    If you have a card reader:

    Copy the directory structure and all files from your old card to a temp folder on your pc.

    Then put the new SD Card in you card reader and copy the whole directory structure and files back to the new card.

    Put the new card back in your Treo. You should be set to go, although you may be asked to reverify some software program permissions that were installed on the card.

    Cheers, Perry.

    Yup. Just get the two cards to look exactly the same.

    Good Question.

    If memory serves me right -- I have done it both ways over the years with no apparent adverse outcomes. (64mb==>128mb, 128mb==>512mb, 512mb==>1GB, and 1GB ==>2GB) I would err on the side of copying it over. I believe the file is a "name" file for the SD Card "volume" and not a file that indicates to the Treo's system -- what "SIZE" the card is.

    The benefit to bringing the file over is -- it makes the new card "look" in name, as well as, directories and files -- the same as the old card.

    If the Treo chokes on the new SD card and thinks it is the same size as the old card -- then try it without copying that file over.

    ANYONE OUT THERE WITH AN ABSOLUTE ANSWER?

    Cheers, Perry.

    i got it, havin a paarty...i did it, all by myseelf...well, with you guys help
    at first i was having problems with card being seen as an alias and not even able to eject properly from computer when copied folder,

    then after 3 tries i realized needed to copy and paste items IN folder, not the whole folder to the card(i guess i was confusing the computer)

    everything is in... even my pix and MOST importantly high scores at textwist...

    p.s.-i don't see a volume.nam, just coped and pasted ALL the icons and folders seen when select card in card reader...

    I did this very thing tonight. Went from 1GB -> 2 GB.... copy method is all you need to do.

    I did this exact thing 1 week ago. I simply placed the old card into my card reader on my desktop, copied all of the files into a folder on the desktop, and copied them back on to the new card. Worked flawlessly. Just like my treo.
