Mirco SD Problem

[ Edited ]
I'm trying to us a 4gb hc micro sd card in my 8310 Curve.  I have updated the software on my curve to v4.5.  I don't have another computer to format the card.  My Curve recognizes the card but won't format the card.  I have a mac with pocketmac and it won't recognize the card.  can anyone help me?

Re: Mirco SD Problem

When you say it recognizes the card--do you see a file size at Options > Media Card? What does it say?


Open the Media Icon > Menu > Explore, do you see the choice of Device Memory and Media Card?

When i say recognize the card i mean that  the curve knows that there is a card there but it can't read it or give any other information about it.  I have the option to format the card or install media when i hit the menu button.  Neither option works.  I have mass storage support turned off.

Re: Mirco SD Problem


you have to find a way to format your memory card. If you can't do it with the Blackberry, you have to do it with a card reader : a USB one or the one included in your laptop if you have one.
