I've not had much call to FTP anything from my laptop to my Xboxes but I still set up a FTP network using Filezilla which once I understood how to use it seemed to work fine.
However today I wanted to transfer some folders to a Xbox containing various jpegs into a folder I'd created on the F:\ drive named Comics. It already has about a dozen files/folders I'd transfered by USB flash drive months ago. Filezilla recognised the folder name but when I clicked on it I received an error message that it had failed to find the directory and, obviously didn't display the contents.
I repeated it several times with the same result. I tried closing the connection, restarting Filezilla, rebooting the Xbox then the laptop and even tried renaming the folder. Same result.
In the end I just FTPed the jpegs into the Pictures folder also on the F:\drive and from there into the Comics folder. No problem.
So any ideas why Filezilla might not like the Comics folder because I've not had any problem with it displaying the contents of the other self-named folders I've created?
