I have been using my Mobile to listen to Music and Audio books rather than
carry around both my Mobile and iPod. The other advantage being, I have a
stereo bluetooth headset for my Mobile.

On the media card 8GB MicroSD, There are folders created by my BlackBerry. I
have created couple of folders on them too, within the directories it has

Under Documents, I have created Audiobooks and eBooks. For some reason, if I
copy my MP3s to "Music" folder created by the BB OS, BB hangs and becomes
very slow and I have remove the SD card to make it respond. Whereas if I
copy those same MP3 files to "Audiobook" directory, it works fine and plays
fine too.

Is this because there are bad block or whatever is holding the information?
Is it time to buy another card?
