quick update: used xcopy to replicate the usb to c drive
All files copied - saw files copying but even on c they are not visible.
You could give the following a try......
Flash Drive Disinfector
Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs from Here and save it to your desktop.
o Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
o The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
o Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
o Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.
IF the above doesn't help......
Go to Start --> Run, then type Regedit
2. Navigate to the registry folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
3. Find a key called CheckedValue.
4. Double Click CheckedValue key and modify it to 1. This is to show all the hidden files.)
Ive solved the problem
Thanks, I tried both of these earlier today with limited success. The change to the registry did allow me to be able to set the "show hidden files" flag (but doing so doesn't reveal the hidden files) and the flash disinfector doesnt seem to have helped.
I have been playing around in msdos and solved the problem.
I learned the files themselves were not hidden. I was able to copy files using xcopy and they were all visible in the destination location. The problem was that a number of folders were hidden. I tried to use the command "attrib -h" to change the attributes of these folders but cannot as I get a message saying "Not resetting system file" so i used "attrib -s" to remove the system file attrib and hidden attrib and now all is good.
Thanks for your help and the quick response.
SUPER - Great Job and thanks for posting back !
thank for your post, i find it very usefull
Having the Same Problem
Just not exactly sure as to how you were able to come to resolve it.
Problem has also prevented me from seeing my pictures on my camera also.
Any assistance in the matter would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Having the Same Problem
It would be in your best interest, to start a thread of your own. New posts (in a two year old thread) tend to get lost. If you do choose to create a thread of your own, make sure to include exactly what your problem is. Paying special attention to what you see in red above the box where you post:
'Note: If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.'
