    Just format the sdcard when you get your new phone. What on the sdcard won't cause any problems. Just boot it up and first thing you do is format the sdcard.

    It shouldnt make a difference -- the image is nothing unless you tell your phone to access and do something with it.

    You could always put the card in a PC and format it if you really want.

    Yes...that's how it works. If you don't have an adapter for you pc don't worry about it. Just format it in the phone and enjoy.

    In order to format it in the new phone you'll have to unmount it first, but both the unmount and format commands are in the same settings area. Nothing will happen by using the old card in the new phone.

    Dude im so scared. The last Rom wouldnt let me get past touch the Android thing and it would force close on me which wasn't normal. I'm scared if the Rom would be on that SD card? Is that even possible or am i thinking outside the box?

    The ROM is inactive while it sits on the SD card. It's completely harmless, inert.

    It's like an application on your computer -- until you run it, it wont do anything.

    You'd have to install it before it'd be on your phone. Right now it's just, as LtKen put it, inert. If you want to think of it like a bullet it's there, but you haven't put it in the chamber and pulled the trigger yet.
