    How To: Format MicroSD Card in 8100 Pearl

    Advertisement



    If you need to format your MicroSD card in an 8100, there are two options.
    The first, and recommended, is to have your device format the card. This can be done by doing the following:

    Options/Advanced Options/Media Card-Then click the Menu button, scroll to format card and click ok.

    The second option is mainly why I am writing this. If you use your computer to format the card, then try and add information to the card, you will see that it does not appear when you go to click on the media card memory at all.

    To fix this, simply format the media card on your device, then re-try.

    The Blackberry Folder and Video/Music/Ringtones/Pictures subfolders will then reappear.

    what do you do when the card doesn't format? I just bought a 1gig card and it doesn't want to format--it says "Memory card format failed"

    You may have a defective card. Try formating it in a PC to see if it is bad. If it formats on the PC, try again in your BB.

    hope this helps

    Re: How To: Format MicroSD Card in 8100 Pearl

    I bought a microSD card but I didn't have to format it. What's the deal with that? It hasn't been messed up or anything but I was just wondering.

    Thanks in advance,

    COJO 24, Is it working? Do you have the all the correct folders? Did you create them or were they created for you?

    Re: How To: Format MicroSD Card in 8100 Pearl

    My card works fine and all the folders were automatically put on or they were already on the card so idk what's up with that. I thought it came pre-installed like that or something but I guess I was wrong. So my actual question is what's the deal with me not having to format the card when I installed it?

    Thanks in advance,

    COJO 24
