Any clues?

Ok, first off, where exactly are these files located? How big are they? Highlight one that won't move, then press CMD-I to get an info sheet.

How exactly are the "normal" SD cards formatted? Select one in Finder and press CMD-I to get the info sheet. See my screen cap for an example. And are they even "normal"? Where did you get them? What specific brand/model?
