// Import Platform Service Interface
import com.nokia.lib.Service;
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "Checking Memory card existence";
// Create new Service object which has SystemInfo Service data
var sysInfo = new Service("Service.SysInfo", "ISysInfo");
// Define input parameters
var inParams = {Entity:"Memory", Key:"MemoryCard"};
// Retrieve information about a system attribute with a synchronous call
// Define result value
var outParams = sysInfo.GetInfo(inParams);
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
var systemData = outParams.ReturnValue;
var memoryCard = systemData.Status;
if(memoryCard == 1) {
text_txt.text = "Memory Card: Enabled";
} else {
text_txt.text = "Memory Card: Disabled";
} else {
var errorId = outParam.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text = "Error: "+errorId;
}text_txt.text = "Error: "+errorId;


Status of the memory card is displayed (disabled/enabled).

Example application
