I think this is about the best at the moment

edit: GMER is what what I used when I had a similar problem and it worked

Did you hide the files by mistake by right clicking on the folder or drive and selecting properties, then checking the box which reads hidden under Attributes on the General Tab?? (Make sure this box is unchecked), It's possible you, or someone else accident hid the files...

If the hidden file is not the case, then it may be a good idea to run an online scanner on the drive(s). Like OneCare Live at onecare.live.com or eset's online scanner, but OneCare is the best, without a doubt.

GMER is ok, Avira makes a good rootkit tool as well..

Sophos is only 100% usable if purchased, so it's not truly free ware..
(Because root-kits can run in processes, kernel, or be lodged in RAM.)

rKill can remove malware from RAM & processes (temporarily), it's free, it's a very good tool to kill all non-normal processes in ram, this way you can actually USE an infected system.

I have to ask, have you been using the Safely Remove Hardware Icon on your Task Bar where the Icons are (to the bottom right) to unplug your Removable Drives??

With XP: Press the Start Button > select "My Computer" > right click on the removable drive > select properties > select the "Tools" tab > run the check disk and find & repair bad sectors as well...

With Vista/7: Press the Windows Button on the Far bottom left > select "Computer" > right click on the removable drive > select properties > select the "Tools" tab > run the check disk and find & repair bad sectors as well...

If this is a media virus, which are a pain in the arse, you will need to go through the process of elimination, where you remove all the files off the drive, reformat it (right click on drive select format), and place the files back on the drive one folder at a time till the weird thing happens again, noting which folder caused the problem, then start over, take the infected folder and move files one at a time till you find the offender. Obviously this would be done after your run Check Disk to repair the drive (always)..
