Media Card space

So I got a media card to expand my BB Curve Titanium's storage capacity.  I bought an 8GB card that did not work when I tried to format it so i bought another one (different brand) from another store and this one formatted just fine.  However, after it formatted the total and free space available said 3.3GB.  Where did the other 4.7GB go??

Re: Media Card space

Please make note that the maximum media card space is set by your OS on the BlackBerry (options > About).


So, compare your OS to the chart and see what your max media card size is.
