    the stuff from the old one - any ideas?

    Format the new stick in the phone, then copy the files from the old to the
    new stick
    with a MS reader-writer. Dont forget to set the view options in the explorer
    to "show all"
    so you dont miss any important system files.
    if you havent got a card-reader, use the craddle and do a full phone and
    memorystick
    backup, then swap the sticks, format it and restore the backup. this is a
    bit risky because
    sometimes restoring will not work properly, especially when you have
    Appforge installed.
    So if u havent got already a cardreader, get one. Here on the continent you
    can get them
    for about 10 quid.

    Greetings,
    Martin

    Just restored data on the memmory card to the new one (thanks Martin)

    Have another question though - can you set the phone up to store sms
    messages on the memory card rather than phone memory?

    No, but with this you can put them where you want:

    Thanks - I was looking at another one on the same site (but couldn't
    download for some reason). This looks like it does the same job!

    Cheers,

    Re: P800 & Memory stick duo question

    Hey Bowman,

    i can now save them to a text file on the stick. However, when I move the
    text file to my laptop and open it - I just get a page of gibberish
    (different from my usual text I mean ;-)

    SWSMS Manager - I can't get the programme to install on my laptop. It keeps
    telling me ther's a file missing. I'm going to email them for a new copy.

    At least I can clear space on the phone noow - 800 texts takes up a bit of
    space!
