Hi,
I just got the Elonex ebook 600eb, but whenever I have had it plugged into my iMac the ereader shows 4 or 5 empty folders.
I think it is seeing the hidden folders the Mac makes (ie. .trash) as real folders, is there a way around this please?

P.S. sorry if this is the wrong category for this.

p.p.s. The above is not a problem on a Windows PC.
QUOTE Thanks

What are the names of these empty folders? And for that matter… the names of some non-empty folders for reference. Do you normally see hidden folders in OS X? Any chance you could post a screen cap?


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Hi,
I have just found that using a program called BlueHarvest is a way around this.

Thanks
