I've been going between getting a 16gb or 32gb card, and am having trouble deciding how much space I really need. I was wondering what peoples experiences are with the 32gb card, and how they fill them (or if they can).I imagine that if I need to ask, then it should be apparent I don't need a 32gb card, but I still want to hear peoples experiences.
You might have seen this around the forums or other places: 32GB MicroSD. Its the 32GB MicroSD that Verizon is selling for $99 with FREE overnight shipping for their phones. You can buy it without having anything with Verizon, though.
I now have mine installed in my Captivate and the thing is great. I have 29GB of Music/Videos/Pictures loaded up on it and playing back ANYTHING on my phone is fast and doesn't stutter. I know I had some questions about this so I just wanted to post that yes, you CAN enjoy 48GB of space on a Captivate without worrying about Class size speed issues, worrying about the card being fake, etc. Well worth the 100 bucks. The money you can save from Wirefly/Amazon/Walmart etc can easily pay for this.
Hey folks HumanMachine here with a little query for those of you who were lucky enough to have picked up a 32GB MicroSD for your phones.I had, and lost mine, in the course of two days. Short story incoming. TLDR Below I was using my phone at work and decided to change my Live Wallpaper, I'd downloaded a few of them and was going through them just to see how they looked in motion. I remember specifically looking at the "Starfield" wallpaper. I then selected the "Battery - Couple the ship's energy source with phone's battery" To see what the option did. I backed out to apply the Wallpaper. And the Droid X locks. Weird I thought, maybe she's just lagged.Turned out a lot worse than that. She was just straight up frozen. Stuck on this unusable frozen starfield. I couldn't quite remember how to reboot the phone. or even if it were possible, Couldn't power her down, so I removed her battery, figured that would be enough to get her back to life.I was met with a message, once the phone loaded up. "SD Card blank or has unsupported filesystem" Not the first time I've seen this issue pop up on the android forums. I immediately popped the MicroSD card into my little USB dongle and attempted to access the MicroSD. Shows up in "My Computer" just fine. but when I tried to access it? "Please insert disc" et cetera et cetera.
I try to format. No dice, Computer won't even find the thing. Try my SD formatter, no dice.Stick the 16 GB card back into the phone, and we're sailing again. And here I am staring sadly at the card.I tried for about an hour more to breathe some life into it. I just couldn't get the computer or phone to read the card. Same error messages.TLDR For those of you who wanted to skip the story SD Card died. pathetically, didn't lose much but still. My question, do we have any idea what the failure rates are on these bad boys? I didn't mistreat or even do much with mine before this issue came up. Hopefully I just had a lemon. Unfortunately, the store I got mine at. Verizon store actually, didn't have any, nor do they know when they will get a shipment of them.I'm bummed. go figure. Time to play the waiting game.
Has anyone gotten any info about the stock headphones that comes with the EVO? I want to know how good is the sound quality and are there any controls on the headset itself? Also, has anyone located a 32GB microSD card for it yet?
i have a new card and after transfering the files (which takes forever) the files are not there. on one occasion i transfered the files then inserted the card into my evo and then the music player says the file is not playable then the files seem to disappear. i am new to microsd cards but not new to pc hardware and software. to me i view the new evo as almost a mini laptop with a phone built in.
the damn phone does everything and is my first and probably last cell phone. about the card though, i formated it with my pc (windows 7) with the multimedia card reader built in. and had no luck with this issue then... i formatted the card with the phone and still no change. it is like the files just disappear
I wanted to load up an A-DATA 16GB Class 6 card with music tonight so I can listen to music at work on the Evo tomorrow at work after i pick up phone in the morning...my questions is, since my PC (Windows 7) didn't need to format the card, will the phone need to do any formatting?
Did anyone pick up a 32gb card from the store yesterday? I heard they would have them in stock but my store did not have any I had them order me a few and overnight so I should get them today.I was just wondering if the reports the day before were true.
I am going to swap to a bigger card this morning when my 32 GB get here from verizon. I took card out and copied entire contents to my PC. Will everything work after I copy back on new card or do I have to do something else.Don't want any surprises. I would think it would be already formatted but if not I will format it FAT32
I'm upgrading from my Droid 1 to the Droid X tomorrow and would like to start my use of the DX with it's new 32gb card in place of my old 16gb card from my Droid 1 but need to know if there's anything required to copy from my droid 1 16gb card to my new DX 32 gb card that would be required or helpful in the DX use.I will obviously transfer music/vids/pics but are there any essential files, apps, etc. that are needed.Or is it a good idea to use my paid MyBackupPro to copy the old Droid 1 apps/data for use in the DX larger memory card or is this not copatible to perform between the 2 devices?
I just bought a SanDisk 32gb microSDHC card to replace the 16gb which came with my Droid-X. I have explored it some using the Astro free file browser found in the Android Market. It seems that the filesystem is some form of Linux/Unix (EXT/EXT2/EXT3).
How can I copy everything from the existing 16gb card to the new 32gb card using a Windows pc?
It's one thing to read/write from/to the card from a Windows PC while the card is still in the Droid. It's another thing to read/write from/to it while the card is mounted in a reader on the Windows PC. I am concerned about screwing up file permissions, privileges, the structure and getting all hidden files.
I got a Droid 2 recently and decided to put the 16GB card from my O.G. Droid but before so I wiped everything from it, minus my pictures and videos. My Droid 1 is rooted and I wanted to go back to it but now when I try to flash a rom it doesn't work and it looks like a bunch of stuff is missing from the SD card or whatever it needs for clockwork to do its magic. So the question is what do I need to do to get back to where I can flash roms willy nilly like before? Do I need to go to stock then re-root or is there a more simple way?
I have had my Droid for a week now and I noticed in the settings menu that I haven't used my MicroSD card at all to save any files or apps. How can I fix this? I thought all of the Apps were saved to the microsd card to start with? I have 6 GB's life on my phone and still have 14.7 GBs when I connect it to my computer.
I got my replacement Droid today, and I noticed it had a different Micro SD card in it.My original had a SanDisk Class 2 in it. The new one has no name, but it looks similar to a Dane maybe? The new phone is a 43/09.Anyone else who have had theirs exchanged come across this yet? Or, maybe it's always been this way with a couple different vendors.
Unless I can get a conformation that it's in the 2-3 day stage and not the waiting stage I'm just canceling. I've been in the telecom business too long to see a disaster in the making. It's going to take more time for the phones to port numbers and ship than that window would allow.
It seems none of the accessories mentioned by Verizon are there when going through the preorder steps just the norm? Anyone see any of the different style cases? I don't. Kind of don't want to place my order without the accessories.
I preordered at BB. I also opened a new Sprint account.So can I still apply student discount from studentrate.com for 15% off monthly charge? If I can do that, where should I type the code?I am new to sprint, I searched all over my account last night and couldn't find a place to put my coupon code in.If not,I might end up returning the device and ordering through internet.
Been with VZW for several years and can't remember paying an activation fee ever.let alone for an upgrade that's purchased online that I activate myself. Does anyone know if we'll actually be paying the $35 activation fee for current customers (NE2 eligible) w/2 year contract?
I have been seeing posts on memory. My internal memory is about 27MB internal, What do most others have? Also Looks like SD total space is 7.4 GB, and I have 6.99 GB avail.What do most people put onto the SD card? I am new at this and trying to figure how to keep my phone running the best it can.
UP front just let me say I "hope" the Android stomps Apple. That said, I think it will have a rough time of doing so. Why? Well, for one the primary purveyor of Android does not derive a primary source of income from their efforts. Second, the companies providing Androids have no real reason nor ability to continually refine Android proper. And that last point really bugs me. The phone manufactures are not software developers and that leads to two issues, 1) they don't understand what it takes to develop software and 2) they are motivated to not do so. By point number 2 I mean they make money pumping out new phones. If they provide new things in currently deployed phones they are just cutting themselves out of revenue. What is the solution? Well for one how about they start charging for OS upgrades just like MS and Apple do? Would the market bear this?
So I just got my class 6 8gb memory card and I want to make the switch. What's the best way to go about this? Should I just copy all contents of the stock memory card into a folder and then copy and past all of that onto the new card and then make the switch? Or is there a better way? I don't want to screw anything up and I don't want to lose anything (pics, music, settings, etc.)
