Songs won't index correctly

I got a bunch of songs from my brother. I have a hundred or so. Everything looks fine. each song on an SD Card has an mp3 track and a cdg track. Named like this..

10CC - Donna.cdg
10CC - Donna.mp3

When I place my disk in the Karaoke machine It reads the disk and shows two files like this

10CC - Donna.mp3
._10CC - Donna.mp3

All the files are numbered even the ._ ones so it messes the indexing up and if you try to play one of the ._ files it just skips to the next track.

I have experimented and it's only with his music. The hardware is OK. Using the same computer and card I can add other music (not from my brother) that is indexed by the karaoke machine correctly. If I play my brothers tracks on my computer via vlc video player words and music play as normal.

Anyone any idea what is wrong and why my Karaoke Machine is indexing two tracks not one and how I can fix it. Thanks

Hi, Jawbones, are your other karaoke songs zipped, ie one track - for example, 10cc - Donna?
It sounds to me as if you might need to zip those files from your brother.

If you unzip one of those that play ok you will find they are identical apart from the extension, ie cdg.
If you send me one track I will take a look at it for you.
Karaoke is the spice of life.

Sounds like they are not zipped.

All the files must be named the same except for their extensions!
