Best way to switch MicroSD Cards

New postby D02 on Fri Nov 13, 2009 11:32 am

I currently have a 6gb microsd card and would like to upgrade to the 16gb. Whats the best way to go about doing this while also preserving the settings of all my current podcast?

Thanks

Any suggestions? I found the wiki site for podtraper and tried backing up with Blackberry messanger 5.0, but didnt see an option for it as mentioned in the instructions.

Just copy everything from your old card to your new card. There are a couple of ways to do this.

If you have a card reader in your computer, do the following:
1) Exit out of Podtrapper ("Exit" from the menu, not "Close")
2) Shut down your BB
3) Remove your current media card and put it in your computer
4) Copy everything to a folder on your computer
5) Remove your current media card from your computer
6) Put in your new media card
7) Copy the contents of your old media card from your computer to the new media card
8) Remove your new media card from your computer and put it in your BB
9) Turn on the BB
10) Open up Podtrapper, and everything should work fine. If you are prompted for your PT storage directory, browse to it. If things don't look right, you can go into Settings->Storage Settings->Menu->Change Storage Folder and browse to your PT storage directory.

----------------------------------

If not, do the following:
1) If you have PT to automatically start when your BB turns on, turn off that setting
2) Exit out of Podtrapper ("Exit" from the menu, not "Close")
3) Set your BB settings for "Mass Storage Mode" to "Enable" or "Prompt" (I prefer "Prompt")
4) Connect your BB to your computer using USB
5) If prompted on your BB, enable mass storage mode. The MicroSD card on your BB should now show up as a drive on your computer
6) Copy the entire contents of your SD card to folder on your computer.
7) Use "Safely Remove Hardware" from Windows to disconnect your BB
8) Disconnect your BB
9) Put the 16GB card in your BB
10) Reconnect your BB via USB, enabling mass storage mode
11) Copy the contents of your old card from your computer to your desktop
12) "Safely Remove Hardware" and disconnect
13) Open up Podtrapper, and everything should work fine. If you are prompted for your PT storage directory, browse to it. If things don't look right, you can go into Settings->Storage Settings->Menu->Change Storage Folder and browse to your PT storage directory.

I ended up using a media card to transfer the contents into a folder on my PC. Just like you discribed. Thanks
