    This might seem a strange way to do this, but I would insert the card in your PC, copy paste all the files from the card to your PC, and then copy paste again to the new card. Double check everything is there and delete the old card. This does 2 things: PCs can do this faster, and it creates a backup copy of the files.

    Unless of course your PC doesn't have an SD card reader.
    In which case you can use something like AirDroid: (if you don't want to mess with USB cables) or just connect it via USB and then copy the files off that way.

    Glad you got it worked out. See you around the forums.

    what about formatting the new sd? is it necessary, and if yes how do I do it, and what would be the sequence of events for backup, formatting, copying?

    Welcome to the forums.
    If you have files on the card that you need to be kept, insert it into your PC by copy/paste. Then replace the card in your phone, and under Settings>Storage, you can reformat the card.
