    you can transfer it, just use a computer to copy everything on old card to new one. Officially you can use up to a 32gb sdhc card, but should be possible to use sdxc if you format it as fat32.

    I can confirm this works if you're skeptical OP. Did it myself from a 2GB to a 16GB.

    Good to know, I'm about to upgrade from a 2GB to 8GB and was going to ask the same question.
