An Android phone has one 8GB or 16GB storage. To expand storage, device often has a SD card slot. Keeping files stored on SD card rather than phone makes it easier to swap them from device to device. It also keeps your phone storage free for things such as the OS and apps, which may keep things moving along quickly.

How to move apps from Android phone to SD card

Before getting started, you should make sure whether the manufacturers of your Android phone let you run apps from the SD card or not, because of the way they mount SD card. For example, some the Galaxy phones can’t do so. In part this is for performance reasons, and in part because the SD card is outside the walled world of your Google account which may make permissions tricky.

This isn’t the case with all Android phones, however. If you can move apps to your SD card, the process is likely to be something like this: go to the Apps menu, find the app you want to move. Then through that particular App’s settings, select move to SD card.

How to move files, photos from Android phone to SD card

By default files such as music, movies, photos and documents will save to the phone. Let’s concentrate on moving files.

First of all look in your phone’s app menu – is there something called ‘File Manager’ or similar? If so, you are in clover.

If not, don’t worry – you have can utilize a PC and a USB cable. That being the case you can mount your phone or tablet like a USB drive on your PC. Click into it from the PC and you’ll see the file structure, like any other portable storage. Then simply drag-and-drop files to the SD card. This ability to see and utilize your phone as USB storage is one of the key advantages of Android over iOS.transfer-data-from-android-to-sd-card

There is one other possibility that is worth considering. In some recent versions of Android, if you go to Settings > Storage, you’ll find an option called ‘Transfer data to SD card’. Here you can select or all data or certain types of file (photos/music etc.), and transfer them from the phone to the SD card via a single click. Do this periodically to keep your phone’s storage free.

 

How to save files direct to SD card on Android

Finally, here’s how to set up your Android phone so that new files automatically save to the expansion card. Select the app you use for that type of file – for instance ‘Camera’ for photos. Then go to Settings > Storage or similar. There should be an option called something like ‘Save to SD card by default’. Enable this option.

What if you lost data on Android phone during transferring? You can find the best solution with third-party software Android Data Recovery. It can recover photos, contacts, text messages, call history and videos from all Android phone running Android and newer, Android 3.0 to 4.3, Android 2.3 or earlier. It supports all Android phones and tablets, such as Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola, Google, Asus, Sony, and so forth.

In this digital world, everything comes in digits. Photos, music, movies, documents… no matter what type of files they are, as a computer user nowadays, you are surely slowly accumulating data on your computer. Maybe there is a folder contains over 300 digital photos on your desktop, or there could be a movie collection of over 100 high-definition movie sitting on your computer. Either way the computer space has been taken up. And if something happen to your computer, the data you stored on your PC might just vanish for good. In order to avoid this kind of incident, an external hard drive is a must. So before buying an external hard drive, what should you know about it?

Reasons for Buying an External HD

1. For freeing the space of your computer
Let’s say you are a hardcore media consumer (and you do not have plans on quitting your download habits soon), and you are building your own music library with lossless music, which takes up a lot of space, thus slows down your computer. And of course you wouldn’t want your efforts go in vain when the hard drive or your computer crashes. So you need extra and more secured space for all your media files.
2. For securing the important data
It is never a good choice to keep your important data in just one place. Everything could happen, hardware crashes, virus attack, accidentally deletion or format, and cost your data. It is crucial that we back up data regularly and keep the backup files in a different physical location, so you will have an alternative when something goes wrong.

Types of External Hard Drive

So when you decided to buy an external hard drive, there are generally two types to choose from. Should I buy a portable hard drive or an external hard drive? Well, the differences between these two lie in the following subjects:
1. Function: External hard drive are designed for data storage, whereas portable hard drive data carriage. So external hard drives are usually treated as a part of the computer, simply add more space to a PC’s storage, and it needs power source to run. While the portable ones are usually easy to carry around, and could transfer files from one computer to another easily.
2. Size: External hard drive is larger than portable hard drive, both in its size and capacity. Portable hard drive is usually smaller, for it is meant to be carried around. A portable unit could be as small and thin as a smartphone.
3. Price: For its bigger capacity, external drives are usually more expensive than portable drives. An external drive may have bigger space for data storage than a computer’s internal storage. While few portable drives could have that much capacity.

Speed of External Hard Drive

There are speed differences between various drives. Generally speaking, external hard drive could be divided into two categories, by their ports and types.
1. Port: When it comes to the speed of hard drive (the time it takes to read and write files), the port of the drive is what we have to consider. Nowadays the drives in the market are either using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. From the tendency of its development, what we can conclude is that USB 3.0 would increase its popularity. It is much faster than USB 2.0, it is just a matter of time that 3.0 takes over.
2. Type: Besides from the port difference, hard drives could also be divided into solid-state drives and hard disk drives. SSD is extremely faster, safer than HDD. The downsides of SSD are that it has a life-span, which might just stop working without any sign, and, it is much more expensive than HDD. If you have a lot of documents and files to be stored, I think a HDD is suggested.

Regular Back Up External Hard Drive

Don’t ever think that data loss couldn’t happen to you if you have an external hard drive. Buying one to back up your files is a good idea, but it will be useless if you don’t actually back up you data with it. In case you forget, set up some kind of automatic backup, and set the time for back up at the end of the day or when you won’t be using the computer for the process of backing up will drastically slow down your computer. I suggest backing up the files every time you have new information added in, as long as you remember to do so.

Above is just a way of preventing the data loss, if it indeed happened to you, please try Card Data Recovery to recover the photos, videos, music, documents and other files from you external hard drive.

As the popularity of digital photograph and the digital photography revolution, digital camera became more and more affordable for most people. The widely use of digital camera stimulus the market of digital camera memory card. This article will introduce some things you need to know about digital camera memory card. If you are considering buying a digital memory card or are using a digital memory card, this article is definitely for you.

1. Type of Cards

There are three broad and popular types of memory cards for digital cameras:  Compact Flash (CS), Secure Digital (SD), and Smart Media (SM).  Most consumer cameras only allow users using one type of card. However, there are also a few of the top of the line professional DSLR cameras might allow for using both Compact and SM cards at the same time.

2. Memory Capacity

Most digital camera available on the market are at least 8 megapixels and higher. So your digital camera memory card should be at least 2 GB to make sure you have enough space to store your photos.  A 2 gig SD card, for example, on my 12 megapixel Canon Power shot G9 can hold about 380 large JPEG size photos, but if I choose to shoot RAW format photos, that 2 gig card can only hold about 117 photos.

3. Number of Shots

The type of shooting you do can impact how many images your memory card can hold. Your camera may tell you that the card can hold 380 images, but depending on the exposure settings and resolution sizes for each image taken, the file sizes can vary, though not significantly.

3. Keep a Backup

Here the backup we mean both keeping a spare backup digital camera memory card and keeping a backup of the data stored on your memory card.  If your camera included a rudimentary small size memory card, tuck that card away in your camera bag and keep it solely as a backup.  Thus if for any reason you fill up your main card(s) or forget to put your memory card back into your camera, you have the backup card with at all times.

Backing up the data stored on your memory card is also very important, because you cannot foresight when you may lost your data either because of human errors or the errors of the camera. However, if unfortunately lost all data on your digital camera memory card before backing up them, you can turn to Card Data Recovery to recover your lost data with ease.

Choosing a right SD card is not an easy thing for most people as hundreds of manufacturers market thousands of memory cards and devices built to SD standards in a variety of storage capacities, speed classes and three different physical sizes: SD, miniSD, and microSD.

The difference among SD, miniSD, and microSD card

SD memory cards are typically used in personal computers, video cameras, digital cameras and other large consumer electronics devices.

The microSD and miniSD cards are commonly used in smaller electronic devices like mobile phones and tablet computers. Some memory card manufacturers offer adapters allowing microSD cards to fit a traditional SD card slot. This gives you even greater versatility and flexibility to use the card in a mobile phone as well as a computer or video camera.

How to Choose the Right SD card?

To determine the right card to match your device, always consult the device’s user manual or contact the manufacturer. All memory card options are readily available in the marketplace, produced and distributed by a wide range of manufacturers, in retail outlets around the world including drug stores, electronics and computer shops and Internet sites.

1. Physical Format

The first thing to consider when getting a SD card is where you’re going to use it. Different cameras, camcorders, and smartphones use different sizes of card, and while you can start with the smallest and use adapters to work your way up, it’s generally best to use the card size intended for the device.

2. Follow your device’s user’s manual

Manufacturers produce SD memory cards in a range of memory capacities designed to fit your needs and budget. Today, products using the SDXC standard will have the greatest memory capacity and fastest performance when using Ultra High Speed (UHS) standards. Products using the SDHC and UHS standards will also enjoy the fastest performance. Your device’s user’s manual should help you select the memory card standards that are right for your device.

3. Determine the right memory capacity and speed

You should consider how you will use a memory card to determine the right memory capacity and speed choice. For cameras, consider the quality of the picture resolution of every photo, and for your MP3 player, the bit-rate required for smooth playback. Take a look at our reference chart that illustrates the various storage capacities provided by our standards.

4. SD card brand

Brand is also an important aspect that every SD card users should keep in mind. For the brand, I’d really advice you to stick with the reputable brands and never ever buy cheap, counterfeited, “brand” cards for cheap or counterfeited may easily cause card data loss. Recovery card data is a troublesome thing unless you use Card Data Recovery software. It can recover delete, lost or formatted photos, video, audio and documents in seconds with several clicks.

So far we have discussed four aspects that we need to keep in mind when choose the right SD card for your digital device. If you are considering buying a SD card, take these aspects into consideration and find right SD card.

Speed-Shutter-Function

 

If you are one of those who can take good pictures with digital camera but without knowing how it works, or who are going to get yourself a digital camera, it’s time we took a brief look at how a digital camera works. Go through this article.

The first camera was created by Frencher inventor Nicephore Niepce in the late 1820s, which is capable of recording a permanent image, however, his early cameras were difficult to use. Through the 1800s and 1900s, cameras continue to evolve in complexity, until in december 1975, Steven Sasson and Kodak developed the first digital camera that captured images and stored them on a magnetic cassette tape, which can be transferred to other storage media or printed out. Though the digital camera comes a long way, how they work remains the same.

 

The Basics:

Like the traditional film camera, a digital camera also uses a shutter and eye to caputre light from an image. However, instead of using a chemical process to imprint the image on a film negative, it captures the image digitally. The data representing the image is stored in bits and bytes. In most cases, digital cameras store images on flash memory cards or USB sticks, along with which, Card data recovery softwares occurred to recover all your important pictures or files when your flash memroy cards are USB sticks aren’t working.

 

CCD and CMOS Sensors:

To capture light from an image in digital format, a digital camera uses a special sensor, namely: CCD(charge-coupled device) or CMOS(complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensor. Both are the size of a fingernail and fabricated out of silicon, the surface of the sensor contains millions of micro-sized diodes that capture a single pixel of the image captured by the lens eye. Generally, digital cameras with higher megapixel ratings take higher resolution pictures than those with lower megapixel specifications.

 

Color Conversion:

Each film cameras could only take photographic image in black and white. However, the modern cameras use a process called “interpolation” to filter red, blue and green colors an then combine them once the shuttter allows an image to pass to the eye of the camera, as we know, all the colors in viewable spectrum contain some mixture of red, blue and green, and the sensors in the camera provides all the red, green and blue information for the processor in the camera to interpret colors from the image scene passed from the lens to the sensor.

 

The Computer Inside:

If your digital camera can perform such basic editing functions as red-eye removal, image enchancement and borders, it’s because a single-chip computer in the digital camera allows you to. The more expensive and larger the chip, the more advanced capacity it has.

Are you upset about not taking good pictures whether you are a professional or an amateur? Well, it’s quite normal. There are several photography mistakes that are surprisingly common. We’ll explain how did these mistakes occur and give you tips to prevent them.

Mistake 1: Red-eye:

 Red-eye only affects a small area, but it can have a big impact on the quality of your photo, determining whether to hang up on the wall with frame or one stashed somewhere in the corner.

 

What causes it

1. When you take photos in a dim or dark setting, the light from your camera’s flash reflects off the subject’s eyes.

2. The resulting red glow is the blood vessels illuminated within the subject’s retinas.

How to prevent it:

1. Avoid using your flash whenever possible.

2. If you have to use your flash, ask your subject not to look directly into the camera lens.

3. Look for the red-eye reduction feature offered on many digital cameras.

 

Mistake 2: Lack of a focal point

Even an image that holds many qualities of a great photo (sharp focus, accurate colors, correct lighting) can be compromised by lacking an obvious focal point or main subject

 

What causes it

1. Shooting your subject against a busy or competing background or foreground.

2. Trying to fit too much into one picture. (The entire family, the scenery, and a famous landmark are too much for a single vacation photo.)

3. Taking a photo from far away, making your subject too small to be an obvious focal point.

 

How to prevent it

1. Physically move closer to your subject.

2. Use your camera’s zoom feature.

3. Before you snap your shot, ask yourself: “What is the main subject of this photo?” and “Does my subject fill the frame?”

 

Mistake 3: Blur

Whether it’s low lighting, a shaky hand holding the camera, or a subject on the move, blur can ruin an otherwise great picture.

 

What causes it

 

1. A camera moving or shaking—even the slightest amount.

2. Shutter lag (the pause after you trigger the shutter before a camera takes a photo) while your subject is in motion.

3. Insufficient lighting.

How to prevent it

 

1. Use a tripod or brace yourself against a stationary object so it’s easier to hold the camera still.

2. Avoid shutter lag by holding the shutter button on your camera halfway down, waiting for your subject to make their move, and then pressing the button down the rest of the way.

3. See if your camera offers an Action mode for automatic shutter speed adjustment, or a Night or Night Portrait mode to help with low lighting. (A tripod is usually necessary for these modes due to the extended exposure times.)

 

Mistake 4: Underexposed photos

 

Exposure is the amount of light that passes through your camera lens. When a photo is underexposed, it appears too dark, making if difficult to see the subject clearly or to distinguish details.

 

What causes it

 

1. Shooting in a dimly lit space.

2. Standing too far away from your subject.

3. Setting your camera’s shutter speed (the length of time the shutter stays open) too fast.

How to prevent it

 

1. If you’re shooting indoors, move near a window or lamp to add extra light.

2. Move closer to your subject.

3. Manually adjust the shutter speed on your camera so that it’s slower.

 

Mistake 5: Overexposed photos

When an excess of light passes through a camera lens, the resulting photo can be too bright, washing-out the subject, obscuring details, and creating harsh shadows.

 

What causes it

 

The main cause of overexposed photos is bright light, whether it’s indoor lighting or natural sunlight.

How to prevent it

 

1. If you’re shooting on a sunny day, look for a shady spot for your subject.

2. Use a flash to help even out the lighting and avoid severe shadows.

3. If possible, take advantage of overcast days—they’re ideal for outdoor photography.

 

Keep in mind these tips can often make great photographs! Remember to store these I safe place, and just in case, if you accidently lost or delete your precious photos, we can offer you the best solution—Card data recovery.

There are scores of SD cards of all shapes, sizes, and speeds available, so picking the right one for each device can be slightly confusing.

When it comes to flash memory cards, there are three aspects you need to consider: physical format, size, and speed. We’ll explore the distinctions below.

Physical Format
The first thing to consider when getting a memory card is where you’re going to use it. Different cameras, camcorders, and smart phones use different sizes of card, and while you can start with the smallest and use adapters to work your way up, it’s generally best to use the card size intended for the device.

The standard SD card is the largest and has been in use the longest, measuring 32 by 24 by 2.1 mm (HWD), weighing 2 grams, and showing the signature cut-corner profile SD cards are known for. Most digital cameras you can buy today use standard-size SD cards. Even though they’re the largest SD card, they’re still very small, and are dwarfed by the Compact Flash cards used by professional photographers in high-end digital cameras, like the $5,000 Canon 1D Mark IV. However, the cards can get even smaller.

MiniSD cards, the least frequently used format these days, measure 21.5 by 20 by 1.4 mm (HWD) and weigh just a gram, making them just over a third the volume and taking up just over half the area of a full-size SD card. Instead of cut corners, miniSD cards have a tapered corner to help you orient the card when putting it in a slot. This design aspect follows with the smallest of the SD cards, the microSD card.

MicroSD cards, which are used in most cell phones and smart phones, are downright Lilliputian, measuring 15 by 11 by 1 mm (HWD) and weighing only half a gram. With a total volume of 165 mm3, you could fit nine microSD cards inside a single SD card (though realistically, with the slight lip found on the end of microSD cards, you could probably only squeeze in six).

Generally, microSD cards cost slightly more than SD cards of the same size and speed class, but that, along with the physical size are the only effective differences.

Capacity
SD cards offer different storage capacities, and that amount of space determines the card’s size classification. Odds are the microSD card in your smart phone isn’t a microSD card. It’s a microSDHC card, or Micro Secure Digital High Capacity. “Standard” SD cards max out at 2GB capacity, based on their classification and the controller used by SD-only devices. Most SD cards you’ll find today are technically SDHC, with capacities between 4GB and 32GB. The largest class is SDXC, or Secure Digital Extended Capacity, can range from 64GB to 2TB. (Currently, no cards actually get anywhere near 2TB; the largest capacity available is 128GB.)

While larger is better, you need to make sure your device can use the larger card. The SD/SDHC/SDXC classification isn’t just for cards, but for devices as well. Older digital cameras can only read SD cards, making SDHC cards useless. Similarly, cameras that aren’t SDXC-compatible won’t accept 64GB cards. Most current devices are SDHC compatible, but double-check your older devices before getting SDHC cards, and check the specs on your newer gear before getting SDXC cards.

Speed Class
SD cards are also available in various speeds. If you’re using a point-and-shoot digital camera or a standard-definition pocket camcorder, speed class won’t matter much. If you’re shooting high-resolution RAW photos with a digital SLR, however, you need a quick card to take more than two or three shots at a time. SD cards are generally described by their Speed Class, ranging from Class 2 (slowest) to Class 10 (fastest). There’s also a separate, even faster category called UHS Class 1 (for Ultra High Speed), but most current devices can’t use them.

Generally, if you want to shoot HD video or if you plan on taking a lot of high-resolution photos in quick succession (or use a digital SLR’s RAW image file format), buy a Class 10 card. If you’re planning to just take snapshots or occasionally show videos, Class 4 or Class 6 will do. Since even smart phones can record HD video these days, Class 2 cards aren’t the best choice. They’re simply too slow to record HD video, so you’re limiting your device’s features. The price difference between Class 4, Class 6, and Class 10 cards can vary, but not vastly. Always check your device’s documentation for support information before you commit to a memory card.

In closing, 4 smart tips are provided:

Back it up: You should always remember to save your images to multiple locations such as your hard disk, an online service or other external devices.

Format your card: Before use, always format your card in the camera. This function deletes data and creates new folders to prevent database errors while shooting.

Data Recovery: If you accidentally delete an important image, stop shooting and use Card Data Recovery to recover the image. 

Protect your investment: If you have a single card, use the supplied plastic holder to prevent impact damage when storing it. If you have multiple cards, use a case to organize them better so you’ll know which cards are used or unused.

Although more and more digital cameras include internal memory, nearly all photographers rely on memory cards to store their photos. Memory cards, which typically are a little larger than a postage stamp, can store hundreds or thousands of photos. Consequently, any problem with the memory card can be a disaster … no one wants to lose all of their photos. Use these tips to troubleshoot your SD and SDHC memory card problems.

Missing Drive

Another commonly occurring problem is when your SD card is connected to your PC but is not showing up in your My Computer menu. Remove all of your USB devices. Then go to device manager and uninstall your USB SD card adapter. One uninstalled, reboot your system and then plug the card back in, Window’s should automatically detect the device.

Vista Compatibility

Your SD card may not be recognized by Window’s Vista because of a compatibility issue. To resolve this issue, make sure you have the latest Window’s service pack installed, because this contains a fix for this bug. If you have the latest service packs, Windows offer a “hotfix” that will fix this specific problem. If you have the latest service pack and you’ve installed the hotfix, you can contact Microsoft via their support software for additional help

Formatting

Before you load any images or information on your SD card, you will need to format it. Formatting is where you attune your device to your computer and peripheral hardware. For this you will need to insert the card into your PC, closing any auto play windows that appear. Once you have done this, and the device when it appears in the My Computer window, right click and select format.

Write Protection

If your SD card is giving you write protection errors, it could be that the write protection switch is set to the on position. Most SD cards come with a switch you can set to prevent your data from being erased or written over. If this switch is set to on, you will not be able to add or delete information from your card, so make sure you turn the card’s protection off before attempting to write to the card.

 

Considerations

For any problem not listed here, there is general advice for problem solving. If you cannot determine why your card is not working properly, reinstall the drivers. When you do this, make sure you delete your old drivers, restart, then install the new ones. If you have another memory card, plug it in and see if your PC can read it — if so, your SD card may be damaged. As with any peripheral device, make sure your card is securely plugged into your USB adapter or the SD card slot. If you lost data due to the issues above, try SD card data recovery (or called SDHC card data recovery) to retrieve lost photos.
