hey guys.

i have an external hard drive on 200gb where i have all my music on.
I have sorted it in folders with the letters in the alphabet.
i have the letters A,B,C,D and so on..

i have a virtual machine on my macbook there runs windows xp.. i do not use it so much but that windows xp machine does show all the folders with my music.. but then i shutdown the xp and open the folder in os X there is 0 folders..

right now has the folders the name like "-= A =-" to see if that change it, but os x doesn't show anything.. if i have the folders name like A,B,C... it shows a part of it.. but not all of it.

sry for my english it is not so good
