Hi Guys,

My friend had some files on his Macbook Pro which were created in Excel, he then loaded them onto a USB memory stick no problems. When he puts USB into another Mac or Windows laptop the files have been created to cpgz files and cannot be opened. Also when memory stick is put into another drive it is creating ghost files ... Any ideas anyone why it is doing this?
QUOTE Thanks
