cant install my media card

I feel like an **bleep**.  I just purchased a 2GB microSD media card for my BB (Curve 8330) and i can't get the #$*&#( thing IN.  I've taken out the battery, i've unlocked the media card door, but when i slide the card in with the contacts touching, the door won't close, much less lock.  I've even had my 13 year old try to do it and he can't figure it out either.  I don't think i've put it in wrong...it won't even go IN the other way.  What else can i do?

I believe the card mounts IN the door. There are slots that the cards fits into. Line up the contacts, put the card IN the door slots and close.

Re: cant install my media card

I had a similar problem and took it to a watchmaker (they are used to working with small) and he fixed it.

If that does not work, have him remove the sliding mechanism and then use masking tape to keep the card in place. Low tech but it works.

Re: cant install my media card

Ragorman is right. The memory card fits in the "door" first and then the door closes. Kinda like the way you would put a cassette into the door and then close it. You should see little notches on either side of the "door" when it is open. Just slide the memory card into those grooves then push the whole thing down and push over the locking mechanism.
