I have purchased a Kingston 8gb SDHC micro SD to replace the 2gb card supplied with my handset.

I used the phone to format the new card and transferred all the existing files on the 2gb card (music, maps etc) using my PC to the new card. I have made sure the files went in the correct folders and I can't see that I have missed any.

 The new card works fine in the handset and I can access everything I could on the phone previously with the exception of the installed applications. All that shows when I go to installations (off the main menu) is the Icon for the application manager. There are no icons for the individual applications as there are with the original card. If I open the file manager the applications are listed as installed but I cannot access them. If I put the original card back in the handset everything becomes as it was before and they are all available again.

Does anyone know how to get the apps over to the installations menu on the new card or are the apps encrypted in some way to prevent this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yeah unfortunately this happens whenever you format your phone and back up your files and applications onto memory card. Best to download the applications again and re-install.

Thanks for that. I suspected this may be the case. Most of the apps are not that useful anyway so will re-install only the ones I use.
