You can either move your data to your phones internal storage and then move it back on the new SD card or re-download the data. Moving data deftly from one card to another unfortunately won't work.

Windows Phone 8 currently has no app to move all of your music, photos and video from the internal storage to SD memory card - you must do this manually. Move the files to your PC Connect your Windows Phone 8 device to your PC with a USB cable. Open Windows Explorer, your device should show up (eg. Nokia Lumia 820). When you browse the device you'll see ...

After some research, it seems that the apps, on the SD card,are not detected by the phone unless it is rebooted. I don't know whether this is a glitch or all Windows 8 phones work this way. All I did was the following: Insert SD card on Phone Format the SD card from Phone (optional) Connect to PC Paste all the apps on the root of the SD card. Restart phone ...

That would be for the built-in non-volatile storage1, not RAM. 128 GB of RAM is not something you will need in a mobile phone for a long time. 1 Strictly speaking, ROM is not the correct acronym because it stands for "read-only memory", which the built-in storage of your phone is obviously not.

The real problem is that the card is fake, not original. So I've just got my money back and bought a new one.

Starting with v8.1 which was released to those on the "Preview for Developers" yesterday, the new Storage Sense app allows for apps to be stored on the phone, or on the SD card. This update is due to be rolled out to all phones running 8.0 over the "next few months", and availability will vary by phone manufacturer and, in some cases, network operator.

You should wait : the current mobile build has a little bug with the storage setting. If you move from WP8 to W10M, your apps on the SD card will still be there. But with the current build we can't change the storage settings, so you should set them up before upgrading.

I heard that the Samsung Focus SD card is most misunderstanding feature of all Windows Phone phones. It was supposed to be used only for OEM and carriers do offer more room for games and files to the user. But without any possibility to remove or even use the SD card in another device. As far as I know when you insert the SD card in the phone you need to ...

Today I discovered there's an app in Nokia Beta Labs which lets you move maps to the SD card. It's called Storage Check: http://betalabs.nokia.com/trials/Storage-Check You just need to register your Nokia account and phone to the service. With this it should now be possible to offline as many maps as you want on your 620. For anyone else, the app works ...

Try using the disk checker tool in Windows. This may fix filesystem errors, otherwise the safest approach is to remove the apps folder and reinstall your apps from the store.

You'll have to move your apps to your phone first, power off the phone, put in new SD card, move apps on the new SD card. If your phone's storage isn't large enough, you'll have to do it in a couple of retries. I've tried copying everything in one go, also by dd-ing the original SD card to hard disk, and then dd it back to the larger SD card, thus making a ...

The recommended procedure is to move all your apps from the old microSD Card to internal storage till it's full using Storage Sense then shut down the phone, put in the new card, and move all the apps back over to that new card with Storage Sense. Notice how this doesn't leave you with a backup copy of the apps and their data on the old card for the case ...

How much map data do you want offline? I just checked and Austria is 200MB (based on your profile I chose this one). The entire USA is 2.5GB. I have a 920, so no SD card to test with, but I am thinking you can't choose where to store them at this time.

Solution 1 Format it via phone. Windows phone will format the SD card and remove the old app data. Solution 2 Connect your SD Card to a Linux PC. I have tried deleting System folders from Linux. It works perfectly.

Speed of game is directly proportional to the Class of sd card that we're using. Check the class of your sd card, mine is 10, games work good but there are occasional lags but they dont last long (the lags of course). Sd card with classes 4 or 6 probably creates worst experience. Always buy a sd card with good Class. Look at the below ...

You're not the only one experiencing this: I'm attempting to switch to the Lumia 820 from previous Lumia phones -- the 920 and the 720. Sadly, I'm seeing an issue that is also present on the Lumia 720, i.e.: with an SD card inserted, the camera takes longer to snap the first photo. The proceeding photos are typically snappy, but if you wait too long ...

You should be able to delete files from SD card trough Windows installed computer. Connect the phone via USB cable to computer and Windows should install basic drivers that will let you explore the contents of your phone. If you can't then try inserting your Mini SD card into SD card adapter and then into card reader. By doing that, you will get full ...

Lumia 620 with Windows Phone 8, you cannot install apps on SD Card. Wait for Windows Phone 8.1, your wish will come true :)

Just open my files < local storage < sd card. It contains all sd card storage items. You can easily delete from there.

I had same problem, I used copy and transfer software (in my case "Speed Commander 16pro")and it solved problem.

It would begin to download all of yours apps that were in backup, but then as soon as you don't have any space for anymore of the other apps, it will stop and warn you about low storage. It pauses all downloads and you would have to go into the store and retry the apps you want downloaded.

To answer you, its not possible. And as a app developer I am happy that Microsoft made this "stupid" decision else if anyone would have bought my app and downloaded on SD card - this could have been then distributed leaving me unhappy about lost income.

The biggest micro SD-Card according to MS is a 128 GB Card. The 32 GB Card shouldn't be a problem at all. The full specs can be viewed here

Every application you install on SD Card on windows phone device from store or under development app, that stores minor data in Phone memory like app tiles,tile titles, app title, etc. (minor data will not appear in "Files" app). So if you backup the app you installed from store or you installed from PC(Under development apps), Those all you need to install ...

Soft restarting did the trick. Something messed up, then? Annoying, but workable. Leaving this up in case anyone else encounters

I moved everything I could see to a map on my laptop, including one hidden file. The card is then seen as empty, but if you type win in the search box, you'll suddenly get a whole new view of stored info. This I copied as well and I deleted a huge wintemp file that is under AFBCC817 etc. ; local, temp. I then copied everything to a bigger SD-card and it ...

Try a soft reset, then wait for the photos app to sync all of your pictures. I had the same trouble when I switched my phone off for couple of hours, it's now working fine. Also, when you change SD cards always tap on safely remove the SD card.
