    Micro SD card help?!

    Hi,
    I currently have a 16 gb class 2 micro SD card in my D1. I also have a 16 gb class 4 micro SD card in my possesion, completely empty (I think).
    So I ould like to know:

    1: How can I run liek a diagnostics on a card, to find out stuff that was supposed to be deleted, and more info about it.

    2: What is the best way for me to copy all of my stuff from one card to the other, then totally erase the other card.

    3: Drive forensics? I think that will answer my 1st question, but what is it and how cna I get it?
    I have Windows XP, Mac OSX leopard, a D1

    P.S. Are kingston 32 gb micro SD cards good quality?

    1) Got a Linux box? FSCK it. Got a Windows box? Run scandisk. Those will check for errors. Want to totally wipe it? Do a full format on your PC and then then format it again in your phone.

    2) Copy it to your PC and then see answer 1, transfer it to the new card.

    3) No idea. However, a class 4 card will run no faster in your Droid than a class 2. The Droid is only able to transfer at class 2 speed.

    P.S. Some Droids have problems running some 32GB cards.

    I was a fetus

    I think I may still have been a fetus when MSDOS was the mainstream, so how exactly do I run scandisk?

    What is it showing me?

    When I run chkdsk, it is just showing me file sizes, and free space? I was trying to locate EXACTLY where the files that were "deleted" are.

    I got the SD card as an insurance replacement

    I received the class 4 as an insurance replacement, so I am curious about what files may still be on it.

    I haven't looked so I couldn't tell you how effective this is, but it sounds promising.

    So you are trying to see if there are files on the card from the "previous customer"?

    That's an interesting tactic.
