I would try formatting the card from your Blackberry.

From the Options menu, go to Media Card, press the Blackberry button (to the right of the green phone button) and select "Format Card".

Should clear up the problem.

If you have a MicroSD to SD Card adapter and a card reader on your pc; put the card into the computer and in My Computer right click on the card (it'll appear as a drive), go to Properties and then Disk Checking. Make sure both boxes are checked on the resulting dialog box.
This method will keep your files unlike a format.
