How do I change memory card on C6 without loosing the data?

[ Edited ]

Hi, when I bought my Nokia C6 this week I thought I could change to a bigger memory card, but I was wrong.

When I changed to a bigger memory card all the data that was on the old card disappeared from the phone. It was not only images and mp3's but also the games that came with the phone. How exactly do I transfer the files from the old card to the bigger one? I can not put all of the files in the phone memory either, because it is too small.

As a matter of fact I could only find the images and music files in the old memory (using ovi suit). No other files where I able to find. So where are the games anyway?

That is exactly what I wanted to know.I have a 2GB card that came with my C6-01 and plan to upgrade to a higher memory.So how shall I transfer apps to new card? I know I would have no problems with music, video and image files.

This is just a suggestion. Not sure whether it Will work. Back up the contents of the old memory card to your pc using Ovi suite. Then replace the old with new card and restore the back up on to the new one. Its worth a try...

rest images and mp3 can also be done by these methods

Use PC Suite or Ovi Suite to make a backup of your old memory card, then replace it with the new one and "restore" your files from the backup you've created. Works, I've done this too (512 MB to 8 GB).

In case of a card-change I would prefer using:

    robocopy <drive_letter_of_old_card>:\ <drive_letter_of_new_card>:\ /MIR

or, if there's only one MicroSD-slot

    robocopy <drive_letter_of_old_card>:\ <temporary_folder_path>\ /MIR

(interchange cards)

    robocopy <temporary_folder_path>\ <drive_letter_of_new_card>:\ /MIR

 

For further information on using robocopy or the command line, refer to the internet (primarily the pages of Microsoft).

Re: How do I change memory card on C6 without loosing the data?

Symbian devices have these folders that is not shown by connecting to oc through your phone -
E\private
E\sys
E\system
if u want to change your memry card without losing any of ur app installed in yor memory card, then you must connect yor card to pc with card reader or something else and copy all those system files to your new memory card.
