Skydrive has not folders ?

Hi.
I have installed this:

SkyDriveSimpleViewer-1.0

When I want to access the SkyDrive, at get this info:

"You have 0 folders in SkyDrive"

I have made folders in SkyDrive according to the dump here.

Why am I told this ?

Is your LiveID of the type "@msn.com"? I believe it only works for "@hotmail.com".

Try this method of accessing SkyDrive instead. Windows Live SkyDrive - Map Drive

I had another email, but now I made a hotmail account.
I still get the same info.
Please look at the attachments.

That method says to map a network drive using this as the location: \\docs.live.net@SSL\yourcid .
I substituted my LiveID for "yourcid" but just got an error message:

I tried this instead: How-To Map Skydrive Using A URL Address which says "Once you’ve logged in the URL in the address bar should change to a cid-######.skydrive.live.com format. Copy the # part after cid-." But it doesn't. The address is of this format: https://skydrive.live.com/?lc=<4digits>

The page you linked to says:
"Just need to map the following, nothing else is needed. \\docs.live.net@SSL\yourcid\Documents or Public, Music, Pictures etc. at the end or just "yourcid" at end so you can see all the folders from Windows Explorer/My Computer without the need for Skydrive viewer or WebDav."

How do we obtain the "yourcid" number? (I don't see it in the url when I log in at the skydrive website.)

Go into SkyDrive, right click on My Files and copy the link address. Paste it into Notepad and its the bit following #cid=. Don't include the #cid=
