I recently inserted an microSD card into my phone, and after rebooting, some apps have disappeared. I believe these were ones stored on the internal SD memory, and the mount point changed from /sdcard to /HWUserData.

I've copied over all the data from the internal SD to the external and managed to get everything working again. What is the proper procedure for inserting a microSD card after you have already installed plenty of applications and saved things to the internal memory?

Hello (new guy here, please be gentle).

I've had the same issue - I installed about 30 apps, and moved them all to the internal SD card. Then I put in an 8GB card to hold music and photos... now no more apps. When I click on anything, I get 'Activity not found'.

Does this mean we can't use the internal SD if we've got an external one? What a shame (and a waste of 2G) if that's true!

Still, it's quite a nice phone (especially at the price).

ah good warning, i wondered how this works! so is it like cameras - the internal SD is like a fallback for not having sd card?
