Motorola Droid X :: Copy 16gb MicroSDHC To 32gb Using Windows PC
Jul 22, 2010
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'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?
"The microSD card is based on TransFlash, which is the world's smallest flash memory card form factor and were recently adopted by the SD Card Association (SDA) and renamed "microSD." The new microSD card is fully compatible with TransFlash card slots and is designed as a small, flash memory storage card for mobile phones and devices. It supports existing TransFlash product lines and will transition its handset customers and the retail channel to the renamed microSD card.
This is happening on HTC Desire. perfectly OK 32GB disk ( been running on my old smatphone for 15 months) and put in Desire and it showed only 16GB. Reformatted disk and still only 16GB. according to HTC docs, the Desire supports 32GB
I have the HTC EVO 4G with a 16GB memory card inserted. I am almost out of space with my audio books etc so I was thinking of upgrading to a 32GB memory card. What is the best way to use the 32GB card with all the content currently on the 16GB card. Would using my CPU to hold the 16GB's data then copying to the 32GB card work?
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
By the manual, eris only support up to 16gb of sd card. Does anyone try to use 32gb? - I fount the answer.... It was a really dumb question and I found similar post.... Actually, I want to delete this post but I don't know how to do.
does anyone have a copy of the Talk.apk. everytime i flash a new rom and do a titanium restore it makes talk mess up(tap the icon and it instantly closes) which in turn messes with all of the other google apps like market and gmail so i need to see if pushing another copy into /system/app will solve the problem.
I just realized I can't long press on a news article / web page and choose specific words to copy them. I'm using Dolphin browser. Is there a plugin I need? As much as I love my DX this is a disappointment.
So there was a couple times i wanted to copy a persons phone number from my contacts so i could text message it to someone but, i cant do it. i guess i can send a name card but i'd rather be able to copy the contacts phone number. I try long pressing the number, but no luck. Any tips on how to do this?
I'm using media player now, since it launched right away.
If there a better/faster method (drag n drop or such) to move files from/to the droid?
Also is there a file structure in place where you *must* put specific file types? (I have the pdf manual, and want to copy it as well to the DX... I'm not sure where it goes though, or how to move the file over.)
Is there a faq here on the best methods and file folder locations specific to the DX?
When I connect my DX to a computer with the USB cable, I usually use "PC Mode" or "Windows Media Sync" instead of "USB Mass Storage". Because (a) then I can still access the SD card on the phone, and (b) I don't need to remember to unmount the SD card from the PC before disconnecting the cable.
The strange thing is that on my work computer, I can copy files from the phone to the computer no problem. But on my home computer, when I try to copy a file, nothing happens. (I have Windows XP on both computers). I see the SD card directory tree in Explorer on the PC. I drag a file from one of the SC card folders into a folder on my PC. But then nothing happens.
If I use "USB Mass Storage", then it works well okay.
I m little confuse. i have a wallpaper folder on the sd card with files to use as wallpaper. i would resize using the yellow crop & save. why does it save another copy? why does it not just use the original file? so now the wallpaper folder has two copies of the same file.
I forgot my password to this very site, so I reset it from my droid. A couple of seconds later I receive an email with my temporary password, I try to copy it to paste it into the login window in the browser and I find myself at a loss on how to copy text from an email. I google around and find this: How do you copy/paste text from the Gmail app? - Android Community Forums. It says it is not possible? (The provided workaround does not work). This is a major bummer, I've been doing this on my old BlackBerry for years.
Does anyone know how to make a copy of my clockworkmod bootstrap app into an .apk that I can put on my sdcard? When I keep installing new themes, and flashing back to .sbf, the most annoying part is signing back in to my phone to have to download the bootstrap then wipe my phone again. I am by NO MEANS trying to cheat the developer out of profits he makes selling this app, just trying to more "effectively" use the copy I paid for.
