Hi guys. I hope someone can help me. I'm at my wit's end! I've read a couple of things online about this problem but can't seem to find a solution.
I've got an unlocked T-Mobile 8100 on AT&T in which I'm trying to use a SanDisk 8GB Micro SD card.
My problem is that while the card is recognized by the BB itself, it's not recognized at all by my PC. It's not recognized in Roxio Media Manager (all it can access is the Device Memory) or in Windows as a Mass Storage Device, even though this is enabled. Windows just doesn't do anything after the BB has been first attached, recognized and installed automatically. Nothing at all related to the BB is listed in Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management. There are no other devices attached taking up lower drive letters (there's just the C: and DVD drive).
I've tried a bunch of other things to get it to work, with no luck:
I have tried different versions of the Desktop Manager, including the latest version. I've tried cleanly uninstalling and reinstalling the Desktop Manager.
I've tried two different micro SD cards.
I've tried the latest official OS (formatted by the phone to 4GB, as per the OS's limitations), plus the betas of 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 (both formatted by the phone to maximum capacity).
I have tried formatted the card using my PC.
I have made sure I have these settings:
Media Card Support: ON
Mass Storage Mode Support: ON
Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected: YES
I've tried more than one computer.
Any assistance solving this would be very much appreciated.
