You know when you have a folder full of media and VLC is the default player?? My folders are empty looking, like they have nothing inside them. I click the folder and all the media appears without any problems. A bunch of ugly looking orange cones.

It's just weird to see the folder they are all in to "appear" empty when they clearly are not. Does anyone know what causes this condition??? I guess it doesn't really matter since the media is definitely in the folder I am just curious as to why the folders look like they aren't holding anything.

You need to take ownership of the files. The takeown and file permissions should always be performed unless the ownership/permissions are given to a standard user or group, You, the user, is seen as two different users by the NTFS file system, which uses unique Security Identifiers (SID) rather than human readable names. This is also true of the username on subsequent installs on the same system. SIDs are constant across installs which means setting ownership can work across installs - but is ironically a weakness in security should a malicious user gain access.
