"Built-in Media Storage not accessible due to detected errors"
Most times when I re-boot the phone (but not always), I get an error message that says "Built-in Media Storage not accessible due to detected errors. Do you wish to repair it now?" I always answer yes, then get notified that all is well ("Built-In Media Repair Successful." and I move on in life.
but its troubling frequency has got me wondering... Presumably the "Built-in Media Storage" is actually a sub-set of the device main memory. should I be running some diagnostic and repair on that as well?
Note that I have all my music, podcasts, camera pictures and picture library on the media card, and to my knowledge do not have anything in the "built-in media storage" - nor frankly do I know how even to access it.
oh wise crackberry gurus, any thoughts?

I assume by "built-in" it is in fact referring to the non-removable 4GB. You can try backing up any files you might have and using Windows to format the drive while your phone is plugged in to the computer.

It's possible the internal memory could be failing. He won't know until he formats it and continues to have the problems. I'd do a full format (not quick) to make sure there are no errors.
I'm not 100% sure it's referring to the internal - there's a chance the wording could be unintentional and it could be the MicroSD causing the problem. Be careful to try and determine which one it actually is...you might first try the format and if it still happens, see if it occurs with the MicroSD removed...

I know I'm coming late to the game here, but I've encountered the same thing on my 9810....never on my 9800.
All my sd card data is accessible, ei....pix, etc...and all 3rd party app data is also available.
I google searched the issue and landed on this post, among others. The answer is nowhere
I'm reduced to thinking I should wipe & reinstall everything manually as to not "reintroduce" the corruption.
I'd almost rather receive a kick in the head than wipe and reinstall.....

Hallo BlackBerry users, Kindly be advised that on OS6 phones like the 9800 Torch you can go to options, device, storage. Scroll down to the section "Built-in Media Storage" and press on the BlackBerry bar and select format. Also be aware that all media on the phone itself will be demolished so please keep a backup aside.
I will not be answering questions in my mailbox due to the fact that I don't visit Crackberry often, however you may add me on BBM 28112A4D or add me on Facebook: Marnus Matthysen.
