Cool 83xx series not supporting - possible fix

Please Login to Remove!

I ran into a similar problem that you can try. I have an 8300 and got a 6gb card for it. The unit recognizes it but through Roxio and Windows Explorer, they did not see the card properly. Windows wanted to reformat it at 1.69gb and the Roxio software wouldn't see it (though it knew something was there). When I connected the card directly to the pc w/ the adapter, it saw it as a 6gb drive and I could copy things to it (or move files over from memory when in the 8300).

Solution: Take the card out and put it in the usb adapter and reformat it (fat32) on your computer to 6gb. Try it again in the unit. It showed up through explorer and the Roxio software and can now use it while still in the device. I've found in the past that any memory cards (of whatever type) give you less problems if you reformat them first on your computer.

Yes, this has been reiterated on these forums, however the experience that we all seem to be observing is that once you actually put more than 1.7 GB of data on the 6GB card it will become unusable from the device.

Default still confused 2gb or 4gb for 8310?

Hi,


I'm new to this forum and to Blackberry. I just got the curve 8310 and need a microsd card. Which one is the best that will support using 4.2.2 version from Sandisk...the microsd 2gb or the microsdhc 4gb. I've read a few threads but still confused or not convinced which one will work for 8310.

Thanks
