i have a usb hard drive formatted with NTFS that is giving me trouble. I have a media player connect to my tv that, via the network, accesses this drive on my laptop. i believe the player is linux based.
i tried moving some files on the usb drive using the media player and now most of those files are corrupted. for some reason files such as .txt and .avi now are showing as directories. if i try to delete them i get errors like 'cannot delete, invalid directory name'. the files all now have folder icons.
anyone know of a way to fix this? i downloaded a MFT editor but i don't know what to edit to let the system know that this IS a file and not a directory (or vice versa).
thanks in advance,
