    Default When moving to a larger SD card, what steps need to be done?

    I've been using my Razr since Thanksgiving and I'm loving it! It even has me contemplating selling my iPod Touch (topic for another thread ). Since I've been using it for a while and have apps, e-mail, music, and other data, what steps would be required for swapping to a larger SD card?

    Can I just stick the SD card that's currently in the phone into a card reader and then copy the data to the larger card and then insert the larger card?

    Thank you

    Thank you for the info.

    Yeah, I was surprised that it took so long for a reply. The Razr ROCKS. It is my first smartphone and I'm really enjoying using it.

    I've done the transfer and it's nothing more than copying the data from one card to the next.
    I'm thinking about a 64GB card.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't the Droid Razr only support up to 32 gb size micro SD cards?

    To the OP: One thing i definitely recommend is that you get a class 4 or above micro SD card, whatever size you choose. The one that comes stock on the RAZR is only a class 2. I know this for a fact because my stock micro SD card is currently in my Mom's Nook Tablet. When transferring all her music to the card, the speed would top out at 2 megabits per second. I got a class 4, 32 gb card in my RAZR now and transferring data is much better than the stock card.

    64GB micro SDXC cards do work on the Razr and have been reported to work on multiple Android phones. It requires a reformat from exFAT (default on the SDXC) to FAT32 file system. They are however, pricey atm.

    Does it have the little "6" inside the letter "c" mark on the card? My stock card had no number mark on it, indicating it a class 2 card.

    I preordered my RAZR. I wonder if the preordered batch came with class 2 cards or if they temporarily ran out of the usual Micro SD cards and just said "screw it, put something in there so we can get this thing shipped".

    I sure hope the SD card Moto is using in the Razr is better than the ones they used on the X and X2. A very high failure rate on those cards (just do a google search). Mine went out in about six months. Lucky I had a recent SD card back up on my laptop.

    And even though I have read Moto would replace it within phone warranty period; I replaced it with a Sandisk.
    C3H6N6O6 + (CH2)8(COOC8H17)2 + C4H8 + C5H8 = BOOM

    How do I format to FAT32? New to Androids... said good bye to Apple and their overpriced wares; now want to maximize what my XT912 RAZR can do for me.
