    I have a 16gb memory card in my 9650. I want to swap it into my new 9930. Should I copy all the files on the 16gb card to a folder on my computer, format the 16gb card in the new 9930 and then copy all my files back? Will that work? any suggestions will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Copy you files from the old car onto you computer. Insert the new card and format it and then just copy these files on your computer back to the new card. When you plug your Blackberry device into your computer, the card will show up as a drive.

    That's exactly what I would do. And yes it will work perfectly fine.

    What is the issue with simply pulling the memory card out of the 9650 and inserting it into the 9930?

    That is what I am thinking as well. Unless someone says that is a stupid idea. Then I was just funning you.

    You don't have to do all that. Take your MSDcard and place it in the 9930.

    You are done.

    Here are the two options offered by RIM.

    Move the media files on your microSD card
    Option A: Move the microSD card
    1. Remove the microSD card from your old device.
    2. Insert the microSD card into your new BlackBerry smartphone.
    Option B: Copy your media files to a new microSD card in your new smartphone
    1. Plug your old device into your computer.
    2. Enable USB Mass Storage on your device when prompted.
    3. Copy all files to a folder on your computer.
    4. Disconnect your old device from your computer and plug in your new BlackBerry smartphone.
    5. Enable USB drive on your smartphone when prompted.
    6. Copy all files to your new smartphone.

    Nothing really, but why not have a backup just in case something goes south?

    You should always have a backup, of everything these days. I back up my Berry daily and my memcard (x3+/week)

    Course if you are waiting to back up your memcard only when updating devices...LoL

    That is exactly how to do it with a new phone and SD card.... Always start fresh and you wont have any errors.

    That is what I do with all of mine including what I did with my new Bold 9930 I just got with the same size card as yours.

    I swap my micro SDs in and out of other blackberries all the time with no problem but there also isn't anything on it that I don't have backed up somewhere...

    Generally it's pretty safe. If you have encryption turned on with device key it may be bit tricky.
