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

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.

Backup folder shows as empty


Have you tried showing hidden and system files?
In the Windows Explorer, go to the Tools menu and select Options or Folder Options.
In the View tab, scroll in the list and make sure show hidden files is selected. You can also unselect the 'hide system files' option.

That will show you anything on the disk!
