Ok I put some songs on my DSi using a SD card but It reads ._Dare but cant play those songs I know that the ._dare has something to do with Mac extra info for files but how do I get rid of it?

Aren't those music files MP3, are they?

From Wikipedia:

Supported file formats include AAC, .mp4, .m4a, and .3GP; MP3 files are not supported.

Ok It can play the Music fro the normal Dare file but there is another file that is ._Dare And I know that file has something to do with Mac formatting. When i look at the file on my Mac I do not see the ._Dare But the DSi Shows it as another music file.

The "dot" files store metadata used by OS X. They are normally hidden when you view the storage device from a Mac. You can safely delete them from the SD card either from the DSi (if it has a file management utility) or from a Windows machine.
