    Problem using directory / file system

    Can someone help me with this --- I am at the stage where I am forgetting things I used to know years ago and am getting in a muddle with the Windows Directory / Folders and File System. You can see from the Snip below, two views of the same page from Explorer taken at the same time, which contradict one another. They show an identical list of files down to the file 'Videos' but from that point they are different. I cannot get the video files shown in the right-hand image, to appear in the left; and am unable therefore to select a folder or file, which is what I need to do. Apart from needing to do this for a number of reasons, including following Malwarebytes instructions for removing some malware, I want to understand what I am seeing, as it does not make sense to me. I had expected that when I click on Videos in the left pane the videos listed on the right would be displayed. They are not.

    The only way around the first problem would be to move the image files to a "hidden" directory - say a sub-directory of system or something. To do this you will need a 3rd party file manager like Y-browser.

    I believe the "flash" is used by the auto-focus so can't be switched off.

    I have run into a problem with the number of files that can be written to a SDMC card file directory on a Eten x800 running WME6. The application was a mapping program that appeared to halt after writing to a map tile cache directory ~1050 small 1kb map
    tile files. Once I figured out the app couldn't write any more files to the directory, I tried WME6 file explorer and it gave me an error saying it couldn't write to the directory. I then tried to write to the directory using activesync from my xp laptop,
    and it also failed. If I clear the directory and restart, it works again until reaching approximately the same number of files.

    I thought the problem might be with the FAT16 file system on the 2GB SDMC card, so I reformated to FAT32 on my xp laptop. I had no problem writing 2000+ files to the SDMC on the xp laptop. Once I put the SDMC back into the x800 I had the same problem.

    Since both microsoft aps and third party aps are having the same problem, this appears to be a problem in WME6. Has anyone else reported a problem like this? Do you know what the cause is?

    I have suggested to the developer that they change to a series of hierarchical cache directories to reduce the number of files per directory.

    Problem using directory / file system

    The image on the left is a dialogue box, which means you were in the process of doing something within a software. It's entirely different from the Windows Explorer display on the right.
