Windows 7: Hidden Folder Missing on a DVD :|

Hidden Folder Missing on a DVD :|

Hello guys,

I have copied some files to a DVD and put them up in a folder. I had to hide the folder due to privacy concerns. After a few days when I tried to access the hidden folder, i wasn't able to see the folder itself. I tried changing the folder options to "Show the hidden files" in start menu, but it's of no use. Could someone help me out in this, i want those files very badly :|

Can you show hidden files/folders?
I wonder if attrib would help?
In unix/linux, chmod would do it.
