Another possibility would be .DS_Store
They can be safely deleted.  I don't think the 10 series cares about the hidden files, but I always delete them if I forget to write protect the card.

Anything with the . (dot or period) before it is a hidden file/folder

It has been my experience that almost as soon as you delete them on an Apple computer, some of them magically get rewritten before you can safely eject the card.  Not sure if the hidden files Apple rewrites immediately back to the card cause a problem with the S9 PAP's.  The only other option is to format the SD card, not on a Apple computer and make sure the write protect is used and observed every time the card is read.  Of try a Toshiba FlashAir solution.

Please let us know what works and what doesn't.

RE: SleepyHead Software/SD Card Specifics
.DS_Store gets written by Finder. If you don't have any Finder windows open looking at that card, you should be able to delete it from Terminal. But it's a pain.

RE: SleepyHead Software/SD Card Specifics
Using Finder to delete the hidden files can be a game of wack-a-mole!

Easiest way is to use Terminal and the rf command.

For example if your SD card is named RESMED you could do something like this:

Code:
cd /Volumes/RESMED; rm -rf .Spot*; rm -rf .fseve*; rm -rf .Trash*; rm -rf .DS_St*; cd ~

A simple bash script works too.

If your SD card has a different name just replace RESMED with the correct name.  
If your SD card uses "NO NAME" you will need to escape the space using a backslash:
/Volumes/NO\ NAME
