Old memory card vs new memory card
 
Got my BB last week. I didn't realise it came with a 2GB memory card, and thought it just had internal memory, so I ordered a new 8GB memory card. However, whilst waiting for it to arrive, I have taken some photos/vids etc that I don't want to lose (thinking they were saved into an internal memory).

Going to insert the new memory card, I discovered the 2GB memory already there.
Although 2GB of memory would be enough for now, I think in a year or so's time, this might fill up. Although I don't plan on using the BB for playing music, as I have a ipod, I usually end up with lots of photos, videos (and now probably apps).

Will I lose valuable apps, photo's or videos if I insert new memory card? If so, is there a quick way to transfer them to the new memory card or phones internal memory? I just don't want to lose them. I know I could transfer files from phone to laptop, then back again once new card in, but is there a quicker way?

Thanks in advance from a new BB user! :smile:

Apps don't store to the memory card, so thats irrelevant.

No, there isnt a quicker way, except the same thing using a card reader.

Get a usb to micro SD card reader
put old card into reader and connect to PC
put new card into 9700 and format it
Connect 9700 to PC and enable mass storage mode on 9700
Use windows explorer to move or copy files from reader to 9700.

2 gig usually transfers fairly quick unless you have many small files.

Thanks for the quick replies, folks.
I don't have a usb to card reader, knotty. There aren't a lot of files to transfer to new memory card, so it seems like I'll just have to transfer to laptop. I'll do it now, so they'll be least few as possible. x
