I have a samsung conquer that came with a 2 gig sd card.
I need to move my apps over to a new sdhc card.

What is the best way to do this?
I have been able to transfer my pictures to my computer and though I might be able to copy the app files to my computer and then to the new sd card.

Just copy all of the contents of the sdhc card.

(you can drag all of the contents of the old card onto a folder on your computer, then copy them to the new card)

I don't believe there are any hidden files.  
If you are in Windows choose to show hidden files before making the copy.

Or you can clone the card if you have the appropriate software.

No, there aren't any hidden files.

Linux (thus Android, for that matter) hides files and folders by preffixing their names with a period ".". These files are, however, visible to Windows.
