    I have the Droid 1, and I currently have the 16 GB card that came with it when I bought it. I have it filled up with music and apps and such, and I was wondering if I could get a 32 GB card for it. I didn't know if there would be any problems with transfering all my info and files from my 16gb to the 32 gb if i get one. I read that the droid 1 is 32 gb expandable, what exactly does that mean? Also, I looked for 32 gb memory cards online and they were all like 90 bucks, i was wondering if anybody knew where I could get one for cheaper? thanks for all of yalls help

    I swapped out my original SD card to the 32MB card without any issues. Just copied the contents over to my pc and then pasted them back to the new card after I formatted the new card.

    The cost you reference is better than I paid, so I can't help you find a cheaper alternative.

    Check ebay. You can find some, however they will more than likely be fake, and or not work.
    I tried a cheap one off ebay.
    It showed up okay on my computer, but would not work on my phone.
    I will buy another one. This time though I will buy it from verizon.
    Good luck finding one.

    Hi,

    I heard that you need to be running 2.2 in order to recognize an 32GB card.

    Is this true?

    Up here in Canada, we aren't scheduled to receive the 2.2 upgrade until Q1 2011.

    Thanks!

    rooting is always a great option.

    An SDHC card is a universal component. Any device that can accept a MicroSD card will accept it as long as the device supports SDHC (which most if not all do these days).

    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I actually am rooted, but, haven't made the switch to 2.2 yet. Most of the development for 2.2 for the Milestone seems to be pretty new so far. I was thinking of waiting until it matures up a bit. I'm reasonably happy with my 2.1 for now.

    But, will 2.1 recognize the 32GB card?

    Thanks!

    Well, there are plenty of sources. There are also plenty of threads where people share where they have purchased them if you don't know how to use Google Product Search or other online shopping tools.

    As with any other online/tech shopping, stick with reputable brands and resellers.

    90 is about as good as it typically gets currently. I'd be suspicious of anything cheaper.

    For what it's worth, I saw a listing on walmart.com for a 32Gb class 6 micro SD card for $98. Free shipping to the nearest store. May not be $20 like the ebay cards, but at least you know it's a legit card. I am hoping they come down even more around christmas.

    Are you sure that it is an micro card? I only found HDHC cards at that price. Cool if it's true, I've just about filled my 16 GB card. Never thought I'd ever fill it. I still remember when 4 GB was all I'd ever need, silly me.
