Raster to Polygon, Fixing the Projection

I have an ecosystem raster layer of the state of Florida that I need as a polygon shape file.  The Raster file has 4 columns: Rowid, Value, Count and Class.  When I convert it with "Raster to Polygon," there is no projection assigned, and half the state did not convert.  Not realizing this, I continued working and dissolved the layer to similar rows as the Raster.  Now realizing the problem with projection, I tried to project it using "Define Projection" and "Project" but neither worked.  Both cases i imported the projection from another layer.  The difference between the polygon and the raster are to the point where they lay next to each other and are different sizes. 

I need help getting this layer to project correctly and to have the columns join with the raster.
