SharePoint Document Library will not upload documents

I have a SharePoint 2010 document library that uses document sets.  I had been able to create document sets and then upload documents into the document sets. Now, I can  only create document sets and cannot upload documents successfuly.

 The most recent changes I have made are as follows (Although, it is possible that someone else changed something that is affecting my work):

Created different permission groups
Admin          Full Control, Design, Manage Hierarchy, Contribute
Submitter    contribute
Reviewer     contribute

Created different views of document library:
(based on naming convention of document sets)

Admin view
Submitter view
Reviewer view

Configure three web parts for the document library as follows:

1st web part used Admin view, with a target audience of Admin
2nd web part used Submitter view with target audience of Submitter
3rd web part used Reviewer view with target audience of Reviewer

These views tested successfully.  The correct people are seeing only the view I want them to see.  

The users are able to create document sets.  They drill into the newly document set.
They attempt to upload a document (single or multiple). SharePoint displays message:

The document was uploaded successfully. Use this form to update the properties of the document.

The form displays the following fields:

Content Type: Document
Name: MyDocument.docs
Title: MyDocumentTitle
Target Audiences:

It does not matter if I leave the Target Audience field empty or select one of the SharePoint groups I created.  Once I click Save; No file is uploaded.

I even tried creating a word document in the document set.  Everything appears to work but no file ever appears in the document set.

The document library and document set were both working.  I have other document sets that have files that I have previously uploaded.  I dont understand how I can create a document set, but not be able to upload documents.

Any help is appreciated.

I suspect this is down to filtering on the default document set View. Go into library settings, and you'll see the Views listed. You'll be able to see the one used by the Document Sets. Go into it and see what filters are set.

Perfect!
That was exactly the problem. I actually have 12 views and permission groups.  The default view was filtering off of one of the views. So I would upload a document successfully but not be able to view it because it was filtered out immediately.

Thanks!
