I would like to know how to be able to see these files. Lets face it, since they exist one should be able to see them. I would also think that apple software would be capable of showing these.
Any way to see these?

They're not files.
Older Mac files came in two parts (called forks). One, the data fork, held the actual information. The resource fork held various kinds of metadata.
Modern Mac files don't use forks. They're no longer needed.
Other OSes don't understand this resource fork. On other OSes and disk formats - like the flash drive - the resource fork looks like a second file. It's not, just a dead bit of the actual file.
So, you want to see them? There are a few ways of enabling invisible files. Do this for the flash drives.

Google is your friend at times like this:
Remember these are not files, just deprecated fragments of an old file format.
