How do I transfer or use Games/Apps on a sdcard from my old Lumia 520 to a new Lumia 640?

I have a new Lumia 640. I want to use the APPS/Games that are on my microsd card, which was in my Lumia 520.

The 640 is AT&T. My 520 was unlocked when I bought it. The 640 is unlocked by AT&T, they sent me an unlock code and I put the sim from the 520 in the 640 and it is all setup. My SIM/Carrier is TMobile.

On the 640 the microsd card shows as Other and says "these are file types we do not recognize that didn't fit in with the rest..."

Apps games show 0 bytes

Other shows 6.46 GB

Video shows 4 GB

They are both Windows 8.1

There has to be an easy way to transfer/use my old games/apps. How do I do it?

Unfortunately, while the OS's may be identical your apps are only registered to one. Your best option is to backup the apps that were on your 520 to your PC or Onedrive. Once done, then switch your SD card over to your new 640 and reinstall your apps from your PC/Onedrive.

*edit

I failed to mention, once you're positive that you've secured your information in backup, it'd be wise to clear the SD Card and install fresh.
