Default Problem With Song Shuffle on R0

I just purchased an R0 yesterday. I am converting mp4 songs from iTunes on a MacBook Pro to 192 kbps using the iTunes converter and importing the mp3s directly into the Samsung unit.

The problem is, in addition to importing the actual song title (readable) there is also a version of the song that begins with "._" and says "can not read file." This is useless for the shuffling songs using any method because the "._" version is everywhere the playable songs are and if the the shuffle hits one of the "._" prefixes, the unit can't read the file and stops playing. Prior to the firmware upgrade (discussed below), the unit would just shut off and go through some system check every time I turned it back on.

The R0 I purchased came with firmware version 1.13 and I updated to 1.19 today. This made absolutely no difference. Since I intend Shuffling is extremely important to me, I would appreciate any advice or suggestions. I am not very computer literate, so I hope I explained the problem clearly.

This unit is by far the best sounding DAP I have ever owned and I would hate to have to return it because of something that should be so basic -- shuffling.

Having said it is the best sounding unit I have owned, for those interested, I notice a much louder buzzing through the Shure 530s since upgrading the firmware.

Thanks in advance for any help!
