Default Install New SD Card

Please Login to Remove!

I'm replacing the 1GB card with a 16 GB card, Whats the easiest way to transfer the data to the new card?
Copy and paste everything via Windows Explorer?
Backup and Restore via Desktop Manager?
Device Switch Wizard via Desktop Manager?
Or something completly different?

Thanks again for any help,
Jamie

I guess I'd set the blackberry for mass storage mode, connect to computer, copy everything from the media card to a folder on the computer, put new card in blackberry, then move everything from folder to media card. But that's me and I'm still using the same old card I started with.

I have used a card reader to put the old card in, then connected it to my PC.
Then, with the new card installed in my Blackberry, copy and pasted the entire Blackberry folder onto the new card.
Just saves a step

I've always used Windows explorer. Copy SD1 to a separate folder on the PC; copy contents of folder to SD2.
