When i load tracks from my MAC through Itunes onto my USB stick,i get duplicate files of each trackwhich are displayed when i access from the DS4. If selected by accident they lock the stick and i have to remove and re boot.
I believe these are hidden files, but cant stop them from being displayed or transferred to the stick. My MAC doesnt show them but the car does.

Has anyone got a solution to this.

Thanks

Hi Richard,

i have an app on my mac at work called Houdini which reveals hidden files so in theory if you used that on your USB stick it would reveal them then you could delete them?

You will be amazed how many hidden files are all over the place :p

The hidden files are put there by the Mac desktop: I think their purpose is as the description files to tell the Desktop what type of files they are and how to display them.

The easiest way I have found to get rid of them is to put your USB stick into a windows PC and delete them. Deleting doesn't cause any harm, but your Mac will remake them next time you put your stick back in to it.
