Cannot select picture folder in desktop background

So I have Win7 64bit. I have a folder with 52 pictures at c:\wallpapers. I go to right click on desktop and choose Personalize. then I click on Desktop Background, my folder is not in the Picture location list so I click on Browse. The Browse For Folder box opens and I find the folder just mentioned and click on OK. And nothing. My pictures and / or folder do not show up. I tried a different folder, same results. Any suggestions?
