In order to properly diuagnose your problem, we need to know more. What folder? What files do you expect to see? What kind of files are these.

Can you give an example of a file you know is there that is not showing, giving the complete file name?

Your post is akin to calling a car mechanic on the phone and saying my car will not start. How can I make it go? Oh, by the way, it is a blue car.

More information is always going to yield a better result than bad information. Please, help up to help you

aight... its the folder where i usually download everything that i download. Its called my dowloads. (creative eh?) it wont show me any names for any files or subfolders at all. but when i go into the subfolder its ok there.it wont show movie fille names, picture file names, installation names nothing. It shows the thumbnail and i can manipulate the fine just like normal but it just wont show the names. if i hover the cursor over any file though it dies give the little info popup. ive tried everything.... if you need any more info just holler.


Thanks
