FIX SD-Card Import Problems
some Android Devices out there in the Market do not keep in Android Specifications and cause Problems while Backup and importing Data back.
FOR ALL, very important. Always UN-MOUNT your SD-Card before you remove it from your Device (in Android Settings) otherwise you may end up with a “0″ Size Backup File. After removing your SD-Card you may also check if the Backup File is bigger than 0 , that would already indicate the Backup worked.
Here I will share who Users fixed their device specific SD-Card Problem.
Device: HTC HERO
User just had to create a Folder /sdcard on his sdcard and copy all backup files *.myd into there
Device: GALAXY S2
There is an internal and external drive for the Samsung Galaxy S2 phone. External is what the info is saved to on the little card you put in the back of your phone that came from the old phone, and the phone itself only pulls and loads info for apps and stuff from the internal memory that it has, never the external. This means that it’s trying to pull backup data from a file that doesn’t exist because it’s going to the internal memory where the file isn’t stored, instead of to the external card where it is.
So here’s what I did:
I connected my phone to the computer. I had to download Kies first in order for my XP to recognize it in the first place, and then I did the following:
- Opened “My Computer”
- Located the two new drives that appeared when the phone was connected by usb. One drive is the external card, and the other drive is the internal drive for the phone. You figure out which drive is which. I knew the external was external because it had all of my previous pictures and music and stuff on it from my old phone, and the other drive only had folders and was lacking.
- Then you take the .myd file from the external, copy and paste it over to the other drive, not putting it in any folder or anything.
- You unmount your phone from the usb connection to the computer, safely from the phone.
- Then you go in and load the backup.
It worked for me doing those steps, so hopefully it’ll work for someone else. Thank you for the informative links! I was just glad that I was able to help figure it out, at least on my end.
