How to copy data between Sony Vita memory cards?

kreiley

I got a larger memory card to replace the small one that I filled up after downloading only a few games. How can I transfer the games from one memory card to the other so that I don’t have to download them again and/or lose my save data? Note to Sony: the cost of Vita memory cards is ridiculous.

The easiest way is to connect your Vita to a PC, then use the Content Manager on your Vita to save all of your data to your PC’s HDD. Switch out your memory card in your Vita, and transfer everything back to your Vita. And yes, the price they charge for Vita memory cards is absurd. $30 for an 8GB card! I don't know why they didn't just use SD cards.
