This is after reformatting the media card in order for my BB to be functional. Let me know if you need more information. Thanks.

Your free memory seems low. My memory runs at 45 to 46 mb and I have several add on apps.
I do not know your experience level, but before we can isolate to the media card please read this:
Press the alt escape key (>looks like that) together and it will show you the applications you have running.
Most people close the applications by pressing the escape or red key. This does not close the applications.
Each application has a CLOSE option. For instance if you are in the calendar hit the menu key (spotted key) and scroll down to the bottom CLOSE is listed. Go through each application and press close. Go into the browser press menu and options select cache operations clear all categories and hit escape it will say cleaning memory.
Go to options - security - memory cleaning - enable it. The BB will now clean memory when idle for 5 minutes.
you will have an icon on you screen for memory cleaning make sure you press it.
Let me know what you think, and we'll go from there!

You definitely have the right OS to support an 8gb card. I have searched the knowledgebase and cannot find a like example of your problem. Can you borrow another card and see if the effect is still there?
I know this is basic, but you're sure you have the music on the media card and not device memory?
Can you swap it for a new one from the vendor?
Please let me know, so we can fix this!
I have not been able to borrow a card. I might by a new one and if it works I'll return the one I have to Amazon. The music is on the memory card, I put the music on it before I put it in the Blackberry.
I noticed youasked rayc if content compression and content protection is enabled. Is this important?

Content compression is self explanatory, content protection is so the data on BB cannot be accessed by third parties. It will slow your system down to a crawl, I just tried it last week when I put a password in.
One of those "seemed like a good idea at the time" deals that wasn't

Thank you very much for your suggestion to perform a memory cleaning. Pressing Alt and Esc together appear to only call up the Application Switch Menu which includes closed applications. Regardless, my file free size did increase slightly to 33,574,600 bytes. Not quite what you have at around 42 MB.
With 300 MB of MP3s uploaded to my media card so far, my BB is still functioning at normal speeds similar to when my media card was reformatted. Looks like your suggestion fixed my problem. Thanks again!

You are exactly right, it does take time for the indexing, and it only happens when you load the music, Good point I forgot to mention that!

Glad you got it running!
