If you are up on Windows Phone 7 devices, you would know that most come with an inbuilt Micro SDHC card, which WP7 formats and treats as part of the phones internal storage. Now some WP7 devices make it easy to swap out the SD card like the Samsung Focus, but it’s not recommended for more than one reason. Not all SD cards it seems are created equal, as this user from XDA Devs found out. So Andy Hamilton, has done a pictorial, and now a video tutorial of swapping out the SD in the HTC Mozart 7, and it’s not for the feint hearted.
It’s a gargantuan effort to upgrade and I wonder how many people will rush out and buy a set of micro tools to facilitate this procedure. HTC by design, have made it incredibly hard to upgrade SD cards in their WP7 devices, intentionally I would think, to preserve their sleek form factors. Face it, the Trophy and the Mozart are lighter than the iPhone 4. They only bow down in regards to screen resolution.
The biggest thing to come out of this though, is a realisation that not all SD cards will be supported by WP7.
it seems at time Kingston Micro sd don’t run with wp7,sandisk Have no problem
sandisk 32gb class 2= 5,1mb/s in write so it faster than Kingston 32gb class 4
thank u,thank u so much to take time to do it for us
The very last post in the thread at XDA is above, the original poster [OP] did his video with a Kingston Class 4 32 Gb card and had to revert to a SanDisk Class 2 16 Gb card. Apparently the limitations are down to read/write speeds. Check out the videos at Andy’s YouTube Channel, and I’ve included a video of the procedure for the HTC HD7 below, that will let you swap the cards, without voiding your warranty.
Usual disclaimer, all of this is posted for your information only, Undertake any of these modifications at your own risk, you will void your warranty, if you attempt the procedure on the Mozart. So where can I order those tools?
