._foo files are resource forks on non-HFS volumes

Marking as hidden is certainly a more elegant solution - it's the direct equivalent of the . on Unix and OS X. But whether you can do this will depend on the filesystem on the drive. Only FAT (and possibly NTFS, I suppose) have a hidden attribute to be set.

Mind you, since Windows only understands its own formats, perhaps most USB keys are FAT?
