Transfer Footprints from HTC Eris to HTC Incredible 2

I switched from HTC Eris to HTC Incredible 2.  I want to transfer my Footprints thumbnails and data to HTC Incredible 2.  On the HTC Eris there is a folder on the SD card called .footprint that contains the footnotes.db file and folders for thumbnails and voices. The thumbnails for the footprints I have created are in the proper folder.


On the HTC Incredible 2, the footprints folder is on the SDcard as a subfolder of the .data folder.  That folder has a footprints.db file and footprints.db-shm and a footprints.db-shm files in it.  It also has  "thumbnails" and "voices" folderswhere the pictures and dictated audio that are created with the app reside. 


I have copied the HTC Eris .footnote folder over to the HTC Incredible 2 SDcard.  The footprints application has a menu item to import pictures and data.  The pictures have to be imported individually.  While the pictures import and retain the address and GPS information, they display the current date and time, not the date and time when the footprint was orginally created.  When you try to import a database, it says no database found.


I tried copying all of the Eris thumbnails into the Incredible 2's thumbnails folder and replacing the footprints.db on the Incredible 2 with the one from the Eris but the app would not display the existing footprint pictures and the app would no longer save and display footprints created even though the pictures taken were in the correct folder.  I restored the Incredible 2's  footprints.db  and solved that problem. 


If anyone has ideas, I would be interested to know.  My guess is the Footnotes app on the Eris is a different version so the data is not transferable.

If I had to guess I would say that the issue is because of the different versions of Sense, I have noticed that some of the old files stored from a HTC Sense application doesnt always work on the updated version..
