    Hi, Im hoping that someone can help me out.
    I have a htc wildfire and yesterday changed the micro card from a 2g to an 8g one.
    I then moved over the apps that could be moved. Now the problem is that the photos and videos in the 'gallery' wont show, yet if I put in the old micro card they appear!
    I have looked at the apps I moved and I cant figure it out as I havent moved any to do with photos. Any help would be most appreciated

    Sounds to me like the photos are stored on the old SD card. You did copy them over to the new card, didn't you?

    Well, thats the problem! Looking at the sd card under the Settings, Applications, Manage applications, there is nothing left on the card.
    If I go into the gallery app, I havent got a choice of moving it, as it doesnt give me a choice of saving to phone or sd card, yet all my photos say 'saved to sd card'.

    How did you save it all? You needed to move all your photos and MP3's to a PC then back to the new card. Or to a Dropbox folder in the cloud. Gallry app is just an app (like a music player is just a player), all the data is in other folders not really relating to the apps. Use an explorer to search for a folder called "Pictures" or "Music".

    If you can read the old card on your computer, copy those files to the computer, then switch to the new card and copy the files to that.
