On my machine, the mounted sd card was sdb

linux dd worked to copy the 2GB Sandisk SD to my 8GB kingston.
dd if=/dev/sdb of=/tmp/kobo.raw.img
sync
eject /dev/sdb
<Remove and mount new card>
dd if=/tmp/kobo.raw.img of=/dev/sdb
sync
eject /dev/sdb
<Remove drive and replace>
Only work on your second card!

Back up the contents of the 3rd partition (the fat partition)
mount -o shortname=mixed /dev/sdb3 /mnt/sdb3
cd /mnt/sdb1
tar -cvf /tmp/sandisk-8.tar .
cd -
umount /mnt/sdb3

Find the drive's name:
dosfslabel /dev/sdb3
"KOBOeReader"

Then I used fdisk to delete the 3rd partition, and recreate it, larger: (be careful, fdisk wanted to use the area at the front of the partitions)
fdisk /dev/sdb
p
...
/dev/sdb3 1068034 3862527 1397247 b W95 FAT32
d

mkfs.vfat -v -F 32 -f 2 -n "KOBOeReader" /dev/sdb3
sync
mount -o shortname=mixed /dev/sdb3 /mnt/sdb3
cd /mnt/sdb3
tar -xf /tmp/sandisk-8.tar
sync
cd -
umount /mnt/sdb3
eject /dev/sdb

Remove and install SD in Kobo
Boot Kobo
Go to settings/device information: "Onboard storage 397MB of 7056MB"
