Do you have the mass storage enabled on the Curve? Check the following link:

When you say it doesn't work, are you receiving any error messages? Also, does the BlackBerry show up as a drive letter when you connect it to the computer?

Connect it to the computer and see if it shows up as a drive letter. If it does, then right click on the drive letter, then go to Properties, then Tools. Click on the Check Now button in the Error Checking section. Check off Automatically Fix File System errors and then click OK.

how about you put it back in you pearl... hook it up to your computer (mass storage mode) then copy and paste all of the info onto your PC. then move the card to your curve, format it, then connect back to your computer and move everything back on it?

will take a while to do all those step but that should clear it all up
