Why do these faded files appear on my flash drive when I remove it from MacBook?

Asked by DarknessWithin (814points) February 3rd, 2013
Lately I have been using my mom’s Macbook Air because it’s faster and plays videos 100x better than my Acer. I have begun to notice that when I use my flash drive in the macbook and then plug it into my Acer I get the faded out folders/files you see in the screenies above. In the case of the second screenie, there are also second, properly saved versions of those files where they alphabetically belong.

I have tried to delete these things, but they always reappear after it’s been connected to the Macbook again. As the folders delete it always says ‘deleting 90 items’. WTF?

What is going on?
