Default 4MB Media Card for 8100 pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Help!
my SanDisk 4 GB media card isn't being read by my BB 8100 pearl : I was lead to believe it would be compatible. Anyone else had similar probs?

regards

What OS is your pearl running? AFAIK, You need to upgrade to at least 4.2.1.96 for the 4 GB card to be recognized.

xanmeo,

Please post back and let us whether upgrading to the latest OS works. I know some may flame, but I'm still not 100% certain that all Pearls with the latest OS will accept the 4GB cards. You will be a perfect case since yours doesn't work with the old OS. If it works once you upgrade, that will be proof enough for me.

Thanx!

It works on any Pearl running 4.2.1.94 and up (maybe even 4.2.1.66 too but I don't know anyone with that version anymore.)

And let's please keep this to the other well-established thread.
