Need advice about eReader and unlock options

I just found out that my credit card has been compromised. The credit card company locked my card and notified me after it noticed some suspicious activity. I am a long-time Mastercard customer and have always appreciated their customer service. They are sending me a new card which I will have in 3-5 days.

My question is how this will affect my ebooks as this no longer valid card number was used to purchase many books. I understand that I can still use the card number to unlock them even if the card is no longer in use by me. But when I get the new card, I want to be able to buy more books. I read on the Fictionwise site that you can only have three card number with them, so I am worried about what will happen in the future.

Can my ipod store more than one number so I can read both old books and new books (purchased with the new card) on it? Or is there a way, once I have the new card number, to somehow convert everything over to the new number (which would mean I would have to re-download ALL of those books, I guess...) Or is there software I can use to remove the DRM and make these plain old eReader books, and then just purchase new books with the new card?

One of the reasons I am buying ebooks now instead of pbooks is I want to be be able to keep them, so it is important to me that I continue to be able to both read the old books and purchase the new books, no matter which credit card I happen to be using. I welcome any advice about my options in a situation like this one.
