    Anyone that might be able to help me would be appreciated. I Like to create .jpg in photosop and save them on my Smart Media memory card thru a card reader and display using a memory card projector on tv. It really works, but since i got my new Mac I am saving like a copy of the .jpg file on the card that looks like this.
    I save "pretty.jpg" and when I look on my projector or PC there is an additional file named "._pretty.jpg" cant be opened in any program. What is this? Why is there a 2nd file being saved? Can I stop it?

    The 2nd file is the resource fork of the file. On an HFS+ filesystem, this is part of the main file. On other filesystems, Mac OS stores a second file for this information.

    You can ignore them.

    thanks Bear`!

    That was what I was thinking, I guess that I was hoping that there was a way to write to the card without the extra file because my digital media card projector doent know what it is and will not allow me to do certain things.
    So can it be written without it.

    Thanks again for your knowledge
