Default SD Card Trouble

I got a new SD card, so I planned on moving all my data off my old card and onto my new one. Unfortunately, when I go to drag certain files to my computer, nothing happens. I've tried on three computers and the same thing happens. I'm getting extremely frustrated. Some help would be appreciated.

And yes, the card is unlocked before one of you suggest that.

Certain files? Why won't you just copy/paste the whole folders?

I would copy and paste the files, what Joba said.

What are these 'certain files'? What format and what name?
I find it curious that some files won't copy. I've moved the library on my 3DS and 3DSXL to a larger card without any problems.

Here's a video detailing the problem. Had to film it on my parents' computer.
