    Hi, I recently got an S3 and when I tried to move my 32GB San Disk SD card from my S2 to my S3 it isn't loading any of the apps or pics that I had stored to it. When I check the S3's storage, the SD card is displaying 13GB available storage out of 30, so the apps and photos etc. are obviously still on there, but yet they won't load to my phone.

    Can anybody tell me what I can do to load the apps, photos etc. from the SD card to my new phone?

    Your images should still show up but the apps would need to be reinstalled

    If I have to reinstall the apps I will but none of my pictures are showing up in my gallery. The SD card is showing as being mounted but isn't displaying anything.

    get a good file explorer like es file explorer and make sure the pics are in the right folder. Thats it. your s3 is on a different version of android and the file path is different. should be in storage/ext sdcard/dcim. If you have differnt file path to pics, just move them. Your apps of course have to be re installed. The apps are not on sdcard, only the data is. The apps are in Data/apps.
