Media Card

I have a 8330 BlackBerry. When I go to Options and click on Media Card, it says, "Media card cannot be read. Verify that the memory card is formatted". When I format it I get a message that reads, "Media Card Format Failed".  Any solutions?

I recommend that you take the media card out of the phone and try to read it on a PC.  If it reads OK, I would then back up the files on the card (on to the PC) and format the card using the PC's system which is more thorough than the phones format system.

If you have problems reading the media card on your PC, use the data recovery tools in your PC operating system to try and recover the media card contents.

 

If the PC format is successful, then return the media card to your phone and see if can be read.  You may need to format it (in the phone).  FYI;  format in the phone typically is just to create the folders for your files (pictures, music, documents, etc.).

Now copy your 'backed up' files from the PC onto the media card and you should be good.

 

If none of these operations are successful, you may have a damaged media card and need a replacement.

 

Good luck.
