    It better have a 32GB card in there. If it doesn't go back to the store. Put your old card in the phone to copy everything off to your computer, then put the 32GB back in.

    Or just connect your INC to your computer via USB. That is what I did for my DX.

    The card is installed, hard to see it tho. You will have to remove the 32gb to install the old one.

    What I would suggest is to connect both phones to USB and copy what you want that way.

    Since the phone only supports one SD card, you want the bigger one (the 32 GB that the phone came with). That will put your phone at 40 GB total (8 on the phone, 32 on the card). Put that one in your Thunderbolt.

    Copy the contents off the Incredible to your PC (using a USB connection), and then connect your Thunderbolt to your PC and copy the data on your computer to your SD card.

    Incredible -> PC -> Thunderbolt
    Or, if you have more than one USB drive, you should be able to connect both devices and then copy what you want over.

    I've had the exact same issue with my Vortex and I actually took one back thinking it was a lemon. But alas, it's no lemon...it's probably a software problem, but after I rooted my phone (gingerbreak) the problem went away. Verizon tech support has no solution and neither do the idiots at the stores.

    Can someone tell me what actually saves to the SD Card? I downloaded the app...Mp3 Pro and downloaded some songs last night and thought it was saving to my SD card but looks like it downloaded to interal storage. This is what I miss about my Droid X. When I had my X I could download items specifically to my SD card. Now I have no idea where my items are being downloaded to.

    I called Verizon and Tech support told me that the Media Area is now considered my SD card? I'm steadily downloading songs and as far as I can see, nothing is on my SD card but a few pictures I took with the camera....Smh.....!

    I guess with the Maxx when you download items to your phone whether it be pictures, songs, videos etc, your phone automatically saves the item in its appropriate storage area whether it be internal storage, Media Area etc? IDK!

    Ya they really borked the whole storage/memory thing. When it comes to organizing, I like it to be clear and concise like my laptop.

    Select sd card for storage location in settings.

    Edit: select sd card by long pressing on media sync...

    astro file manager, found on the market. Navigate to the sd card.ext and peruse at Will,lol. You can also long press in settings on the sd card and move stuff to the card from internal.
