Default 1 directory not recognized via computer


I have a weird problem on my sony xperia tablet z2 (4.2.2). I have unlocked/rooted it, and installed sdfix. It works fine, I can write to my sdcard and all..

Now I have this one download app (equivalent to jDownloader), its called ShareDownloader. I have configured it to download to /storage/sdcard1/Downloads/ShareDownloads

This works fine on my tablet, but when I connect my tablet to the pc it look like this:

When I try to open it, I get this:

In SolidExplorer on my tablet I can open the folder just fine.. Why can't I open this folder when its connected to the PC?

Odd, and I have no experience with ShareDownloader, but have you tried adding a terminating / to the path, so /storage/sdcard1/Downloads/ShareDownloads/ ? You'll want to delete that file before retrying too.

Ok so this is what I did :
- remove app + data
- remove folder sharedownloads
- create new folder 'ShareDownloads' with solid explorer
- View folder on computer, it works
- Install app again and appoint to ShareDownloads
- Download some files
- Connect to computer, i can open the folder now, but guess what, its empty..

So it seems like all the folders and files the app creates are not accessible via the pc, what could be the cause of this problem?
