Deleting "._*" files

When you copy files from OS X to a non-Apple drive, Apple insists on
also copying a metadata file with the same name of the one you're
copying preceded with "._" (e.g., "MySong.mp3" will result in two files,
one named "MySong.mp3" and another useless one named "._MySong.mp3").
I could have sworn I used to be able to delete these types of files
using Rev, but I've tried on a few USB devices formatted with FAT-16 and
not even "the detailed files" shows any of these dot files, even as the
device itself shows me they're there.
Anyone know how to identify and delete these annoyance files in OS X
