Default BB 9700 after Sys Upgrade will not recognize or format media card

Please Login to Remove!

I recently did a system upgrade on my BB 9700. Immediately afterwards I was informed that the media card need to be formatted. Which I did and was rewarded with the message Media Card Format Failed. By now I have tried two new SD cards with the same message when formatting on the BB. I formatted the two new cards successfully on my PC. But when they were inserted into the BB they requested formatting. I did this only to be rewarded with the final message of Media Card Format Failed.

I am beginning to suspect that the problem is either due to the system software upgrade OR the media card port has gone defective.

Any help will be appreciated.

Seems like too much coincidence that hardware would have broke at same time. I would reinstall the OS and see what happens. I might think about loading the old OS over again, first, test, then load the new OS and test. Or maybe just load the new OS again right away and see what you see.
