Ok check this

When i look at these files in ms windows , everything is there

Files are being files, like ther supposed to


But there invisible in DOS, even the command prompt dosnt see em.

when i put toghether with diffrent files, It sees those files, no problem.

Ive never seen that before.

You probably have either the System or the Hidden (or both) flag(s) set. IIRC you need to use the "/a" switch to view files with other attributes.

Try typing "dir /?" and see the options for the /a switch.

So which one was it? HIDDEN, SYSTEM or both?

If it's just HIDDEN you can "fix" it under Windows (right-click > Properties). If it has SYSTEM too, I believe Windows won't normally let you change anything.
By the way, you can have these files always visible. In Windows Explorer, open Tools > Folder Options... > View and check Show hidden files, folders, and drives and uncheck Hide protected operating system files. But be super careful not to mess with anything critical. Especially in c:\.

Anyway you can always change all that through the command line using attrib -h -s filename. Check attrib /? for more information.
