Switching SD Cards on an Android Phone


I decided to substitute the default 4GB micro SD card provided with my HTC Desire with a 16GB one. Here is a summary of how I did it. It’s extremely simple actually 🙂 I haven’t tried on any other phone but I take for granted that I shall work with other Android phones.

  1. Copy the contents of the current card to your hard drive.
  2. Copy the contents from the hard drive to the new card.
  3. Replace the current card with the new one.

As the contents of the card was the same after the substitution, I was surprised to find that WinAmp could not find back the covers of the albums in my music library. Except that, the substitution went without a hitch.

To copy the contents of the current card to the hard drive, I use a card reader. I could have plugged in the phone and copy directly from it as well.
