Windows 7: Files not showing up on burnt disc...

Files not showing up on burnt disc...

I burnt a disc with various files on it, basically two folders and only one of the folders shows up in Windows, while both show up in Linux. The disc was burnt in Windows and so shouldn't be using an extension that isn't supported by Windows...any ideas?

Do both folders contain files, or just one of them?

What type of files do the folders contain? Also, try to make sure the "hidden" option is disabled on the folder. Or try to enable "display hidden folders" option.

I do have it set to display hidden files, they're audio files. I was thinking maybe it could be related to multisession, the files being deleted on the newer session, but I'm pretty sure I finalized the disc the first time around.

I'm guessing this is related to Windows 7 UDF drivers...

I know you said you're pretty sure you closed the disc but just to humor me:

Place it in a CD-R or DVD-R drive, and open it with burning software. If you can see the files it's likely not closed.

I checked and the disc is closed.
