- First Time Posting...
I just got a 9900 from Bell and for some reason the Micro SD card (which worked in a former 9900) doesn't read. It doesn't show it even being installed. Perhaps something I am doing wrong? It also won't sync my Calanders, but that is a whole other issue haha. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

- *what type of Micro SD?
1) Unplug your BB from the computer. Go to Options> Device >Storage> Enable Media Card Support, plug it back in.
2) If that doesn't work...
a) Copy the data from your MicroSD over to your computer using a MicroSD Adapter.
Format your MicroSD using your computer (My Computer > Right click the card > Format
b) Copy the data back over to your MicroSD and re-insert into your BB.
3) If that doesn't work...
a) Repeat 2a
b) Insert your blank SD into your BB and boot it up. Connect to computer
c) If it reads it, then copy over your data folder by folder using the USB connection but keep the folder structure that the BB created on your newly formatted MicroSD.
Let us know if you fix it!11-09-11 01:35 PMLike 1
- I had to adjust the position of mine to get it to even show up. Not in far enough it isn't seen, too far in and the same result. The edge of my card is pushed in just past the frame with contacts facing down and works great. Hope this helps.

- Thank you so much for the advise.
I tried formatting the card as well as adjusting the position of the card yet my phone still reads "Media Card is not presently inserted in the device.".
It's odd, because the same card worked in my first 9900 perfectly every time, even with the same files. I tried another Micro SD as well with the same result. Haunted phone...11-09-11 05:23 PM
- Make sure your card is formatted in FAT32 and is of 32k cluster size.I have had problems with mine up until I formatted as mentioned..also 32G sandisk class 4.
I personally used SDformatter,which is said to bring more speed from your SD memory cards than Windows default format app. Just google it..its the first one.

- is this becoming a more frequent issue as people get used to their bold's 9900? i just got mine from someone on craigslist and go figure i check that everything works fine except the sd card... i think the glamour and hype of this phone had me so eager to just play with it myself. By any chance, what is the manufacturer's warranty on these things? because i hope im not stuck with no sd card reader :/01-27-12 02:02 AM
- I checked my micro sd in the computer it was recognized.
Then reinserted into phone, carefully and all the way this time.
Was recognized. It's a PNY 32 class 10. It has about 29.8 gb
usable space as the format files take up the others.

Try to remove the name from your SD Card. I gave a name to my card, and after that my BB9900 stop recognizing the card. After when I deleted the name of the card, the phone recognized again...
Try... Maybe helps.

- I had a card from a different ver. phone - Bold 9650. Kept fiddling and fiddling to get it work in 9930 and finally just backed it up to my computer, and reformatted it in the phone using their software. Rebooted and it came up saying it recognized the card finally. Then I dumped my files back onto it. Also had an issue where the new 9930 had an IT Policy on it from the company it came from. Nothing was doable until I got rid of this IT Policy. And man that was a hassle.03-13-13 02:25 PM

- Well, this reply is kind of late, but maybe my experience will help some readers with the same condition as mine. When I received (yeah received, because I'm jobless and this unit was handed to me by my high-earning brother LOL) my BB, I transferred my SD card. But my phone can't recognize it, keep on saying "No Card Inserted" something like that. Then I remembered, I set a SD card password before with another device. So, I tried to reinserted my card into the old device, erased the password, then Voila! My problem is solved, just like that. :-)07-24-13 08:43 AM
I certainly have a resolution which resolves my issues. I found that the USB drive would not show up on my computer either. It turns out that the drive had somehow become hidden. I found that the following process meant I could once again select Media Card for Media sync in BlackBerry Desktop Software.
Note: If you can see your Media Card in the Computer view of your PC then this probably won’t help you!
- Plug in your Blackberry and select USB Drive when the menu appears on your Device.
- Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management.
- Choose Disk Management from the list pane in the Computer Management Console.
- Look through the drives and you might find one that does not have a drive letter or name assigned. If so, assign a drive letter by Right clicking on the drive and choosing Change Drive Letter and Paths...
- Disconnect your BlackBerry Device.
- Remove (including all settings) and then Reinstall BlackBerry Desktop Software and all being well you will see the MediaCard option appear when you plug-in and set-up.
Note: You will more than likely need to have Administrator privileges to carry out all or some of this process!
