Curve not detecting Memory Card of Bold

I have recently switched from my Bold handset to Curve, as Bold was to go for repairs. I am trying to use Memory Card (same as was being used in Bold) but it is not detecting any media in it. all music & picture file are although visible if i connect Curve to my laptop & browse via Blackberry Software. But while browsing in curve handset, it doesn't shows any media.

Both the devices had password protection enabled

I tried some permutations with Encryption properties but it didnt work

Please help

Re: Curve not detecting Memory Card of Bold

Hello vanitakoushik,


Try transferring (backing up) media from your media card to a PC and then try reformatting the card. You can use the information in the below article to help with formatting the card. 


Media card cannot be read. Verify that the memory card is formatted

Re: Curve not detecting Memory Card of Bold

this is the best solution for him and I really recommend it. But I don't think that this is a problem with the memory card cause it works on the bold I think it's problem with his curve.
