    Sorry to say it sounds like you got a bad card, i would contact ebay or the seller, i always stick with sandisk, i have and eight gb in my tour i bought of Treo Accessories - Blackberry Accessories - Blackberry Case, Blackberry Bluetooth, Blackberry Charger, Blackberry Battery, Cell Phone Accessories - Fommy.com. Never had any issues at all.

    Can you put the card in an adapter and copy files to it using your PC? If you can, that might suggest a problem with the card holder in your Bold.

    I bought one too, 16gb from China, would not format, tried adapters no help. got it to install in phone, but when I tried to load anything it failed. I used buy it now on ebay and ebay canceled the auction, but I had already bought it, so I got the ok from paypal to send it back.
    There are a lot of sandisk clones out there. I am just going to buy one at a store, the price may be higher but at least it will work.
    Just send it back use the resolution center on ebay and tell them it is a copy not original.

    Sad it happened, Play.co.uk usually has very cheap, original, sdhc cards.
    Amazon.com is an option if you are not in the UK.

    Now if you are here in Brasil, don't expect to find any cheap ones...
