    I have upgraded to a 16g micro card. Is there anything special I have to do when I swap it out with old card. Maybe 2 examples would be good. 1 with transfering files. 2 without transfering files. Just got the Evo a week ago, so I only have a few pics...Thanks

    All I did when I upgraded to my 32gb card was copy the entire 8gb card contents to my laptop and then put in the new card and then re copied everything from my laptop to the new 32gb card (after I installed it in my EVO and connected my EVO to my laptop). Everything works great.

    I did, Once I put it in the phone I had the phone reformat it. I find if you format it by the device thats going to use it sometimes it works better.

    Yup what FunDroid said. Do the format as soon as you install the card and then copy everything over.

    I got my 32gb micro SDHC card from Verizon (funny enough) online a few weeks ago. They were running a special on them for 100.00 after 50.00 off however for a few hours online the site had them for 50.00 (best guess is someone screwed up bigtime) and a bunch of us on here snatched up quite a few of them.
