Can't see folders on network drive

I moved my music files to an external network drive before intalling

Vista. If I right click/properties on the music folder it correctly

indicates over 2,000 folders at 54GB. When I view this folder in

Explorer I only see 130 Folders with 7.14 GB. If I copy the entire

folder over, I only get the 130 folders. Another NT machine on the

nework can see all the folders.

There's a bug in an older version of the Samba server software used in many
Network Attached Storage drives. Check to see if there is a firmware update
available for your drive that includes the fixed version (it was fixed in
Samba sometime late last year IIRC).

I am having a similar problem with VISTA-x64 and VISTA-x32. I have a maxtor
NAS- shared storage drive, 200gB and a lot of the directories don't show up
in explorer. They do show up from a dos prompt, or if I boot back to
XP-PROx64, or any of 5 other systems running xp-pro and w2k. I check the
firmware in my NAS and it is from Feb of 06. If I boot the system with the 2
VISTAs on it back to xp-pro all the directories are thier. This has stopped
all my VISTA testing, I don't even want to take a chance and write to the NAS
for fear I will blow everyone's files away.

So I am assuming that I have the latest Network OS and I still have the
issue, but ONLY on VISTA.

Thanks for listening.
