Ok before every one jumps the gun on telling me how to fix this please read all the way.

 

 

1.I have a BB Storm 9530

 

2.I have an 8gb card that came with it

 

3.Today it stopped reading on my BB and my computer , ie, IT DOES NOT SHOW UP AT ALL ON MY PC, ONLY MY DEVICE MEMORY SHOWS UP.    (sorry, had to stress that)

 

4 . I have tried the "pull the battery, wait 15 secs" trick

 

5. Tried formating..."Failed to Format"

 

6. Tried using formating "TWO" other media cards i have. ."Failed to Format"......and guess what ."Failed to Format"

 

7. I have the newest device softwear for my BB

Re: BlackBerry Storm Media Card not Reading/Formating

Read it all.

 

Question on #6, you say you tried inserting and formatting two other media cards in the same Storm, and no go?

 

So, that means you have you completely removed the Media Card put it back in the Storm.

 

Do you have a Media Card adaptor on which you can read the card and try formatting it FROM you PC (not in the BlackBerry)?

Yes I tried formating two 2gb cards I have in my BB, and they both failed.

 

And when I tried to format on my computer it would not show up, ONLY MY "DEVICE MEMORY".

 

Andy all of my card readers will not pick up my 8gb card, except on my Laptop, and just so conveniently broke the same night my BB went on the fritz. But I should have it fixed in a day or so, stupid corrupted mscoree.dll file.... any ways.

 

And my phone sees the Media cards, it just wont read it or format it.

Try the formatting from a card reader, not viewing on the BB from the PC.

 

Has your device ever been unlocked or used on the MFI Mutlitool software?

Re: BlackBerry Storm Media Card not Reading/Formating

Hi, you responded on someone else's post by asking them if they had had the phone unlocked. I am having the same problem as that person with my memory card not being able to be formatted. Is this linked somehow? I have lost all my memory on my micro SD, and when I use my BOLD9000 I have no problem with the cards, vs with the unlocked 9700 I do. Please help!

About seeing only device memory on PC, is Mass Storage Mode "on," in your Storm 9530?:smileywink:
