    But you just said you can't go to Gallery. Now you are saying you can? I'm confused what you are trying to say.

    I have never used one. My husband does, however. I'm usually pretty good with my storage.

    Copied 382 files, 1 gb data from my Samsung drive .
    Tried to copy them into my gallery photo that came with the phone.
    It made a photo icon in Google.
    So the pictures are no longer in Samsung drive.
    They are in google.

    Now I had my SD card as where my pictures are stored.

    Got to try and figure out what to do now.

    I loved my Treo 650! I still have it but haven't powered it up in years. It was a great little phone back in the day!
    Using a 256GB card for music & picture storage like many here. Amazon is an easy way to backup & just another Prime perk that I use to get my money's worth out of the annual fee.
    I also used the Palm Treo 650, plus the 600 and 700 series! I loved the physical qwerty keyboard! But doing that "hotsynch" action for saving files was unreliable, haha! Before the Treo series, I had various generations of the original Palm Pilot, including the Star Trek tri-corder flip up lid model with the stylus pen. But the dot matrix B&W text was horrible! After the Treo series, I had a couple versions of the Palm Pre phone, I thought the whole "card" view thing was cool. I never did get an iPhone when it first got released and kept using my trusty old Treo 650 even after so many friends and coworkers switched over to the iCrap craze. Finally one day, Verizon released the first ever 4G phone known as the HTC Thunderbolt. I was the first in line at 5am at the Verizon store to get the Thunderbolt 4G phone on debut day. It's been Android phones for me ever since. Aaaah, those were the days, LOL! By the way, the Thunderbolt phone had terrible battery life cuz nobody knew at the time how much battery drain 4G phone signal would cause.

    Those were great times! Exciting phones for the time. Waiting in line for a new phone was always a lot of fun. Party like atmosphere, meeting new like-minded people. The excitement of getting a new "toy." I really enjoyed that.
    I had a Handspring (later Palm) Visor Deluxe with the add-on module, a Handspring Visor Platinum, Then moved on to an HTC Tytn (slideout keyboard/Windows Mobile pocket OS, I didn't start buying iPhones until iPH 3 (have had 6+ and have a [free] XR now to work on jailbreak themes but I don't leave a SIM card in it), but I've owed the Note 2,3,4, 7, 8,9,10+. I'm looking at the Z fold 2 instead of the Note 20 Ultra. I've always wanted a foldable phone. Ever since Sammy showed this at CES 2013:

    It was the Samsung S7 Edge that brought me back to Android for good now. I cannot stand iOS and iPhones. The notch just kills me on phones. hate it. I love tech and enjoy watching every review for so many phones. Love the out of the box customization with Android and I don't need to have a rooted phone.

    Haha, funny video, especially at the end! Chicks dig dudes with cool toys, LOL!

    Remember the old action TV show "24" starring Jack Bauer who was always saving the President and the world from terrorists? Jack always used his Palm Treo phone that had special advanced James Bond features that nobody else had. The fact that Jack Bauer used a Palm Treo smartphone validated my own self worth of using the same, LOL! The funny thing was that Jack always used 2 different phones. His second phone was a cheap flip phone to make simple phone calls to his headquarter comrades for urgent requests, and he would get upset and angrily hang up his cheap flip phone with a smashing pow/bang sound for emphasis. You can't hang up a phone call using a Palm Treo with the same dramatic sound effect since the Treo phone doesn't have any flipping parts, haha!

    Check out this YouTube video of Jack Bauer using a Palm Treo phone (advance to 0.23 second timeline). Although this video clip doesn't show the Treo phone clearly, in many other TV shows, Jack was clearly using a Palm Treo!


    More links showing Jack Bauer using the mighty Palm Treo smartphone to save the world!

    I haven't used an SD card since the S3. Had 3 failures on 2 different cards that needed to be restored by a PC. One was a SanDisk, the other a PNY. Never used them again unless I was forced to.

    Those times are definitely gone for the most part. Now, we pay much MORE for phones that will bring LESS excitement factor, and whatever "new" feeling is there will quickly wear off.

    You're welcome! I spent many hours...far more than I should have...on the TreoCentral forum extolling the virtues of the mighty Palm Treo!

    You're right about the new phones...don't get quite as much of the wow factor as a generation ago when we thought everything was so high tech.

    Great use of your card! I had a 3 Stooges VHS that I would watch for hours as a teen. Love them. Curly and Shemp (?) were my faves. Moe made my toes curl with his bossy self.

    Yeah. All my media files are on the SD card. As has been stated, easy transfer to another device, shortening the migration process (though the Samsung one is ace but I have all the photos since my Note 2 in the gallery).
    Mainly though, an old school habit of separating OS and Data.


    There is also Vid recording at the new, higher resolutions. Got a 128GB Evo MicroSD on 40% off during one of the black/cyber deals from official supplier around the time I got the 10 and had the money so thought it would do me for the next 10 years.

    No use for the SD card in the past few years because of the amount of build in memory.

    Haven't used one since I got note 10+. Am still at 50% usage. How about you folks?
    I take photos at full res and use videos 4K with the family quite a bit on my Note 10 +, My 512GB is about half full.

    If you store your pictures on a SD card.

    It makes it easy to transfer stuff from one device to another.

    True, but if you store pic and video on the SD please make sure to back them up regularly.

    I like putting everything on my SD cards. The portability makes it great. Do any high capacity microSD cards record 4K video? I'm looking to get a 512GB or 1TB microSD when the Note 20 comes out.
