| | 8830 mass storage issue
Please Login to Remove!
I've just noticed a bothersome issue with my 8830 when trying to transfer larger files (ie: movies) to my device's 2 gig micro SD card via USB..
The card is a Kingston 2gig Micro SD card.. I have tested the card using an sd adapter+card reader on 2 seperate computers and it works correctly..
I've also tried transfering the files with 2 diffrent computers and usb cables..
here's what happens.. I've turned on mass storage mode on the BB and connect it to my computer via usb.. The computer recognizes the BB and a few seconds later I have a new icon in "My Computer" that's titled "Blackberry" .. up to this point everything is fine.. I can browse the SD card and drop some smaller files into the directories.. however when I attempt to transfer a much larger file, the transfer stops halfway, in "My Computer" it nolonger says "Blackberry" but instead it says "removable media" ... Part of the way through the windows autorun feather kicks in and trys to scan and display the contents of the card .. needless to say I can not drag and drop files with any reliability.. I have also attempted to use the desktop manager - media manager to transfer my movies insted of just dragging and dropping.. but the same thing happens where halfway through the transfer everything just dies ...
I'm not entirely sure what item I should blame for this issue.. the Micro SD card I'm using or the BB itself? I've reseated the card several times and it still occures.. I have flashed the BB with the latest verizon firmware tto see if that would help, but it did not...
Any suggestions? or shoudl I return my BB to the place I purchased it and see if I can get it replaced?
