    Just want to find out how to transfer music on my 4G to my 3D. I tried hooking up the 4G as a drive on my computer but the music I have on it is downloaded off different mp3 apps off the market. So my music is spread out in different files and cant seem to find all of them. Is there a different method I can use?

    Seems like you could do a search for mp3 from your PC on that sdcard (when phone is plugged in) and find all of them.

    Is that not so, am I missing something?

    Or use HTC Sync to pull off all the music off your 4G, and Sync will put them in one folder, then use Sync to put all the music on the 3D. If you need a link to Sync, there's one in the FAQ in my signature.

    why not just "clone" your card image form the one on the 4G and paste it to the one on the 3D. If you plan to use those different apps to play the music then this is an easy method.

    How do I go about doing that? I'm not totally computer savy but still can find my way around. Regarding Sync, I hooked up the 4g and opened Sync, but it wasn't showing me any of the music on my card. To tell the truth it wasn't showing anything. Not sure if I was doing something wrong but I do have all my content on the card.

    this will help if you plan to use the same apps to play those files on the 4G to the 3D

    use a computer/desktop.

    if you have two SD card slots (you may need micro to full size SD card adapters) put both cards in.

    open up the root folder that shows both cards

    then copy all the folders from the 4G card that contain the mp3s

    and paste them into the 3D card.

    un-mount the cards form the desktop machine

    now you have cloned the folders off the old card to the new card.

    now you can use the same apps you did on the 4G to play the songs on the 3D.

    clear as mud? :p
