Hi,
double check, if you don't have any view filter applied (like show only programs) when viewing the content of usb drive. This can happen if you use some image viewer (e.g. xnview, irfan) or some file manager as well (total commander, etc.)

Was there no error on file copy to this drive? I have seen when a file is copied and there is insufficient room or space approximating the totally of the drive, sometimes the process does not complete with creating the file and directory.

Try to copy the file back and see if it shows individual jpg's coming back.

There was an error because of insufficient space, I could not remember exactly what it said.But properties of folder shows 2600 file exist.Now usb drive is full.I copied it from another PC and it is no more available to copy.If this is the problem (error) will it be possible to get files?
