Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I installed the new Virtual box 3.1.2 and I did add a Shared folder (my music folder) now the music folder I can see without problems but I am not able to see any folder with letters such as a "ë" I tried reinstalling Virtualbox change language settings in Windows xp and nothing works.

I use Gentoo amd64, and inside Virtualbox I use Windows XP Pro with SP3.

I added a screenshot to this ticket, as you can see in my Linux I have a folder called "Radio 538_ Tiësto`s club life podcast" and in my windows this does not show up.

How ever if I change Tiësto to Tiesto then the folder will show, unfortunately I would need to have the Tiësto for Itunes.

I am sorry if it is not very well explained, on the forum they explained me to write it up here:

Just to add some more information, I reinstalled Virtualbox once more and tried installing Windows 7 but this also gives the same problem, the language I used was US. We also tested it with my friends pc and he has exactly the same issue.
