I hook my Blackberry curve up via usb to my computer I am able to see the media card. Also I am able to transfer music over to the music folder on my media card. The problem is, when I unplug the usb cord then try to listen to my music on my phone. It tells me no music found!!!! CAN SOME ONE ADVISE ME HOW TO DO THIS!!!!!

    Did you format the card with your BB? (required) What folder is the music in? (please be specific)

    Yes I have formated the card twice. When I hook up my Curve to my computer, which is running windows vista. Blackberry folder pops up on screen has J drive. In that drive I have two folders. New folder and blackberry folder. Inside blackberry folder I have 5 folders. Music, pictures, ringtones, system and videos. I copied all my mp3s to the music folder. But the music does not show up on my phone......

    dont use those folders, keep clicking on the one that says media card above the folders. it takes a minute bt those folders will go away and just media card is highlighted in grey. It is confusing I know.

    Ok then, that seems in order, although mine has no "new folder" nor system. Are you running 4.5 operating system? Are these songs from Itunes or any other protected media source by any chance?

    No, there are some unauthorized copies floating around and they don't play well with media cards, thats why I asked. What is your device that you are running 4.3 on?

    What about my other question about the source of your music?

    My computer has windows Vista on it. And I have a Curve 8320. And all my mp3s are in a folder on my desktop. They copy over to my phones SD Card, but I just cant see them when I go to media player.

    But are they copy protected? For example you cannot play songs you purchased from itunes on your blackberry.

    Try this-- go to this site and DL a few mp3 ringtones and put them in your music folder. See what the result is.

    I had a funky 2gb card once that would not show my music in the media player, but when I used the explore function and went to the music folder that way, I could see and play all of my music fine...just not through the media player itself. Once I got a new 4gb card, the problem was no longer there and I could play music both ways. Just a tidbit there in case it turns out your card is moody like my first one was.

    Not sure if it helps but after unplugging your phone give it a few minutes then check for your music files. It seems to take a few for the phone to read the files with me. Not sure it that's supposed to happen but that's how it works with me
