can't see files in samba mount


I have mounted a windows share on my linux box (slack9.1) and everything went fine except I can't see the files in one directory.
I can see the files if I look using 'smb://server/music/music' in konqueror but I can't see them if I look in /mnt/server/music.
I can see the contents of all the other directories in /mnt/server just not in the music directory.

(sorry if that doesn't make sense) Any ideas?

I can get nothing as root. Sorry I can't check on the windows box until tomorrow morning but I don't think that the permissions would be any different.

yeah most likely - but I would just check that it is not a hidden folder or something from windows side.

I got it working, but I'm not sure why. I created another share on the windows box and mounted it at another point and I was able to see in the directory.

wait, no I didn't. I can see it in konqueror, but I can't see anything in the directory from the console or in xmms.

Are you sure that you mounted it right? 'cause you being able to see it through smb://...... doesn't mean it is mounted somewhere, only that you can reach the mount.
try a
mount -t smbfs -o username=user \\machine\mount /mount_dir


it'll ask for the password (if it exists) and then it'll be mounted. Hope that's the problems

yeah I tried mounting it again and I can see everything else in the mount, just not in one directory.

I can see everything in /mnt/music/backup, but i can't see anything in /mnt/music/mp3 and both are off the same computer from the same windows share.

It really looks liek something specific to that folder - I don't think the issues is on the linux side for this reason. Could be wrong but that's what it looks like.
Make another win folder transport all the info into it - can you access it? now try to rename the test folder to what the original is called [also rename original as whatever_backup] - does it work?

- delete the original -

I'm not really sure what the problem is, but could there be limits on the number of files displayed, because there is a lot there? It seems that if I 'ls' a couple of times it shows up eventually. Same thing in konquerer is I hit refresh a few times.

This is ok, but it is not the solution....
