Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W530 Digital Camera ?

Cannot open files on SD, and there are corrupt files

\015 My friend and I filmed a funny video in Wal-Mart this afternoon on my Sony Cyber-shot. I got home maybe 2 hours later, plug in the 4GB Sandisk SD Card from my Sony, and the following Files/Folders come up on the SD Card: "x" - Movie Clip, "****" - Image, "Secret" - Folder, "****" - Windows Media Player, "Passwords" - Notepad, "DCIM" - Folder, and ".Trashes" - Folder. I know whenever I used to put my SD card into my computer, that the "DCIM" - Folder would come up and would have all of my taken pictures and videos. But what I don't get is how those inappropriate files/folders got on my SD Card. I have never watched **** or anything of that sort on my computer or on my SD Card. I just wanted to upload the video that I took with my friend today onto my YouTube account; but I cannot even open the DCIM folder: it does not let me.\015
