Ok this needed to be unchecked also, but I need to restart the computer for the affects to go in, but I cant right now because I have a bunch of things running on my computer.

I tried again to see the files on the flash drive after allowing all hidden files & they're still not showing up? (and I know there is data on the drive since it shows like 8g filled?

You can try using the command prompt.

Open a copy, and type dir [drive letter of your u3 drive]:

example: dir F:

I havent been able to reboot yet, but I'm still not showing the 8g worth of files.

Its really weird because there ARE files on the drive that I can see, there is even the main files I've created to store all my info in.

But when I go into these main files they just have a bunch of garbage?

Any idea? Maybe we should do a TeamView session?

You can use it, just not use U3 with it, right?

No U3 works fine & opens correctly with all the appropriate programs I chose. And I can even upload files fine.

But its VIEWING the files on the disk after I've put them on there that is the problem.
