    I moved my 2G SD chip from my old Incredible to my new Moto Razr and it doesn't recognize it....and wants me to format it.
    Do I have to lose all the data (from various apps, etc)?...or is there some way?
    THX!

    if you have a sd card reader you can put the files on your computer. after doing so format it on the Razr then transfer it back over. Not sure if there's another method, but that's what I would do

    You could also put the sd card back into your incredible, connect the incredible to the puter, copy the contents to your puter, then format the sd card in your Razr and move the files from your puter to your Razr.

    ....what they said, cardreader is quicker for me personally, copy/paste the sd to a folder in windows, zap the card with the RAZR, stick it back in the cardreader and copy/paste back onto SD, out of reader, back into RAZR. Done and done. You can get a serious cool ten-in-one USB cardreader on 4m4z0n for like 3.00 and and shipping or thereabouts if you don't have one.

    Thanks...but argh!!

    I did all you folks suggested and still no go so I called Verizon's tech support and they said the microSD chip from the Incredible is NOT supported by Motorola!
    Apparently all SD chips are not created equal!....anyway, they're cheap and I'll pick up a new one....thanks again!

    I'm confused...is this a sd "chip" or sd "card"? Would they be one and the same or two completely different things. If it is an sd "card" then unless it came with the phone (and even then, it should be doubtful) then you should be able to copy the contents from it to your computer and even reformat it on your computer or your Razr. I have had the same sd card for my incredible, then charge, now Razr.

    Keep in mind that Verizon's pat answer when they don't have a solution is often "it can't be done" so don't trash that card just yet.

    Try using the format tool you can get at sdcard.org. it is intended to get around mfg incompatibilities

    np, glad I could help, I just found out about sdcard.org a few days ago myself, they are trying to create industry wide standards. 1st time I noticed this was years ago when a blackberry wouldn't see a card that had been formatted nokia, and niether one of them worked perfectly with cards formatted on windows. That tool is pretty cool, I've used it for all sd formats since I got it
