Default Question on Memory/bytes....

Please Login to Remove!

it shows 0 bytes on file free. Would this be effecting some slow downloads?App memory is 0,devicememory is 859 mb,free space 856 mb. Do I need a memory card? How big a one?

Pull your battery and then proceed immediately to:

Good luck!

Well, you won't lose whatever is left. The BB will automatically start to delete stuff when it runs out of device memory.

There's no such thing as "too much space". It applies to RAM. It applies to hard drives. And it applies to media cards. You probably do need a media card. Make sure you move all media (photos, ringtones, music, videos, etc) to the media card. The media card does not increase your device memory. It only gives you a place to store media files so they don't use up your device memory.

Hard to believe you filled up a Bold, but it's possible.

Wow how many apps to you have on there. I have never seen a BB run down that much.

I do not know. But I do have a # of web sites-maybe a dozen-that I always refer to bookmarked. I do have mobile CNN,ESPN,weather,Google map,Viigo,installed among others.Do the bookmarked sites eat memory?

Just wondering,
one newbie to another

Do you have "blackberry" folder in the memory card?
Do you have a hidden folder named "system" inside the "Blackberry" folder?
Do you have file "info.mkf" within "system" folder?

Are you using Roxio to save the pictures or
windows explorer (Mass Storage Mode)?

If i'm not mistaken if you open the folder (Mass Storage) then open Roxio, the card will not show, but I think your problem should be more complicated than that.

Auto save in media card should be done in the settings/options from the application you use, usually the application will let you choose, any other alternative or advise from the mod/masters suggest later on.

oo btw, careful with yahoo.go since it used up a lot of memory, especially when its full. Same with Googlemaps and any other map application.
