As mentioned in another answer, on devices that use FUSE for SD card emulation (such as modern Nexus devices), only root can change timestamps of files in /sdcard. Since things like MTP and ADB don't run as root, you can't preserve the timestamps with these methods. However, if your device is rooted, you can fix the timestamps with a separate step ...


Quick and easy solution: simply use a PC or Mac to copy the files from the old SD Card (or PC) to the new SD Card. Use a PC/Mac with an SD Card reader/writer (there are USB-to-SD Card converters) which sees the card as a FAT32 USB storage. When you're done copying, re-insert the new card in your phone and reboot.


The MTP driver was bundled with Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP. To get Media Player 11, you must download it from the Microsoft site here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/download-windows-media-player
