Re: media card

Hello leticiadt1


Welcome to the forums. 


The first thing I would suggest is trying a different media card in your device to see if you have the same issue. If another media card works then we can narrow the issues down to the media card. If another media card does not work then it could be a software issue. 


In this case we can try to reload the software on the BlackBerry® smartphone to make sure it is running the latest version and there are no issues with the OS.

Here is how to backup your BlackBerry smartphone http://bbry.lv/oPVWXc

Once you have backed up your BlackBerry smartphone please follow the link below to complete a clean reload of the BlackBerry smartphone software.

Once completed test it and proceed with a selective restore, here is how to restore http://bbry.lv/qgQxLo

If a software reload does not correct the issue then it would appear to be a hardware issue and you will want to contact your wireless service provider or point of sale for options. 


Hope this helps. Have a good day.
