Stupid question about memory sticks & macs!

By thebarefootchef

  1. Hey Folks,
    I've just bought a little 128mb memory stick - my first!
    Plugged it into my powerbook (OSX) & there it was.
    I dragged a few mp4 files onto it & there they were.

    Then, I dragged them out & dropped them into trash & they vanished.

    However, my memory stick now claims to have only 93mb left.

    My question is therefore;

    Have I removed the files correctly & if not,
    What should I do?

    Thanks,

    Mac has a few hidden files on every media. the ~30mb does feel a bit much however.

    sorted!

    Plug the stick back in & empty trash

    Dead easy when you know how
