Issues with 4gb mirco SD card working in my 8310

 

Hi all...Im having issues with my 8310 blackberry curve reading my SanDisk 4gb mircodisk.  I have even replaced it twice and the same thing keeps happenin.  It works for a couple of days and then in my options it says Media card cannot be read.  Verify the memory card is formatted.  So i choose the option to format and i get an error that says Media Card Format Failed.  Any Help?

hello,

try and find a PC that can read a 4GB file, and format the card with that PC.

I wouldn't have done more than you ! :-(
Do you have a friend who owns a microSD card and could lend it to you so that you can put it in your device ?

My guess is that there is a physical problem when you insert the memory card into your device. Maybe you can go to your carrier's shop and have them look.
