I have a flash drive that I used on my PC for a long time and now I've been using it to move things to my mac from my PC. I've found that when I try to delete something off the flash drive from the mac it removes the file from the window but it doesn't free any space. I have to delete the files from the drive in windows to actually free up the space. How can I fix this so it works correctly on my mac?

After you move the item to the trash, you must empty the trash to complete the process.

I tried emptying the trash and ejecting the drive then reinserting and it still says I only a have a few mb's left. Macbook semi-pro is more like it. I now have to go buy CD's to move a file, this will make me late mac.

ps. this has happened with every jump I've bought.
