Memory card

I put a 32 gb card in my BlackBerry Bold 9900 but it doesn't recognize it. Does anybody know how to do this or what the largest card it will take is?

Re: Memory card

Hi and welcome to the forums



Check that your device OS can support the 32 GB card, and if so make sure the card is formatted correctly.

Re: Memory card

The 9900 does support a 32gb card, no problems there.


Could it be a bad card?

Do have an adapter from which you can view the card contents on your PC, or possibly reformat the card from the PC?
