Newbie Qs: how do you check what's stored in media card?

Besides, taking it out and checking it on PC, is there a way to do this through BB?

I just put 2GB card in and it's already 1.8 GB full.

I can account for 0.5GB with pics and songs but like to know and monitor its content.

Verizon 8330 with 4.3 software.

Thanks!

Re: Newbie Qs: how do you check what's stored in media card?

Hi and welcome to the forums,

on 4,3 you can out a 4 or 8gb media card so you are okay there.

DID you notice that instead of a full 2gb, the actual was about 1.8 due to formatting info.

Check the following options:

Media Card window

ON

Encryption

NONE

Mass storage support

ON

auto enable when connected

YES

 

On your media card do you have these folders:

Blackberry

pictures

music

ringtones

videos

voicenotes
This is the folder structure that the Blackberry needs to allocate the media to.

Do you have these folders on your media card?

Please let me know!

Thanks,

Thanks for your reply.

All options were set right except auto enable when connected.

You are right it's 1.8GB total.

But I have only 101.6MB free.

I'd have to check the card content on PC at home later.

I can't check this from the BB, correct?

Will write soon!

You can also explore media card content from device as well. Go to Media -> click Menu -> Explore -> Media Card.
