    Might want to hit up the root forum since those are the users most likely using apps2sd.

    Just copy all the files on your current SD to your computer then transfer those files over to your new SD card.

    your old card had 2 partitions. one for the sd card and one android was using for apps2sd. so just copying wont work. i haven't rooted or used apps2sd but have researched it. so might want to do what JackT said and head over to the root forum

    Do you have to format the blank card with the Evo, then move the files over?

    I just now replace the stock 8GB for a Transcend 16GB Class 6 MicroSD card:

    1. Connected EVO to USB, selected Disk mode
    2. Copied contents of drive to temporary folder on PC
    3. Powered-off EVO, swapped MicroSD cards
    4. Powered-on
    5. Immediately went to Menu, Settings, SD & phone storage, Unmounted then Formatted
    6. Reconnected USB and copied files back to card
    7. Powered-down and Rebooted EVO

    I checked a number of applications I previously moved to the SD card and they run fine. I can now record 720p video without delays!!
