    I have a 8330 thats about a month old. I purchased a 8GB media card for it, but everytime I to format the card my BB locks up and I have to pull the battery to restart it. Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Try formatting it on your PC, just label it BlackBerry and your phone should be able to recognize it.

    I agree. I had that happen about a year ago and had to Preformat it by creating a blackberry file. then all the files within that exactly how they look on a formatted card

    I had the same exact problem.
    There is a formatting issue.
    Use a card reader, format the card on your computer.
    Then format it in the phone. If it still causes issues there is a bad sector on the card and replace it.
