Windows 7: Can't share ONE folder

Can't share ONE folder

I just installed Windows 7 and set up a secondary drive to share many folders including music, video, pictures, etc. and want to be able to view or listen to this content on my PS3. I set up sharing by creating libraries for each media type in WMP12 and set the sharing and security permissions on each folder, all the settings on each folder are identical to each other. Yet when I turn on my PS3 all folders except for one of the video folders I am sharing appear. All my music, pictures, and the other 2 folders full of videos appear but one doesn't appear and I have no idea why. I've tried turning sharing off and on on that folder, creating a new folder and naming it the same thing and a different name and moving the files over, removing and re-adding the folder to the WMP12 library, and made sure the settings are identical to the folders that appear but nothing works. Any idea what could be causing just this ONE folder not to appear on my PS3?

No, like I said all the properties in this folder are identical to the ones that work, no differences. And I did use this folder in another OS but so did I with the rest of the folders that actually work, just had to change the settings. My user is the owner (changed it from the default administrators) but I have my whole homegroup set up as readers, just like the others. It is the weirdest thing that just this folder out of all of them won't work and I can't even create a new folder and add it to a library and see it on the PS3.
