    You obviously didnt search very hard. Connect the phone to your computer in Disk Drive mode, or take the card out and put it in a card reader. Make a new folder on your computer, select EVERYTHING on the card, and copy it to the new folder. Put the new card in the phone, or put the new card in the card reader, and copy everything from that folder back to the new card.

    first, I understand the 32gb cards are slower as they are lower class (speed) than the stock 16gb cards, no?

    anyway, plug the phone into your computer, mount the phone, copy all the stuff off your 16gb stock card to your computer. then, you could even put the 4gb card into your phone as well, mount that and copt taht over as well. Then, put the 32gb new card into the phone, remount the phone, copy all stuff from both cards over to your phone from your computer.

    expect it to take a while if your card is full

  8. Or You can buy 2 micro sd card readers which are not expensive and transfer data from the 2 micro sd cards without copying any thing onto the computer

    Is there like a how to? And do I need an app for the droid or not, I thought it would make a backup file on the computer and I could just load it up on my 32gb micro sd.

    Your best option and the most fastest would be to have 2 card readers and just transfer the files over that way, they will show up under your computer icon if your on vista or higher.

    Or you can do as others have mentioned and put your phone into the file browsing mode, when you plugin your phone to the comp you should have the option to do it in the notification drawer, at least on my vibrant it was set that way by default but to update it I had to change a setting for it to ask what i want to do everytime I plug it in to my laptop.

    I told you exactly how to do it. If you would like me to number the steps, I can.

    No, do exactly what I told you.

    Which is exactly what you are doing by copying everything to a folder on your computer.

    Come on man, its really not that hard, we have told you THREE times now. When you connect your phone, pull down the notification bar, and select Disk Drive mode. Or, go to Menu-Settings-Connect to PC. Its really not that hard to find, you can go through every setting on the phone in under 5 minutes. If you would just look you would find it.
