    I would take it out and format it on the computer, put it back in ur berry and not reformat it... I have never needed to reformat a memory card to get it to work in my blackberry

    Here is the list of OS's and their memory card capabilities:
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.0 Up to 2GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1 Up to 4GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2 Up to 4GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.0 Up to 8GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.0 Up to 8GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.0.81 and above Up to 16 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.6.0 Up to 16GB

    Generally, I don't format any media, unless it's not working, so formatting it on your computer like benzworm said might solve your issue, otherwise you might have to reformat your media card again after you upgrade your OS.
