    Default 9700: 32GB SD Card, Slow Navigation

    I installed a 32GB SD card (with about 17 GBs of MP3s). Now the menu navigation is unacceptably 'laggy'. The time from input to response is measured in 30+ seconds. I suspect that the database used create the MP3s is the problem. Any constructive suggestions are good. Examples would be ideal. Thank you.

    Update: Freed up 300MB, so that the SD card is no longer full. Rebooted and received error message:

    "Media card can not be accessed due to fatal errors"

    Does this mean that I've bumped up against the limit of the number of media files the handset will allow (~3000 media files)?

    first step is to go to Options > Device > Storage then click the BlackBerry key and select Repair it will take a minute or two (probably longer considering you have 32GB) and then you will receive a prompt telling you Media Card Repair Successful

    like Fubaz said what class is your memory card ? you should have a class 10 as it has better read and write speeds , class 2 and 4 are too slow for blackberry , class 6 is okay for 16GB/8GB , class 10 for 32GB since its such a larger micro sd card

    I think the phone's processor is a bit too slow to be able to handle all that data. My 16GB card had accumulated a ton of media on it and it lagged badly when u were scrolling through the pics. You should try defragmentating the media card while its in the BB and connected to the PC, I found that it increased performance noticeably, but didn't exactly work a miracle.

    This could be due to the fact that the blackberry 9700 only supports to a maximum of 16 gb sd cards.

    i would recommend going into BBDM, connecting the phone, and "show hidden" in files, go Media Card>Blackberry>System>Media and delete the largest two files(maybe 3) and see if that helps.

    yup... i believe so... as 9700 maximum micro SD card reading is UP TO 16GB.
    btw, BB is a good multimedia device as well but with that much of songs u might as well use a different MP3 player. and those can maximise your BB experience.
