Motorola Droid X :: Swapping 16 GB SD Card To 32GB
Aug 3, 2010
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
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'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 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?
I plugged in my HTC Inspire 4G, and tried to copy everything on the card to a temporary folder, which I will then copy back to my new SD card. But the weird thing is Windows says the total size of all files and folders I copied is 1.85GB, but when I right click->Properties on the Removable Disc, it says the card has 1.94GB used. So there's about 90MB of something that's on the card but Windows can't see or copy. I'm concerned there's something hidden there that will cause problems if my phone can't find it on the new card. Any way I can make sure everything is copied over?
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?
How to root my chinese tab C3100 android 4.03 Baseband version Base_w12.20.p12 MTK6577 Kernel Version 22.214.171.124 hardware version 1.1.0
I need to root it but when i go to boot menu i don't found anything except test options and i don't have a driver for it so i can't root it using any app. I always read about that trying to root it because it's internal memory 256. I want to swap it with external but I hear that i need root.
I got a Motorola Droid from Verizon in the spring. It came with a Sandisk 16gb card, but I have over 20 gb of music, so for the time being I've only kept some of my music on there. I always transferred music through the USB connection, using Windows Explorer (I have Windows 7). I have all the files tagged with title/artist/album etc. but for easy organization I have them sorted into folders - a folder for each artist, and a subfolder for each album. Right now my phone is running Froyo (Android 2.2).
My husband recently bought me a Samsung 32 gb micro SDHC card that he got on eBay. So of course as soon as it was in the phone, I wanted to transfer my music. I connected it to the computer via USB, and copied all my music folders onto it. Explorer showed that it would take a few hours for the transfer, so I left it plugged in overnight.....................
I have recieved from China, via ebay, a 32gb sd card. It is actually 31.7gb according to my laptop. when i put it in my desire, it will not see it, or just tells me that the sd card needs formatting, then won't format it. Is this because the card is too slow,or is it an OS problem,that will be resolved when Froyo is released?
I'm anxiously waiting for the Hero to come to the US so I can dump my iPhone 3GS...my question is about the SD card...is it possible to use a 32gb hcsd card in the phone...my iTunes has about 15gbs in it and I'd really love to fit everything on the phone...I've read conflicting reports that the HTC hero only supports up to 16gb and elsewhere that it supports up to 32gb...anybody have one and know for sure?
I have installed my new 32gb card into my desire and transferred my music collection (about 20gb) across via my pc but when I try to play them not all are available. They appear to be on the card as when I check the contents of the card on the pc in explorer they are all there and if I check the folders using the phone again they are showing on the card.
But when I go to select a song to play from the stock player there are only 100 songs to choose from which is very strange as there should be over 2000 easily. Interestingly when I switched the phone off and back on again I had about 700 to choose from which is still not right. Do I need to do anything with the vcard before installing (for example I didn't format it)? For info I needed to set up a new folder called MP3 on the new card when I installed it and dragged them into this folder so presume that was correct?
I just picked up a 16GB Micro-SD card for <$60 at Office Depot on sale... beating the nearest online price by $7.00 (according to the Shopper App). The question is, what am I going to fill all that memory goodness with?
Music? Photos? Videos? What else?
What are YOU planning on filling your 16 or 32 Micro-SD card with?
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.
I finally got around transferring my 32Gig card out of my Evo and into the Epic. After I put it in I decided to clean it and reformat it in the Epic. Epic starts the format then comes up with a message "card damaged cant format". I put the same card in the Evo and it formatted just fine and then worked in the Epic. Then I tried to format it again in the Epic and again I get the card damaged pop up. Again it reformatted just fine in the Evo. Any ideas anyone else get this message? Just to add I tried to format a smaller card in the Epic and it was able to format that fine. Once the 32gig card is formatted in the Evo it will work fine in the Epic.
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 bought a 32gb off ebay. it was shipped from china, i got it today and put it in my phone. well come to find out it dosnt work. so i went back onto ebay to get another one, well i keep seeing a bunch that look like scams (post that are excatly the same just diff prices) so my question is where can i get one at a discounted price?
Doubletwist on my mac synced my itunes music library to the internal storage, not my new 32GB micro sd card. Try as I might I can't seem to find any setting to select this. Both internal and 32GB were mounted in Finder. Should I have unmounted the internal storage? Or is something else appropriate? What about copying the Music folder from the internal to the 32GB?
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
"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.
From what I was told, the Inc supports 32gb microsd card. So I ordered a Sandisk one...class 4. I got it and tested it out. It seems like it can transfer/read small files....but anything big it wouldn't read properly. It's funny cuz a movie file would transfer and play...but if I delete it and transfer the same exact file over, it wouldn't play. Or if I transfer music, some files play and some wouldnt. And some even would merge into one file. Like one song would play and then all sudden another song would POP up like what a DJ does when they mix songs together.
I know I might have a defected one but this is a legit Sandisk card. So what else could be the problem? Should I transfer the file one or slower so the card can read it....is there a way or procedure to using a 32gb MicroSd card? Lol. I mean I have a 16gb right now and it reads and transfers fine. With the 16gb I can literally drag a folder of 10 movies and it would be fine.
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.
