.Trashses filling up my SD card...

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I'm a relative Mac newbie here.

I have an SD card I use with my Treo to, amongst other things, save MP3s.

I've noticed that when I take the SD card to my Mac to delete the mp3s (so I can put some new tunes on it) a .Trashes folder is created that is filled with copies of the stuff I just deleted, thereby filling up the SD card. Consequently, the .Trashes folder has to be deleted before I can add more stuff.

Two questions:

[1] Is there a way to keep the .Trashes folder being created on the SD card (since my Treo has no use for it).


[2] How do I delete the .Trashes file from my Mac? (I guess these are "hidden files", cuz they don't show up in Finder when I browse the card. (I've been sticking the card into a Windows computer to delete the folder before putting the SD card back in my Treo).

    If you EMPTY the Trash before you unmount the card, it will delete the files that were moved into the trash.
