we may be on the right track.
Your advice *did* make all the invisible files on my hard drive visible (!!)
...but the files on the CD - not so.
I still only get the "Mac" folder showing, and I do get a single hidden file showing; so that shows that Finder is also showing all the files that it can see in the CD directory.
You mistake my purpose though - I'm not looking for hidden Mac files on the CD - I want to see the Windows files on the CD. Why?
Because the Documentation folders are with the Windows files!
There's a 130 page PDF with all of the technical data for the modem!
Now, I have used the Windows machine to get the manual copied from the CD to a flash drive, but now I want to know how I avoid a similar problem in future.
I don't want to keep a Windows laptop solely for the purpose of viewing (what would you call it? a "partition"?) the Windows part of a CD... I want to be able to use my Mac to "see" EVERYTHING that is written on the media that I load on my machine.
I still can't see all the folders and files that are visible when I view the CD on a Windows laptop.
