Windows 7: Strange occurence in properties window

27 Dec 2011   #11

W7 Ultimate SP1, LM18.3 MATE, W10 Home, #All 64 bit

Are you using some sort of "media manager" software (e.g. iTunes)?

I've read a lot of comments from people using iTunes (in Windows) complaining about weird behaviour.

Ok, the problem is solved (i guess). The additional files were in fact .jpg images used when playing an audio file. Those images were not shown even if you checked "Show hidden files, folder and drivers" in folder options window. But, if i went to start, type "cmd", go using "cd" command to that folder and then typing "dir /a", it would show them (a jpg file is called "AlbumArtSmall.jpg" for example). Strange thing, but i did not know about it until i searched a little more on google. Anyway, thanks for all your help! :)
EDIT: no, i do not use itunes, those music folders came with those .jpg files from the begining.
Happy hollidays!
