    Dear,
    Its pretty much possible.
    All you need to do is just take a backup of your Current SD card data.
    Restore that backup on your New SD card
    .
    All the data of current SD card will be there.
    No need to worry.
    Thank you..!

    You can transfer that if you are not having an extension partition for the applications. All you have to do is transfer the files from one SD card to another also please note that do not do this when the phone is turned on. Turn the phone off and then remove your SD card by connecting it to a PC and then transfer all the files to the new SD card. If you are using an extension partition then do backup using the Clockworkmod recovery to backup the extension and restore it after doing a partition on the new Sd card.
    Hope this Helps.

    Re: Is it possible to transfer applications from one SD card to the other one

    Hi there,

    Yes, you can transfer the apps installed in your one SD CARD to another SD CARD.
    You can do this with the help of an app called BETTER APP MANAGER.
    This is a free app that you can download from the PLAY STORE.
    This app allows you to make an .apk file of the app installed in your SD CARD and then you can transfer that .apk file to another SD CARD and the again install tha app through that file.

    Hop it helps!!

    regards!!

    You can transfer few things in Phone memory like applications which you have installed from Android market.& rest things like pictures,videos & Music etc.You should transfer those things in the computer first.Then delete all the files from the SD card.Then insert new SD card into CPU's jack.Then open the folder in which you have saved those things.Now click right mouse & move all the thing in new SD card.Then take out the SD card,insert in your phone.Check everything & ready to use.

    Offcourse you can transfer applications from one SD card to the other one

    To transfer applications from one SD card to the other one , you have to first take the backup of apps with the help of "Titanium Backup"

    Now you have to connect the device to PC and transfer the backup to your PC

    After this you can disconnect the device and remove the SD card from the device.

    Then insert the new SD card in the device and ocnnect it to your PC.

    Transfer the backup file to Sd card and disconnect the device

    Now you can restore the backup in the New Sd card

    Done !!

    Hello

    Yes you can transfer the apps. Just dont format your sd card.

    Its like copying to your pendrive.

    Copy all the content to your COMPUTER from your old sd card and then remove the sd card

    Then copy the contents to your new sd card in your phone via usb cable or by a card reader.

    Then put it in your phone. All the apps should work just fine, exactly the way they were.

    If any problem arises do contact again

    Thank You
