    I ordered one of the Sony 64GB microSd cards from Amazon. What is the best way to copy the pics and stuff from my old one to the new one? My home computer HATES the adapters that come with them! I use Blackberry Link for backups. The card will be going in to my Verizon Z30.

    Enable USB mass storage on your BlackBerry then connect it to the computer.

    Move everything over, then eject, swap out memory cards. Then connect to the computer again in mass storage and move everything over. Done.

    Insert 16GB card, copy some files into the phone internal memory, insert New card, copy files to new card, delete files from internal memory, - and keep going until job done. No PC, no problem

    Copy the files to pc then to the phone.... Avoid using the phone, as it's faster using a sd adapter or laptop sd card reader. Just my two penneth.

    This is a great place for advice! My computer hates the adapters! Will try to enable the USB mass storage transfer method!

    If you have backed up your media with Link, it shouldn't be an issue plugging the phone in with the new sd card using Link. You can even pick and choose which media to transfer to the new sd card.

    Am expecting that Sony card in a couple of days. Any formatting issues or tips I should keep in mind?

    Just pop it in the phone and go. You should be fine. If your phone tells you to format it then do so using the phone.

    Did a backup last night and tried to restore the media to the new SD card today. It did not work for some reason. Using the USB mass storage did work. Thanks to all that replied!

    Now that I'm using the 64GD Sony media card, I can't share media over the network from the card to my Xbox, or remote file from the PC like I could can with my 32gig Sandisk.
    I'm guessing that it's because the 32Gig formatted to Fat32, but my Q10 formatted the 64GB to exFat.
    Any insight?

    Move all ur 64gb items to cut PC, format card to Fat32 and put files back on it? Not sure if that would work.

    Issue improved, but not resolved. Will try to reformat to Fat32 as advised:
    Improved issue by restarting phone with card inside. It did a proper scan for media files (a few minutes) and now the sharing works over network to the Xbox 360 as it did with my 32gig . But still can't access the SD card on Windows 7 over network. Can only access the device memory

    Fixed!

    EDIT: Got a small OS update today. Just ignored it at first since the OS version didn't change. Just thought it was some carrier settings or something.
    And it turns out that I can now access the exFat formatted 64GB card through wifi!

    Yeah that's what the update was for. It added support for 64GB cards and larger.
