The terminal solution hadn't actually ocurred to me. In the meantime I found another solution in another forum, which was to download mucommander, and use that to find and delete the hidden files.
I'd never heard of it before (I'm pretty turd with computers), but it allows you to actually browse through the files which is handy.
Incidentally, I was getting the same ._* ghost files for any track that I had ripped in itunes (which was quite a few)...

Just signed up to say thank you Kazwan! Your script has been a great help to me as I own both a Fuze and Clip - it works perfectly on both. Good work!

I was very happy when I found your script, but the playlist is shown empty on my Sansa Clip.
Could that be due to the fact that I have iTunes 9?
The script is nicely shown in iTunes and seems to work perfectly. The songs are copied and arranged in separate folders according to the artists.
But when I access the playlist on the Sansa Clip, it appears empty.
Any idea why?
I have read other comments in this thread and I have looked for hidden files, but didn't find any.

I'm guessing Apple would like to make it harder and harder for any other device than the iPod to work with iTunes. Those devious, little, bas...

Good news, for those interested.
Apparently a bit of a false alarm from braut2; just an oversight in using the script.
Reports to me that it seems to be working fine, though a potential (very minor) bug was brought to my attention in the process of investigating the problem.
Which I plan to fix (and perhaps less than 1% of users will ever know the difference).

Thanks very much for this script. I downloaded and ran it with Mac OS 10.5.8 and iTunes 9 (following the "read me" instructions exactly) and it worked beautifully. Going out now to walk the 100 lb lab with my playlist. Thank you!
