ALL Media files on mem card are hidden

Hi,

All my media files on the memory card are hidden.

When i select any of the options in Media menu,

I can only access the item that have been saved onto phone memory.

All the files/folders that where on the memory card have dissapereard.

 

When i am in Explore mode and select the Show Hidden option,

I can see all my previous files/folders.

All the folders on the mem card have been hidden, and thus my device cant access the files.

 

How do i change this attribute permanatley, restore it to what it was.

 

Thanks,

Thabs

Re: ALL Media files on mem card are hidden

Hi,

 

Connect Phone(media card) to comp. and browse the  hidden folders and change the attribute of hidden folder to unchecked in folder property.

 

Right click on folder >> properties >> in Genral Tab > uncneck Hidden Attribute

 

It is very simple ..............

Re: ALL Media files on mem card are hidden

hi,

 

I think some virus activities make ur folders hidden when u have connected ur mem card to comp. earlier .

 

if ur data is important copy it or take bakup by copy to comp or elsewere.

 

and format ur memo card.

Re: ALL Media files on mem card are hidden

i am having the same problem and nothing I have found on here works Smiley Sad I hope there is a solution to this problem.

the only way I can delete files is if it hook it up to computer.

if pics are in a sub folder now I can delete but if they are in the main folder the option to delete isnt even there.
