    Hello all,

    Sorry for always asking so many questions here in the forums just want to make sure I don't screw up my phone.

    I recently bought a new 8gig series 6 SD card and want to change it out with the card the phone came with but i have a few questions.

    1st backing up my current SD card:
    I hook up my phone via USB to my pc. Then open up the folder that says camera and copy and past those pic's over to my pc. Then I noticed there was another folder called downloaded which i opened up to find even more pictures so i copy and past those over to my pc (into the same folder that I copyed the camera pic's into).

    Now as best as I can tell I have backed up all my pictures to my pc (in one single folder). My phone had placed some picuters in the camera folder, and then in the downloaded folder. On my pc i put them all in one folder. Now when I go to move the pictures from my pc back to my phone with the new SD card can I just put them all under camera or do i have to remember which ones were under camera and which ones were under downloaded??

    Also is there anything else other than picuters that I should be backing up to my pc?? (don't have any music on my phone) Like apps, settings ect...anything else other than picuters??

    Once I have backed up everything I can to my pc do I then go into the settings and unmount the SD card, then power off the phone, take the back off and pull the old card out put the new card in power on the phone? Then do I have to go back into settings once the new card is in and the phone turned back on and change anything in the settings (like mounting the card)?

    Once all this is done is there any way to actually organize my pictures on my phone?? Currently I have one folder thta says All pictures, one that says caera pictures, one that says contact pictures, two that says downloaded.

    thanks again for any help

    You got it buddy, you can't hurt anything really anyways. Do what you wrote and after you install the new one you don't have to do anything in settings. You can make your own folders within the Camera folder and they should come up like that in the Gallery. :)

    I did mine a little different. I just drug the root directory of the sd card over to the pc, which copied everything exactly as it was on the sd card. then I placed the new card in the phone & copied everything from the pc back to the phone. All directories, files and everything else was just as it was on the old card. The phone don't know any difference.
