Hidden folders, please help!

I have a few pictures I'd rather no one saw, so I went to 'pictures' and made a new folder called 'backgrounds' and moved it to there and hid the picture. But now when I try to retrieve the pictures I'm going to media -> explore -> media card -> pictures....but it's not showing my 'backgrounds' folder, so I have no option to show hidden. Can anyone help?

Re: Hidden folders, please help!

You have to go to the folder pictures are in, and then press menu, and chose "show hidden", that way you can go ahead and access the folder. Also, whenever you go back, it automatically hides up again.

Hope this can actually help you.
