A new SD-card
I was just wondering what is the professional way to change my SD-card? I don't have any of my music etc. saved on the current card because I knew I'd change my card soon.
Can I just take the old card away and put a new one in? SD-card doesn't have any important system files, does it?

Re: A new SD-card
The filesystem type on the SDCard depends on where it was originally formatted - if it was formatted in a Samsung Galaxy S3, then the filesystem type is actually ext3, not FAT (or FAT32).
Anyway, there are no system files stored on the SDCard but you may have camera pictures or other content that you've downloaded on the old SDCard, so be sure to check the contents before you erase/format it.
Generally your best bet is to format the new SDCard in the phone prior to use (they usually come formatted from the factory) - there seem to be mixed reports on this forum that suggest people are having problems with large numbers of files, or specific file types (music in particular) with the default ext3 filesystem, so if you do run into problems you may have to reformat the SDCard as FAT32. Search the forum for tools that will allow that.
