when must you covert the g to moles when using the equation for specific heat?

Specific heat capacity always uses grams, while molar heat capacity uses moles. So for specific heat capacity you would never need to convert to moles.

Molar heat capacity uses J/Kg.M as the unit.

Depends on the heat capacity you use. Always write out your units to make sure you're using the right value!
