Default Hidden Files

I have a Maxtor 200GB external.

I have a few folders, that told around 180GB.

All of a sudden, one day, the folders (around 8) became hidden. So, I had to change the setting so I could view the hidden files. Most of the files were mp3s. They still played fine, until today.

How can I remove them from being "hidden" back to it's normal state?

Right click on the folder, select properties, and remove the checkmark for "hidden".
