    So I have the 2 GB SD card from when I first got the phone but that just isn't cutting it anymore. I know a lot of apps save data to the SD card and I was wondering if there is any easy way to transfer SD cards and the data that was previously on the first one.

    Thanks

    All I did was copy from one card to another using the card reader in my laptop and the adapter that came with the card.

    I had an 8 GB card in my G1 with lots of photos and music. Wondered what would happen if I used it in my Dinc. Powered off Dinc, inserted 8gb SD, powered it on. At first the Dinc wasn't happy and gave an error that SD card was missing. Then everything started working, and all of my photos and songs appeared. It does appear the card was partitioned and now shows in my PC as two drives.

    In the past like Wayrad, I just copied the data from one SD card to my PC and then onto the new SD card. I love how simple Android makes moving data. None of that iTunes craziness! :cool:
