    I tried posting under installed write protected, no answer.
    Surely there must be someone here who can point me in the direction of how to use this card?
    The
    OPTIONS>MEDIA CARD>
    shows
    Media card Support = on
    Encryption Mode OFF
    Mass Storage Mode Support = ON
    Auto Enable Storage Mode when Connected = YES

    Then undeneath
    " The media card is not availabler because Mass Storage Mode is Currently in use.


    The above message is shown when I am connected to the PC>

    When I disconnect from PC it shows my 14.9 GB available.


    I want to load music.

    When I use the Desktop Manager I can get one song to transfer and then I an notified that the BB is out of memory...

    When I use the USB adapter, the properties of the card declare that it is write protected.

    Please help
    PM me or something

    Did you format the card at all? If you don't have anything on it, try formatting it. (Formatting will erase everything on the card)

    I still dont know how to transfer files....
    If I use the microsd card in the usb adapter, the properties tell me it is write protected and will not allow me to place files on it.

    Neither the card nor the adapter have any sort of "
    switch" on them...

    OK, for now...

    Don't use it in the USB adapter, (I assume you mean a card reader), just plug your device directly in to the computer, and open it via Windows Explorer.

    Do NOT use Media Manager in DM--it's garbage.

    You have mass storage enabled so plug your Berry into your computer and it will show up as another drive. Drag what you want on to the card and enjoy.

    I have the BB connected to the PC. Physically that is. I open the Windows Explorer and do not see the BB

    Well, there's also always the chance that it's a faulty card. Do you have any others that you could try this with?

    if i use the usb adapter it shows the directory structure that the bb initialises. and if i go to bb options>media card> it shows it. along with available space of 14.9 GB.

    Perhaps it is defective.

    Make sure you have the most recent OS installed. The older OS won't support the 16 gb media card.

    I think upgrading recent OS is good idea.
