Insert a new SD card into S4 and make it work like before

I own a Samsung Galaxy S4 with 32 GB SanDisk external SD memory. After about a month's use, I frequently started getting the message "Memory card unexpectedly removed". After googling, I learnt that this problem is being faced by many users owning a Galaxy with San disk memory. I have now bought a 32 GB Samsung SD card for my phone. I want to insert the new SD card into my phone and want it to work flawlessly with all the contents as it was before. For this, can I just copy the contents of the existing SD card onto my PC and then insert the new card into the phone and copy back the contents? Or is there any other procedure to keep the applications on my SD card running as before. Please clarify.

Two possible ways to do the transfer.

The first way is to make sure that you have copy all files and folders on the SD card (including the hidden files and folders) to a PC and copying them again to the new SD card and make sure the volume label of the SD card are the same for the new and old SD card.

If the above method does not work, try the procedure below.

The other method is to root the smartphone and install Titanium Backup to backup all apps into the old SD card, copy the backup file to the new SD card and restore the apps from the new SD card assuming that your new SD card is large enough to store the backup.
