Having just needed to find out where all the space on my ipod had disappeared to i googled to find out how to view hidden files. That brought me to this guide http://guides.macrumors.com/Viewing_hidden_files_on_a_Mac. So i did that and it worked. However i also found a far easier way: Simply drag any file or folder from the ipod drive inside finder into firefox (maybe safari too, haven't tried). The you can see all the files and folders with a check box option to view those normally hidden as well. I include a screenie: Thought it might be good if someone added this to the guide? thassall, oh and hi all, my first post here!
