    Hello,
    I have a Droid X and wanted a bigger SD card so I bought a 8g card to replace my 2g. I did the transfer and it slowed my phone, it kept locking up, and I eventually had to take it out a put back my 2g SD.
    Before I made the switch I backed everything up onto the desktop of my laptop and as soon as I put in the new card that was the first thing I did was to replace all the stuff from there.
    Did I do something wrong? Is the card too big? Bad or wrong Micro SD card? any idea or help appreciated.

    I've got a 32 gig card in my Droid Incredible, so I doubt size is an issue.

    What "class" is your card? I'm using a class 10, which is speedy. A class 1 or 2 is pretty slow.

    You can test your card with the free SD Tools app.

    You may want to try to format the card and see if that helps. What brand is the SD Card?

    Guess its my being cheap.

    Thanks! Think that would explain alot. I had no idea there were differences in cards. I bought a cheap generic card on ebay and; well, you get what you pay for!
    Also, I did format the card, before I loaded it. Guess need to spend the money and get a faster card.
    Thanks!!
