Exclamation Windows Xp & Win 2000 compatibility issues

Hi Guys,

Just a quick problem im hoping some one might have an idea of the answer to??

A friend has documents on a memory key that she created at work on a win2000 machine. Recently she worked on these files at home on a win xp machine. When she took it back to the 2000 machine all her word docs etc were still there but any folders(and contents) where not visible.
Now when opened on the xp machine the folders are there but when opened on the 2000 machine or vista, the folders are not there.
The only thing i tried was when i had it opened on the xp machine i changed the compatibility for each folder to windows 2000 thinking it would work but it hasnt.

Has anyone of you got an idea what is happening??

I appreciate your help as she really needs this up and running again for work

Thanks

Have you made sure that you can see hidden folders on the win200 machine? Its very rare that this could be the case but its worth a try =]
