So, I've got a computer in my car that runs windows. I dumped my iTunes library into the "My Music" folder and fired up a program called Centrafuse and it tries to play these ._songtitle files. They are all .mp3 files, but it seems that Centrafuse is the only program that can see them. Windows has no idea that they are there. I found and removed all of the .DS_store and the ._DS_Store files by searching for "._" Which makes me wonder why it didn't see the files in question.

Any suggestions??

Those ._songtitle files are resource files used only by OS X. You can prevent OS X from copying those files to your car computer by a preference panel app called BlueHarvest.

Amazing! Wonder why that didn't show up in my Google search?

Thanks a ton :)
