View Full Version : OT: Some Folders invisible on MacOS 10.4.10 on external NTFS drive

I have an external NTFS drive which I share between a PC and Mac. It is NTFS and not FAT32 because I have DVD iso rips on it, which are individually larger than 4GB. The mac appears to mount the drive correctly when I connect using Firewire or USB 2.0. However some Folders that I know are there don't show up either in finder, or even from the Unix prompt when I do an "ls -la".

Strangely if I cd to the folder (because I know the name) on the unix prompt, or use the finder's "go to folder" function, I can get to the folder, and then browse its contents.

What's happening here?
