My phone came with a 2GB micro SD card and I'm thinking of upgrading it to either 16 or 32 because I want to listen to music on it.

I'm wondering what is the best method of transporting all the data and information on my 2GB or the new one without the risk of losing whatever settings or data I might have on the SD card? Should I just do a straight copy and paste between the two cards, will that work?

Any thoughts?

Well, I would format the new card first on the phone and then do a copy and paste of the folders where you have stuff saved.

Quick Format FAT32 on your PC. If it can't do it, it will **** out an error.
But like BlackD said, it's always better to let the phone itself format the card.

I didn't even format my card when I got it. I just plugged it into an adaptor but it in my computer and then transfered files off of the Hero on to it. When it was done I ejected and put in my phone. No problems.

There should be no problem to copy all the stuff from the original card and pasted to the new one as it will have all the necessary stuff. I just mention the formatting as is the safest way to make sure that it has all the correct folders and information in it. :eek:

Great tip !

Just got a Hero and have been experimenting with it. Like charlo I wanted more space for music.
Initial web searches indicated using Nandroid which seemed overly complex.
The method discussed here worked with no problems whatsoever. Changed from the supplied 2Gb to a 16Gb.
Nice one ! :)

I'm not even sure 32gb micro-sd cards available for the public to purchase yet but last i heard they were projected to be multiple hundreds of dollars. Even a 32gb SD card (non-micro) will run you anywhere from $100-$400 depending on what brand and class.

Edit : Just found this link which confirms not only was the 32gb micro-sd card just created, it's not even into production yet.

Does the Android OS and hardware support the 32 GB cards? I've heard that is something that needs to be supported. I recommend having a reader of some sort on the PC to take care of this as well. It can come in very handy if you are having troubles with adb for some reason.
