thank u so much for posting that! i jus got my 8gb memory card and like some i added my pics and songs and jus pulled it out and of course i got “THE MESSAGE” and i could not figure out how in the world i could fix it! so…i googled it and i finally found an answer that worked! thanks again!July 29, 2009 at 11:01 PM #173701
This has happened to me a few times on my BlackBerry and I am glad RIM has finally addressed the issue with a recent knowledge base article. Ever gotten this error after unplugging your BlackBerry from your computer?
A Media Card has been inserted that contains errors. To correct the errors please use a disk error-checking utility on a computer.
My first reaction when I got this error was “CRAP what about all my pictures!” Then I realized it is a simple as plugging your BlackBerry into your PC and running CheckDisk to fix the errors. Some of you may not have realized that so I thought I would share.
- Plug your BlackBerry into a Windows computer and turn on mass storage mode if it is not already turned on
- Open My Computer.
- Right-click the appropriate Removable Disk.
- Click Tools, and then click Check Now.
- Select Automatically fix file system errors, and then click Start.
Things should work just fine after that! At least it worked the last two times I got this error. Not sure if there is a way to do this on a Mac but let me know! I personally think it sucks that RIM cannot just include the disk checking utility on your BlackBerry since your only option from the device is to format it completely and lose your data…August 7, 2009 at 11:17 AM #179310
OMG!! YOU ARE AMAZING! IT WORKED! THANK YOU SOO MUCH!August 19, 2009 at 5:17 PM #179311
When I click on “Tools” I don’t have the option of “Automatically fix file system errors” etc! (August 25, 2009 at 3:14 PM #179312

thanks for the “critical” advice. I did exactly as you said with no problems. thanks again.August 29, 2009 at 3:29 AM #179314
Ronen, Thank you so much for this tip. It seemed to work great. I can’t find my lost music or pictures (some of which are not replaceable) but at least it corrected that media card.
Not sure what caused it but what a pain it is having this happen.
Thanks again!August 29, 2009 at 3:31 AM #179315
I rebooted my phone and my pictures and music are all back.
Thank you SOOO much!September 11, 2009 at 3:28 AM #179316
stephanie, right click on the removable disk, click properties then you got the tools where the check disk option is availableSeptember 13, 2009 at 4:50 PM #179317
