BB Curve 8520 : Too many files per directory ?

Hello,

I recently bought a 16 GB micro-SD card, and formatted it for my BlackBerry Curve 8520, but when I try to copy the entire content of my music folder (about 2000 files) in the card, my BlackBerry tells me the card contains some errors and i need to format it again. However it works when I only put a small amount of files on the card (for example, 50 music files). Is there a way to fix this ? Do i need to split my music into different folders or something ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Actually, based on what you stated, I'm thinking it might actually be a bad segment in the card, that's not used until you load enough data to it. I've not heard of a limit on the number of files, but I suppose it's possible.

To test, you should perhaps try loading 1999 files to the folder. And/or try a different card, as well as use your card in a different BB. All of this should be done with "known good"...make sure that the cards you test are know to be functional elsewhere, etc.

Good luck!

Hello,

After several tries, it appears that my BlackBerry simply didn't like the songs with japanese characters in their title. I just renamed some of my songs and now it works perfectly !

Thank you
