._ Resource Fork files annoying! How do I remove them?


Anyone else having problems with these really annoying ._ files. They are resource forks dropped usually onto removable media (USB keys etc) by Mac OSX. Very annoying when connecting my mobile phone up and copying media to it. I end up with a load of ._ files which my phone can't read or delete!

How can I remove these files from the media as they are not visible in the finder? How can I stop them from being copied?

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
