MicroSD card stopped working.....HELP!
I have had my Curve for about one year and all of a sudden yesterday my MicroSD media card stopped working. I have tried to format...take it out of the back and put it back in, but nothing seems to work. When I go to options<media card..it says the media card isn't readable/recognized and to make sure it is formatted. When I format, it says media card format failed. Someone please help....thank you!

I had the same problem happen today! When I checked my phone this a.m., nothing would work. I took out the battery and "rebooted" it. Everything came back except the media card. I connected to the computer and I have gotten the same messages that you have. When I go the the Media Card section within the phone, it says to install media card. I click it, it pauses, and nothing....its like there is not a media card at all.
Anyone found a solution? I have been dealing with this all day! I'm very frustrated!
That is sooo crazy! I have been stuck on my phone all day trying to figure out what the heck happened. I haven't found a solution, but I did call Verizon and they are shipping me a replacement phone next week so I can figure out if its my phone that's defective, or the card itself. Don't know who your carrier is...but I would give them a call and see what they can do. Now I feel a bit better knowing somebody else out there is going through the same as me..lol. Hope this helps ya. Goodluck!

I've had this happen to me. I used a targus usb adaptor and connected to computer. From there u want to format. Then run disk check. U might as well start with simplest settings. Run it. Then repeat each time stepping up settings.
After that put card back in and then format for bb.
If u don't have adaptor u can do same thing. Again just look for in explorer and run disk check.

I tried formatting it on my desktop and the message is "Windows was unable to format this disk."
Should I just get a new media card?

same thing happened to me today. i was in the middle of using my phone, checking messages. and got a message that said the media card had been removed. now the phone, computer, etc won't read the media card. which really sucks because all my ringtones and pics are on there.weird that this has happened to a bunch of others within the last month or so....

okay my blackberry bold 9700 flat out stopped recognizing my sd card after months of it working too. I pulled the battery and took the sd card out and put all back in using various different orders of doing things...nothing worked. So i tried to update the music on it through blackberry desktop to see if that would help the phone realize it had a memory card...still didn't work.
The funny thing is though...my brother's (nonblackberry) phone read the card without a problem. So it's not the card.
Anyone have any idea what to do?

These microSDHC cards are flaky at best. I've had cards give me random errors for no reason at all. I've never been able to transfer a card between phones without having problems with it, even after reformatting the card. The medium is good for portable media on our phones, but don't try to use it as a reliable backup. It is not!OS: 184.108.40.2063
I am a CrackBerry addicted zombie! I take it everywhere with me except the shower. I've forgotten how to communicate face to face or even talk to people. Don't call me; text me, email me, BBM me, DM me on Twitter or IM me. Text is the future of communication because it is quick, private and fun.

if a battery pull and taking out and putting back in the card doesnt work the slot is fried or the card is junk, i would try another sd card and see if the phone responds, if not than the sd slot is fried and you need to get a replacement, if not and the second card works the origional card is busted
