    Right so ive recently got a 64gb sd card. and i assumed that transfering the data from my current 16gb one would be enough for the 64gb to work in my sd2vita. yet for some reason the sd card doesnt get recognized at all.

    my plugins are at ur0 and my sd2vita is mounted at ux0... been at this all night...

    When you copied the contents, did you do it in the drive list in Windows, or in the drive itself?

    I just did the same thing and it worked for me! Make sure that you have the same amount of files and disk space occupied on both SD cards

    What I mean is that when you look at the properties on the pc it shoul have the same number of files and Space occuped as the original 16 gb one. Not the free space.

    Try this...
    Hopefully you have an SD card reader or something.
    Set whatever you're trying to copy from as the USB device in VitaShell, then connect your Vita to your PC. In My Computer, right-click the drive the Vita shows up as. Do NOT open it, just right-click and select "Copy."
    Go to somewhere, Desktop, wherever, then paste. It should create a folder named after the drive.
    Now, connect the new SD card however you were planning to (hopefully a reader).
    OPEN the drive letter-named folder you just created, select everything, copy and paste it to the 64GB card.
    That's how I had to do it to get mine to work properly when I first set it up.
    What this will also do is if, heaven forbid, you got a bad SD card, it'll tell you.

    nobody mentioned hidden files yet.

    ftp can't work
    usb works if you do it right.
