Any more details would be great, thanks!
On a mac it should be similar to:

Open up the applications folder, then open up "utilities" and then you'll see the Terminal icon. Open it and you'll have a terminal window with a command prompt.

enter the following commands:
Code:
cd /Volumes/Kindle/system/screen_saver

ls -a
You should see a listing of the file images you copied and the sneaky thumbnail data that's causing the blanks. Then you can do something similar:
Code:
rm -i ._*
This will prompt you to delete those files. Say yes to deleting those files that begin with ._ and you'll be almost done.
type "exit" to close the terminal. Then eject your kindle, and reset it by holding the slider for 15-20 seconds.

No more blanks.
