Android SDCARD files missing on droid but viewable by windows

I have a Motorola Bionic Droid.  I had successfully copied music to the SDCARD  on it at one point  from my WIndows PC.  Then I went ahead and stupidly installed the motorola "helper" app that installs when you plug in the droid.  After that my problem is that via WIndows Folder Explorer my music folder and all the music I copied shows up.  But, when I use ASTRO or the music app on the droid it can't find any of my music at all.  

God ..is this like the itunes nightmare that the helper app is removing the music folders because it tries to reconcile to folders on teh PC that don't exist?

I don't understand why the PC can see the music on the SDCARD and play it if I click on any song but the droid can't find them!!!
