    A Micro SD Card must be 15mm × 11mm × 0.7mm or it won't fit in the slot!

    Or did you mean what's the most memory supported? Well THAT depends on the OS Version. Here's the info from KB05461:
    • OS 4.2.0 - Up to 2GB
    • OS 4.2.1 - Up to 4GB
    • OS 4.2.2 - Up to 4GB
    • OS 4.3.0 - Up to 8GB

    Fine, I'll just cut a few mm off this oversized one, and it will be compatible

    So this is a OS 4.3 issue, interesting, guess I'm one person awaiting its release...

    8GB card in 8820

    I have a 8820 with a 4.2.2 OS. I put in a 8GB card and it read the whole card. I then pressed format to clear the card and it formatted it to 4GB. Is there anyway to reformat this to 8GB?

    As noted above, only 4.3 OS (and higher) support 8GB. Good news is that OS 4.5 should be out for the 8820 before the end of the month.

    You can try formatting it as Fat32 and then creating the standard directory structure. You'd be better off putting the SD card into a reader for this, although you should be able to do it in Mass Storage Mode too. This assumes the SD card mounts as the X: drive. On your computer click on Start --> Run, type CMD and click [OK] on your computer, then type the following commands in the resulting command prompt window:
    • FORMAT X: /FS:FAT32 /Q /X
    • MD X:\BlackBerry
    • MD X:\BlackBerry\music
    • MD X:\BlackBerry\pictures
    • MD X:\BlackBerry\ringtones
    • MD X:\BlackBerry\videos

    If your SD card mounts as a different drive like O: replace all X: above with O:

    NOTE: I do NOT know if this will work, but if it doesn't, just reformat the card in your BlackBerry, and you won't be any worse off than you are now.
