    i have htc desire and an 4 gb sd card in it. i would like to change to 8 gb card, but i have a question.
    when i connect my phone with an usb to my computer, i select something like "disk drive" and then it opens a window on my computer, actually, like a normal disk drive (like C:, D:...)
    what i want to know is, if i would like to move everything from an 4gb sd card to 8 gb card, which files do i have to copy? do i copy all of them or what? because some files have a dot at the beginning of a name (for example ".quickoffice")...do i have to copy even those "dotted" files, or are these files on my phone and not on my sd card?:thinking:

    . files are hidden files. If you want everything to work, copy them. Copy everything.

    I too am going to get a new Micro SD Card, since my 4 Gb that came with the phone is about full. What is the maximum card the Desire can take ?

    Mymemory have a good deal on a 16Gb Class 4 card at the moment here LINKY, would this be suitable. I'm off on holidays in a couple of weeks and was thinking of putting some AVI Movies on the card to watch.

    I ordered it last week when it said it was on pre-order & the release date was yesterday (Monday).

    I'm not convinced it's gonna turn up TBH cos it seems to be really cheap but thought I'd give it a go :D

    That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

    Agreed, that is total nonsense. I have a 20GB Music folder on my sd card, no problems.
