I hope that I’m not jumping the gun when I say this, but I think my 1GB Express (which I’ve happily owned for about 11 months) may be heading out to pasture. Here’s the situation:
After a period of lying dormant for about 3 weeks, I decided to put new files on the Express, both on the microSD card (a SanDisk 4GB) and also in the internal memory. After syncing everything in Windows Media player, I looked in the System Info and it showed that space was used on the expansion card and also in the internal memory. However, only the files in the internal memory were recognized, not the card. Thinking that this might be a format problem, I did a clean format of both the internal memory and the expansion card on the player… and I also did a format of the microSD card in my laptop (in FAT32). Unfortunately, I still had the same problem with the expansion card-- internal memory is fine, data is on the expansion card, but the Express won’t read the card.
I thought that I might have a problem with the card itself. But-- this 4 GB microSD card was used first in a BlackBerry Curve, and then in my 8GB fuze without any ill effects (the Fuze now has an 8GB expansion card and it works beautifully).
My questions for everyone are the following: Can the microSD expansion slot go bad? Is my Express relegated now to just 1GB?
Any help or insight would be welcome. Many thanks in advance…
