Dvd drive is full of files but only shows a empty file folder, how do you open the file


The folder might contain a lot of what are called "hidden files"

To view hidden files, press the "Alt" key in your explorer window and go to "View -> Folder Options"
Then navigate to the View tab and under advanced settings select "Show hidden files and folders"

Or:

Go to the Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Folder options -> View -> Advanced settings -> Show hidden files and folders

That should fix it

Hello CyberGuru


its not from microsoft explorer, you have to be inside folder then hit tools and folder options and show or hide files.
Windows XP

To enable the viewing of Hidden files follow these steps:

Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.

Double-click on the My Computer icon.

Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.

After the new window appears select the View tab.

Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.

Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.

Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide file extensions for known file types.

Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.

Press the Apply button and then the OK button and shutdown My Computer.

Now your computer is configured to show all hidden files

if it doesnot work use spyware software to fix it.

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.
