Is it me or is it just not possible to have correct creation dates on Flash drives?

I see that zero date Jan 1 1904 on every file I put on such a drive.

I am using Tiger 10.4.11 on a powerPC iMac 20"

It does the same thing with files on a Windows 2003 network as well?

It does seem to save the additional file on these drives but never interprets them correctly. You know - that ._file thing.

Surely this is not normal behaviour.

Can anybody else confirm this or point me to a discussion space on the topic

Thanks a heap

Bob J.
