    The easiest way I can think of, would be to mount your sd card to your computer (make sure you have the drivers installed, plug your phone into your computer, drag down the notification bar, and select usb. click the option to mount usb storage, and hit ok on the pop up.) Then just drag everything out of the sd card into a new folder on your desktop. unmount the sd card, following the same procedure.
    Then, go to settings > sd card and phone storage and click unmount sd card. Then you can pull it out, put the new one in.
    after that, format the new one. Then mount it to your computer, the same way you did the first one, and drag everything back.

    I didn't realize you had had your card partitioned. But, I'm glad you got it worked out. Do me a favor, and post what you did to get it fixed. That way, anyone who is searching threads with a similar problem can use this as a reference. Thanks.

    haha yes of course!

    here is what I did since I used MiniTool to do it!

    I connected my phone to my computer with the drivers already installed! then I made sure to unmount the sdcard that already in the phone( the old sdcard)... then I put the new sdcard in my computer and I went straight to Minitool.. first I added a second partition for the new sdcard and then I just simply copied whatever in the old sdcard to the new one,, I had to do it using the minitool! that was it! Notice you have to copy the complete partitions not just the files!!
