    Just got a new 16GB MicroSD, don't ask me why....

    But, can I just copy the old SD card over, or are there any hidden files that would require a clone of the card?

    I don't think there are any hidden files so you should be able to just copy everything over. You could always double check by letting windows show the hidden files though.

    I copied EVERYTHING in windows from the old SD card to a folder.

    Then formatt the new card (before moving over the Windows stuff).

    Put the blank card in. Settings > SD Card & Memory > Format SD Card

    Then copy the old files (from the Windows folder) back over, EXACTLY as they were. It will ask to replace old files with new ones? I said Yes to All.

    Success.
