    I have been adding unzipped nes Roms to my pi2 (latest beta) and noticed that the rom always shows twice. Example; ._mario.nes & mario.nes. This is a pain for sorting and scrapping. Help?

    Thanks!

    A little more information. This is also happening with MAME roms. I am copying them over SCP from my machine to the Pi.

    They are files created by your mac that contain information about the real file, like time machine information or icons. Much like the famous .DS-_Store files. Your mac (and raspberry pi) hide them by default because they start with a dot.

    On linux these files don’t do anything, so you can safely remove them by browsing to the folder, and giving the:

    rm ._*

    command, which will remove all files that start with dot underscore.
