folder.jpg acting as folder, unable to delete

For some reason, in a couple of folders, Windows has decided to interpret the folder.jpg files as actual folder.

I'm unable to delete them and renaming does nothing (like renaming a folder). I've tried changing permissions with no success, it just throws up errors.

I've searched but can't seem to find a similar issue anywhere, so any help would be appreciated.

On an external drive, the folders that are having the folder.jpg issues contain multiple sub folders, those sub folders contain videos.
