mac files to pc based mp3 player

i have an mp3 player that uses a sandisk flash memory card. the device formats the card internally to DOS_FAT_16. it is supposed to be compatible with mac os x. when i plug it into my usb the disk mounts and i can copy mp3 files to it but when i go to play them both forks of the mac file (even the invisible "._" fork) show up in the display. it stumbles on the invisible fork and i have to manually skip over the "._" file fork to get to the playable fork. i have seen methods described for accessing and discarding the "._" fork in osx but i can't get any of them to work. any suggestions? how about software, preferably freeware or shareware, that would make the files compatible?

You could zip the mp3 files using stuffit on osx and then unzip them on xp or whatever.

I get the same on my W8001 Phone. You can not always delete them from the Phone either. Ill try the solutions from versiontracker, but why would you zip them on a mac and unzip on a PC?

Thanks
