    What do mean? All you have to do is copy all to your new card. Nothing will get messed up.

    My suggestion, put the new card in your desktop/laptop. Turn on the USB storage on your phone. Highlight everything and drag copy it to the new card.

    I would delete the old data on the old SD till you're sure everything is in place. But it's as easy as that.

    The Apps will still look for the Data files on the SD as long as you copy it identical as the old card.

    Did you format your new SD card? Trying formating your new SD card using your phone then transfer the file to it.

    I actually bought a new SD card yesterday and connected my old to my computer and the new one thru my Nexus and transfer it that way.

    I can't believe all you guy's posts beat me, there was none there when I started. I need a typing class.


    Back up the old card to your computer by mounting phone thru usb. Have usb debugging selected on phone. Settings/Applications/Development. Unmount phone.

    Install new sd card, mount phone to computer with usb and thru the computer it should be seen as a drive and you can right click on it and format fat32.

    Then copy the the files you backed up to the computer onto the new sd card.

    When you put the new card in you could go to Settings/SD Card & Phone Storage and see if Format SD Card is enabled. Never have done it that way though. It may be available thru recovery also, don't remember. I prefer my method.

    Make sure you unmount correctly thru the taskbar at bottom of computer. There are two items that need clicked on to get the ok to umount.

    I always bu my sd card also, just like I do my roms.

    There is also a ms-usb-toggle in recovery that mounts and unmounts also. Used it once.


    Any Q's ask.

    If you are not rooted get MyBackUpPro from Market. If rooted, Titanium Backup and Nandroid (full image bu).
