Duplicate folders in Windows Explorer when attaching TPT via USB

When  I'm attaching my TPT to a Windows PC via USB, the Windows Explorer shows each folder on TPT's internal SD card twice. One folder of the two identical folder contains the files/subfolders (when it is not empty anyway), the other one is always empty.

I tested this on two different Win7 workstations with the same result. What can be done to get the SD cards folder structure displayed in the Windows Explorer properly?

Re: Duplicate folders in Windows Explorer when attaching TPT via USB

HI Guys, I updated to ICS last night with the ROW update. (Thankyou Lenovo). When I connect the tablet to my laptop (Win XP) it only shows two folders, attachments and DCMI. I thought being a somewhat related thread I would post it here.

Does anyone know why I can only see those two folders and cannot see the music and movie folders as an example?

backup all folders and just wipe all out. then put only folders that have something, ics will recreate rest.

seems like a MTP aND ics restrictions. Many native ics users are complaining about the same.
