I believe some virus caught your computer. If you can't find you're files try this.
-Go to that hard disk.
-In the menu bar look for tools.
-Folder option
-In the folder option window click view
-look for hidden files and folders
-In the 2 radio buttons click show hidden files and folders
-click apply.
If this is correct there is a way to remove those hidden things.
-Select the file or folder you wish to not hide.
-right click and look for properties
-unchecked hidden files and apply

hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya!

Try to connect the external disk-drive to a different computer.
If you still cannot access any files, then either:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the case is malfunctioning,
* the disk-drive inside the case is malfunctioning.

Read the serial-number of the external disk-drive from the case, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and check to see if the "warranty" for the device is still available. If so, the manufacturer will replace the device -- you might have to pay "shipping" to send your device to them.

If the warranty has expired, open the case, remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the USB-to-disk-drive device was the problem.

While the case is open, you could purchase a new disk-drive to fit into the case, and then close the case, and once again have a working "external" disk-drive.

Maybe the drive is partitioned into 2 or 3 partitions and only one is visible.
Try going into START -CONTROL PANEL - ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS - STORAGE and see what drives show up there. You may be able to assign a hidden drive a letter from there and it will be visible. NB Watch out though because changing the drive permanently may mean it wont work in the PSPwhen you put it back.

There are several songs that are on the m240 that are not showing when you look at it's files - how are these hidden?


If you added songs to the device in MSC mode, then switch to MTP mode, you will not be able to see the songs added in MSC mode and vice versa, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. Switching modes should make the files show up. For example, switching from MSC to MTP mode or vice versa.

For older players - e200v1, c200v1, c100, m200 - the files become hidden files if the modes are switched. An easy workaround is to edit the folder options to show hidden files.

STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the computer to show the hidden files

Windows XP:
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Under the Tools menu, select Folder options, then click the View tab.
3. Under Hidden files and folders option, select Show hidden files and folders.
4. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box.
5. Click Apply, then click OK.

Windows Vista:
1. Double-click Computer.
2. Click the Organize button on the upper left corner.
3. Click Folder and search options.
4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders.
5. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files check box.
6. Click Apply, then click OK.


SOLUTION 2 - Perform a Check Disk.

STEP 1 - Switch to MSC mode
1. On your Sansa player, switch the USB mode to MSC.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.

STEP 2 - Perform Check Disk
1. Locate the Sansa player under My Computer.
2. Right-click the removable drive associated with the Sansa player, and select Properties.
3. Click the Tools tab, and then click Check now.
4. Click to select the Automatically fix the file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check boxes.
5. Click Start.

My computer recognizes that I have 1.8 GB left on the disk but when I try to download songs it claims that the disk if full. What do I do?


Good day sir/maam, hi, your SD card may be infected by a virus that wont allow anymore software or files to be stored on the disk, run a virus scan on your PC, there is an easy way to check if your PC is infected, to check, on the my computer menu bar click tools, folder options, view, select show hidden files and folder, then apply, close the window, Now go back to the folder option, view and check the show hidden files, its changed. and goes back to not show hidden files. If this happens, download AVG anti virus and scan your computer.

Unless I am mistaken, the D drive or partition is the partition that contains the restore feature for yor laptop. This may or may not be hidden system files. As far as the available free space on your C drive, you WILL need to either delete files and/or backup and delete files. Image files, music files, cookies temp files take up a lot of disk space. Try this and I think you will find more free space. BPCS
