I know what you're thinking "empty your trash can" and well, i have. of course i searched google for help before posting here.

I have tried everything I can think off i've even put it into a windows computer and it's telling me it's empty so why is osx doing this? Is it trying to make me buy a £400 Apple USB stick so i wont have this problem ?? :p ;)

You can use an app like DaisyDisk to see the "deleted" files and clear them off. There are other similar apps that do this as well.

How is the thumbdrive formatted ?

Also you might try unmounting the thumbdrive then putting it back in.

Just use disk utility to format the thumbdrive.

Since you're a newbie a FYI.

there's a little blue up icon on the bottom right of every post. It's called the up vote.

That's how folks vote on a post.

Enjoy your music.
