Most likely, you either have a virus or a domain policy restricting the viewing of hidden files.

Here's an easy fix:
1) Go to Start>Run
2) Type "regedit" and click "OK"
3) Expand to HK_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advanced
4) Select the value on the right named "Hidden". Right-click and "Modify".
5) On most virus/policy restricted computers, it will have a value of 2, which it shouldn't because it should only be 0 or 1. Change the value to "1" and click "OK".
6) Refresh whatever window you were working in, and it should show you all the hidden files. It will show for all your windows after that until you go to options to change it.

What do you mean you can't open files or folders? Are you saying the files or folders are not on the hard drive since it's blank? I think you've got a virus that has hidden your files and folders?

I'm not sure which operating system you have but you need to get to Folder Options.

In Windows XP you can click Start/My Computer. When My Computer Opens click Tools at the top of the window and then select Folder Options. When the Folder Options window opens, click the View Tab and scroll down and select Show All Hidden Files And Folders. Click OK then go click on your C: Local Drive and see if your folders and files are there. Hidden Folders will show up lighter than a normal folder.

I can't view hidden folders in Windows Explorer


I assume you have a Vista machine since you can't find the Folder Options under Tools. It's been moved (who knows why!) to the Control Panel. Open Control Panel, double-click Folder Options, and there are the choices you're looking for.

Itunes transfer of music


hi there,
you can use software to do this task which takes less time to get done :-
http://www.transfer-ipod-to-itunes.com/showproduct.aspx?t=a

or

Follow the steps outlined :-

1. You need to connect the iPod without iTunes doing the auto-sync.
  • Hold down the Shift and Ctrl keys while connecting the iPod to your computer.
  • Don't let go of Shift+Ctrl.
  • If iTunes doesn't open automatically open after connecting the iPod, open iTunes.
  • Don't let go of Shift+Ctrl.
  • Wait until the iPod comes up in the Source list under DEVICES (it may take a while, but don't let go of Shift+Ctrl)
iTunes may pop up asking you to choose an existing library or to create a new one. Click Create a new one so that it can just open.
Once it shows up, close iTunes.

2. Now find the songs on your iPod and copy them to a folder on your computer.

  • From the Desktop, go to My Computer and click once (or select/highlight) on the iPod, (usually drive E:, F: or G:)
  • Go to Tools > Folder Options.
  • Click View tab > scroll to Show Hidden Files and Folders and select it. Click OK.
  • Look in the iPod drive, and find a folder called iPod_Control and open it.
  • You'll see the Music folder. In it will be folders and files named F00, F01 and so on.
To see the original name of the song/file, just mouse over it.
  • If you need all the contents of the iPod on you computer, copy the whole Music folder.
  • If you only need some of the files, look through the Fxx folders until you find the files you want and copy.
  • To copy:
    • Click once on the folder or hold down the Ctrl button and click once on each of the folders you want.
    • Go to the Edit menu and select copy.
    • Minimize all windows, right click over a blank area of the desktop, select New > Folder (name it Songs).
    • Right click over the Songs folder and select Paste.
      • Depending on the number of songs, this may take a long time to complete.
All the hidden files that are on your iPod are playable on iTunes once you transfer them to your computer's iTunes.

3. Now have iTunes import that folder to your music library
  • Open iTunes (if needed) and go to File > Add Folder to Library.
  • Select the folder you want to import and click OK.
