Viewing Hidden Files in OS 10.4.7

Can some one tell me how to enable viewing of hidden files? On my ipod, I can not see the files where my music is kept, but I can see them on my pc when I enabled hidden file viewing. Also, spotlight can find the folder named "Music", but won't show anything in there.

Thanks!

Get the fantastic free OS X utility called onyx

there is an option in that to "view invisible files"

good to go...

I use a Finder plugin created with Automator. Its great since all you have to do is right-click and select it from the Automator menu. Her is the directions to create your own:
