I'm looking for some help transferring back ups from device to device.

Both are M8 ATT

I have the back ups on external SD and while they show up on the backed up device, they don't show up on the other device.

What am I missing? I've never dealt with transferring back ups, but I think I have to change some coding?

Go into titanium settings on new device and change location of backup folder to external.

So you recommend using titanium for this process instead of TWRP?

You can, but the new device doesn't see it.

Have you tried moving the contents of the twrp backups from the external sd to the internal sd? Also, was the rom that was backed up a custom rom? My guess is that if it was, it enabled the read/write permissions to the external card which Kit Kat disables on stock roms. If that's the case, and your new phone is still stock, it can't restore from the external. If you're on a stock rom now, go flash this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2700310 to enable permissions and you should be good to go.

I'll try that.

Actually backed a up stock M8 and transferring to a gpe RUU I don't want.

Same as backing up stock before RUU but somehow it got wiped.
