How to recover lost contacts on a cell phone?

So about a month ago my motorola devour stopped working and so I got a replacement phone and switched the memory card from my old one to the new one. I had a lot of contacts, music, pictures, etc. On the memory card but when I turned on the new phone most of the pictures and videos were gone, some of the music was gone and almost all of the contacts were gone. Does anybody know what might have caused these things to not show up on my new phone and if there is any way to retrieve the contacts?

    Did you also move the old SIM card to the new phone? That's where contacts are stored, normally.

    As for the memory card, if it had music, pictures and videos on it, then it STILL has, unless you deleted them.

    Buy yourself a memory card reader and view the card on your computer, you'll probably find that everything is there still, but may not be readable by your new phone.
