    8800 sd card formatting problem

    Advertisement



    I just installed a 2GB Sandisk micro card. I went to options - media card - and the hit blackberry key and format card. The screen then locks up and the phone shuts down and reboots. I then get some message saying the media card needs to be formatted. I have tried every possible setting in media card, taken the battery out, and tried to format a 100 times. I saw something on another site that gave me the impression that others have had this problem. Oh, I also first thought that the card was bad so I purchased another one with the same result. HELP!!!

    I didn't know that the card needed formatting. Mine didn't.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Have you guys tried formatting it with a PC? I believe the cards should be formatted FAT32 for maximum compatibility.

    I formatted mine on my pc using my desktop charger plug. Once I did that I haven't had any additional problems.
