Win 7 - open the drive on the computer, click the "organize" drop down menu on the left - go to "folder and search options" - select the second tab (view) - select "show hidden files, folder, and drives" - Hit apply then ok - all of your files should be visible now - select all files by hitting "CTRl" + "A" - right click on one of the files and select properties - uncheck hidden - when/if another window opens select the best option for you - now all your folders should be visible again - you can repeat the first few steps to make your hidden files invisible again if you wish.

Can you try this,
1. Plug in your iPod 2. Open my "My Computer" 3. Locate your iPod's drive 4. Confirm that you can see all folders, hidden and shown To confirm this Go to Start > Control Panel > Folder Options > Click the "View" tab > Under Hidden Files and Folders "Select Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives" This will make visible all hidden files on your computer. 5. Back to the iPod open iPod_Control 6. Open the "Device Folder" 7. Rename the "_locked" file to "_unlocked" Exit all folders and safely remove your iPod. Then check to see if it is resolved.

Sir I tried to copy the pictures from camera to my PC but its not opening n show no folder in side the camera but when i take out the connection from PC it automatically showing the pics in cam.Will you...


Hi, the photos are visible in the Camera and not when connected to camera because in Windows the photos are hidden. You can view the hidden files by following below mentioned steps:

Please connect the Camera to the Computer, then open the Folder containing the Photos:

Click on Tools>Folder Options>View tab>select Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives option.

Then, click OK. Now the photos should be visible in Windows.

Please reply me if you face any problem in following the above mentioned steps.

Hidden files are not showing


Hi there.
It sounds like you have a virus on your machine, apart from not being able to view hidden files and folders is there anything else thats going wrong with the PC at all?
for example on start-up do you get any strange error messages or has the recycle bin name been changed?
