i have a 16G in my DriodX - will i be able to use this SD card in SGS3 ?
One verizon rep will tell that it does come with a sd card and the next one will say that it does not come with one. so who knows. but yes you can use your other sd card in the s3
Just checked. Yeah, so mine's already FAT32. Plug phone in. Set as USB Mass Storage mode. Go to My Computer. Right click on the removable drive that is your phone. Select Properties: Check the file system. If it's not FAT32 then keep reading.
Back in my computer, right click the drive again and do format. Select FAT32. Leave everything else at default. GO
* FORMATTING ERASES ALL DATA ON THE SD CARD
** I don't know if you really need to format it. Perhaps SG III will read FAT 16
I think it will read anything you put in it, but there have been problems with recording and reading from the card if its not formatted properly.Originally Posted by armedmonkey
ok... so im confused....
when i get the new SGS3 phone , can i just take my sd card from my Driod X and put it in the new phone WITHOUT doing all of this?
if i have to format my sd card on my computer... will i lose all my data already on the card?

LadyPhoenix, as I said, formatting will erase all your data. As for your other question, I'm not sure. I'm willing to bet it will read your sd card just as well as the DX. In fact, my DX is already formatted in FAT32. I don't remember if I did it myself or not though. You can easily copy all of your data to your harddrive before formatting. If you need any additional help or guidance on the process (which is really easy, I promise) feel free to PM me. That said, I'd just wait until you get your new phone before doing anything. If it reads it, you're all set.
