Sounds more like a permissions problem.  Does the directory have execute
permissions as well as read permissions?

I know it sounds kind of basic, but it's always worth double checking your
filesystem permissions, and also verify if you use the force user or force
group option.  This may also cause an issue.  If all is set correctly, from
the parent directory, try a ( DIR /AH ) to view all hidden files, this will
verify if the directory is hidden, you might also want to try (DIR /AD) to
list all directories, regardless of the other attributes.

It's possible the problem could have to do with some code page issues, but I
doubt it, since you can get in the directory, you just can't SEE the
directory.  Did you try to CD into the directory, even though you can't see
it?  If you can, then it's definately hidden...
