You MUST, properly, according to installation directions, install software for the Blackberry SmartPhone in Windows in order for Windows to recognize it properly.

Have you done that ?

If you have, were you able to read data on the same SD card in Windows when it was in the Blackberry before you formatted it on the Blackberry ?

Did you format the card in Windows before you formatted it on the Blackberry ?

The USB connection of the Blackberry SmartPhone to the computer must be plugged into a USB port it can work with properly.
If you don't have it plugged into a port that's built into the mboard, it may not be recognized properly.
There are lots of devices that DO NOT work properly when plugged into a USB port in an external USB hub that is plugged into one USB port built into the mboard.
